When the Cardinals take the field, one of the players who’ll have a big role in their success is offensive lineman Mike Iupati.

In addition to his team’s success, Iupati was also named the first ever Polynesian Pro Football Player of the Year. There are a number of players of Polynesian heritage in the NFL. A new movie looks at that and how many young men in that community dream of playing pro football.

Tony Vainuku is the director of the film called “In Football We Trust.”
