At the time of his high school graduation Te'o was an all-around superstar, loved by all who knew him
And on track for an all-sports scholarship and a full football scholarship at Notre Dame University. University of Notre Dame.
He was the gold-digger in his Hawaii home town
An active Christian and easy to connect with
hen, tragedy struck. His grandmother died, and later his girlfriend. Both of them on the same day
But the girlfriend did not actually die. The woman he was with, as the media found out, didn't exist
The catfish was the culprit from the beginning -- along with Ronaiah "Naya" Tuiasosopo as the woman who was behind the hoax, being caught in the middle of the water.
