Before the game, defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko shared an awesome moment with his father and the rest of his family.Fehoko, a former transfer from Texas Tech, is originally from Hawaii. His father Vili used to play “Vili the Warrior,” an unofficial mascot-type entertainer, at Hawaii Rainbow Warrior games.The family has since come over to Baton Rouge since Fehoko’s move to LSU, and have fully embraced the Tigers.Before the game, Breiden Fehoko and his father did an amazing rendition of the “haka” during the team’s walk to the stadium.Video, via 225 Magazine’s Mark Clements:Breiden Fehoko (@breidenfehoko4) joined his dad in the #Haka this time and it was even more awesome #LSU— Mark Clements (@MarkClements225) October 13, 2018Apparently, this has become a bit of tradition for the Fehoko family at home games. The Advocate profiled the family a few weeks ago:Before LSU games, you can often find Fehoko’s parents and brothers wearing their own leis while they wait for the Tigers to walk down Victory Hill.Before LSU’s game against Ole Miss on Sept. 29, Fehoko’s parents were at the bottom of Victory Hill like always, but this time was a little different — his father Vili doing the Haka, a traditional war cry, dance or challenge in Maori culture.“I love their culture. I love everything about it,” Orgeron said. “They bring a lot of energy. They bring a lot of family to our football team. It’s very important to us.”The Fehokos have also started making leis, which they give to Breiden, and other members of the team before games.LSU leads Georgia 19-3 late in the third quarter. This would be a monumental win for Orgeron’s program.last_img
