AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! The New Orleans Saints’ Scott Fujita

September 8th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Scott Fujita

Hails from: Oxnard, CA

Occupation: NFL outside linebacker

Known for: Being culturally hapa (adoptive father Rod Fujita is third-generasian Japanese-American) but biologically Caucasian; bowing after making spectacular defensive plays; being called the “Asian Assassin”; revering his grandmother Lillie, who gave birth to Scott’s father while interned in Arizona during WWII; helping to secure a Saints win yesterday in their season opener against Tampa Bay, 24-20, with a 4th quarter-interception; giving the people of New Orleans–who’ve just returned to the city after fleeing Gustav–something to look forward to for a change.
