The local Hawaiian TV stations had cameras rolling on Manti and his parents when it was announced that Te'o would be taking his talents to San Diego! Great moment for this family -- even though it came 22 hours late...
The top photo above shows Manti Te'o taking the phone call from the San Diego Chargers...

The wait is finally over for the most decorated defensive player in college football history...
Notre Dame All-American Manti Te'o was just drafted #38 overall in the Second Round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers -- who traded up to get him.

Folks, I just can't believe (check that, I don't want to believe) there are 32 football players in America better for a NFL franchise than Manti Te'o.
It had to be a long night in Hawaii for Manti and his family and today can't be much better. Hopefully, his phone rang last night or early this morning from a NFL GM who told him "we'll be drafting you at ---."
Here's the latest on Manti:
