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.
