Hamilton Tiger Cats quarterback Jeremiah Masoli and California based non-profit group CASE Project have wrapped up a series of football clinics and literacy workshops in American Samoa.

Masoli, whose parents are from American Samoa, said it's been an enriching and rewarding experience for their team and they return home with lifelong memories of the students and people who made their mission a success.

A total of 14 workshops on literary, promoting "A Samoan Voice" through poem and essays, were conducted by Masoli and the literacy teachers.

The former University of Oregon player, who now plays in the Canadian Football League, had nothing but praise for the local students they worked with.
