Congratulations on winning the 2014 Heisman Trophy, and becoming the first Heisman trophy winner from the University of Oregon.

[Final Passage of his acceptance speech below.]

Two aspects of my life that I will never change. To the Polynesian community, I hope and pray that this is only the beginning. Young Poly athletes everywhere, you should take this as motivation, and dream big and strive for greatness.

Finally, Mom, Dad, Matt and the rest of my family, thank you. Thank you for sacrificing and providing me and Matt every opportunity we could have. Words can’t express how much you guys mean to me. I’m truly grateful to have you guys in my life.

Fa'afetai tele lava. God bless, and go Ducks.

Other people and Cartoon Network themselves don’t seem to understand WHY people hate Teen Titans Go

If you bring up TTG and your dislike of it, youโ€™re either greeted with people who agree with you, or people who say โ€˜Youโ€™re living in the pastโ€™ or โ€˜Itโ€™s a KIDS show get over itโ€™ or โ€˜This is different, itโ€™s not meant to be taken seriouslyโ€™

This is what people and Cartoon Network themselves fail to understand: We get that and pretty much fully accept this is not OUR Teen TItans

Itโ€™s not that weโ€™re opposed to the idea of a comedic reboot of something we love at all, I mean itโ€™s worked amazingly in the past! Sonic is really benefiting from it with the new cartoon series, and even something as serious as BATMAN turned into Batman Brave and the Bold, and a lot of people love that series!!

So itโ€™s not the fact that they turned Teen Titans into a comedy: Itโ€™s the fact that they did it wrong on so many levels, and the fact that the show runners and the network itself act like literal children when it comes to criticism.
