Football for Polynesians is not only a sport, but a way of life. The player is not the only one who journeys through the sport. As family being the central concept of Polynesian life, football has been adopted into their cultures to obtain social mobility, capital gain and educational attainment. However, I am aware of the stereotypes football has created for Polynesian males, but what I am proposing is to use football as a tool for Polynesian males to obtain and sustain an education. I am also proposing the same for Polynesian females in the sports they engage in. Sports should be viewed as resource in obtaining education, despite the stereotypes. Football allows for Polynesians to obtain social positions where their voices can be heard. Football also provides opportunities for Polynesians to be in position to challenge inequalities specific to their culture and create pipelines other than sports. For this is why the gridiron to school pipeline challenges and is an alternative for keeping Polynesian males out of the school to prison pipeline.
