The order of Navajo were once great and mighty warriors. Feared for their speed and ruthlessness in battle, and determination to never give up. But those days are long since gone and past. As modern times have ticked, those days of glory have faded like wet paper in the sun.
Born Native American Indian Reservation in Acoma, NM, Apiatan, or Apia to his friends, always had a love for team sports. Baseball, soccer, and football were fun, but basketball was a sport that really took hold of Apia. With little to do in the dirty reservation town, the young buffalo would spend hours with the roundball and his family’s rusting driveway backboards, imaging himself as if he was the next Buck Hopper or John Stoat ready to make his name in the FBA. Only when the young Apia began to play competitively, in streetball pick-up games, did people realize the buffalo was a born natural. That regularly schooling of older boys spread whispers to the local high school, where the head coach quickly napped him up. A Junior year state title and senior all-state award later, the young buffalo started to gain attention towards the next step, college.
Apia received scholarship offers from some the national’s premier college universities, but the water buffalo turned many of them down, as he wanted to stay humble and local, determined not to stray too far from the tribe, returning every weekend to help tend to the local tribe duties and rituals. Small school or not, Apia was a big fish in a little pond at New Mexico Predatorial & Technical , Taking his team to a Division 2 final four and earning himself a small trophy room worth of accolades and awards.
Ending his senior year, Apia was planning to return back to his tribe, til the FBA came knocking.
Joining the FBA would mean leaving everything he had behind at the reservation, his friends and his family, but with a heavy heart and a determined soul Apia took the plunge. He wanted to show the world that forgotten warrior spirit that these lands once stood for. And he would do it in the FBA.
