The Chargers rookie, who starred at linebacker Notre Dame, watched his alma mater Punahou (Honolulu, Hawaii)
play San Diego-area power Helix (La Mesa, Calif.)
, a game that was arranged as part of the Under Armour Brothers in Arms San Diego Classic.
Te'o was spotted with former Punahou teammates Robby Toma and Dalton Hilliard.
The Hawaiian natives were rewarded with a thrilling, 10-6 Punahou victory that was aided by a goal-line stand in the fourth quarter
During his time at Punahou, Te'o racked up numerous accolades, including MaxPreps All-American honors
, after registering 129 tackles and 11 sacks as a senior.
Next Monday, Te'o and the Chargers will open with a home game against the Houston Texans.
To borrow a reference from the sitcom Seinfeld, worlds were colliding for Manti Te'o on Saturday night.
