Dream comes true for Trojans’ Lutui - East Valley Tribune
Taitusi “Deuce” Lutui prepped at Mesa High School and his family still lives in the city.

He has long been a fan of the Cardinals.

So when he watched the Cards draft his college teammate, quarterback Matt Leinart, in the first round of Saturday’s NFL draft, he started dreaming.

“I thought, ‘OK, these guys may go for an offensive lineman,’
” said Lutui, a guard who has also played tackle. “I’m like, ‘Please let me be it.’

The Cards made it happen with their second-round choice. Lutui and his family were thrilled, touching off a crazy celebration that forced Lutui to run down the block and away from his house just to conduct a conference call with the local media...
