Manti Te'o overcomes tragic loss in family to lead Notre Dame past Michigan State
Te'o's 12 tackles, two pass breakups, fumble recovery, sack, general domination and overwhelming leadership powered it. In the worst week of his life, he played perhaps his best game ever.
On Tuesday evening Manti Te'o's grandmother passed away. Hours later, on Wednesday morning, he lost his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua to a battle with leukemia.
Hats off the the kid. Would love to have him as a Redskin next season, gotta love his heart and determination. Blessings to him and his fam.
