GRAND ISLAND INDEPENDENT —
Lolomana Mikaela doesn't belong in Grand Island playing for the Nebraska Danger.
Danger coach Mike Davis said the 6-foot-2, 310-pound nose tackle out of the University of Arizona should be playing at a higher level.
"He was with the (Cincinnati) Bengals and tore his triceps," Davis said. "Realistically, he shouldn't be here, but I'm loving the fact we have him and he likes it here."
Mikaela has been a regular up front on the Danger defensive line this season. In six games he has 11 tackles with half a sack, one pass break up and on forced fumble.
"Grand Island has been so good to me and my teammates," Mikaele said. "It's always good when you have a bunch of good people around. That's makes it fun and makes you want to stay here. It makes you feel at home."
At the same time, Mikaela would love to move up in the ranks of professional football — just like former teammate Tommy Chavis.
