SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #12 is Utah’s Sataoa Laumea (OL).

Utah’s Sataoa Laumea

Laumea is a junior offensive lineman from Rialto, California.

Coming out of Eisenhower High School, Laumea was a four-star recruit. He was the All-CIF Southern Section Division 10 Offensive Player of the Year. As a junior in 2017, Laumea was named first-team all-area and first-team All-Citrus Belt League. Laumea was also invited to participate in the 2019 Polynesian Bowl. Besides football, Laumea competed in track & field, doing shotput and discus.

His first season with the Utes was in 2019 when he used his redshirt, playing in one game against UCLA. During the COVID-shortened 2020 season, Laumea was a Pac-12 All-Conference second-team selection after starting in all five games at right guard. In 2021, Laumea started the last 13 games at right guard and was named Pac-12 All-Conference honorable mention.

This past season, Laumea started in all 14 games and was named to the Pac-12 All-Conference first-team. Laumea was the rock for the Utes offensive line that only allowed 1.07 sacks per game. He helped Utah rush for 217.6 yards per game, which was the 11th-best in college football (second in the Pac-12).
