Here’s the December 9th quote according to the LA Times.
The 2012 season was a Manti Te’o story book, although not all of the chapters were positive. On Sept. 12, within hours, he was given news that his grandmother in Hawaii and his girlfriend at Stanford had died, the latter after a battle with cancer.
He said girlfriend Lennay Kekau “made me promise, when it happened, that I would stay and play,” Te’o said Sunday night.
