Miller football standout Freddy Livai headed to BYU

freddy_livaiThe Miller High football team is still looking to get some on-field success, but it’s getting it off the field.

Soon-to-be senior linebacker/defensive end Freddy Livai has verbally committed to Brigham Young University.

“It’s been my dream school ever since eighth grade,” said Livai. “And my cousin goes there.”

Livai’s cousin is Sione Takitaki, who played at Menifee Heritage in high school and will be a sophomore this season.

Livai won’t be joining his cousin right away, however. As a Mormon, he intends to go on a church mission immediately after high school.

The BYU commitment didn’t come without plenty of offers. He received interest from several Pac-12 schools and, according to, he received offers from Colorado, Oregon State, UNLV, Washington State and Weber State.

As a junior Livai played defensive end and strongside linebacker, recording 93 tackles, 9 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery, 1 interception and 18 tackles for loss.
