HS: Graduated from Federal Way HS in 2012. Earned first team 4A All-State honors as an defensive lineman from Associated Press as selected by sportswriters and broadcasters. He was also a first team All-State selection as a linebacker on teams chosen by both the Seattle Times and Tacoma News Tribune. Named by the Seattle Times as a “Red Chip” selection as one of the top 27 prospects in the state of Washington. He was also a member of the Seattle Times “Star Times” All-Area team and was also selected to the Tacoma News Tribune All-Area squad. Also selected to Ron Siegel’s pre-season All-State team (seniors only). He was listed as a 3-star recruit by ESPN, and was ranked as the 26th-best inside linebacker nationally and the ninth-best prospect in Washington. Pulu’s senior season was cut short when he injured his ankle in a 41-14 State 4A Playoffs play-in game victory against Snohomish. Federal Way went on to lose in the first round to Eastlake 21-11 and end its season with a 10-1 record. Pulu had a spectacular year to that point, leading Federal Way in tackles for the second-straight season and guiding a defense that held teams to two touchdowns or less seven times. The Eagles allowed just 64.2 yards rushing per game (2.5 per play) in the regular season, as they advanced to the state playoffs for only the second time since 1976 and hosted their first state playoff game since 1976. Pulu was the Linebacker of the Year in the South Puget Sound League 4A South Division. He made a team-high 61 tackles in the regular season, including 50 solo stops, and had a high game of 10 1/2. During his junior season, Pulu led Federal Way in tackles with 65 1/2 on the season, including 54 solo tackles. His best game came during a loss to Jefferson when he tallied 15 1/2 tackles. He also finished with 10 1/2 tackles and two sacks during a loss to Curtis. He was selected by the league’s coaches as a second team All-SPSL 4A South Division selection at linebacker. Federal Way finished 4-6 in 2010, meaning they improved by six victories when Pulu was a senior. His Eagle teammates D’londo Tucker (’13) and Albert Havili (’13) also graduated from Federal Way, as well as his brother Andru Pulu (’09).
Personal: Born 2/20/94 in Federal Way, Wash. Intends on majoring in education. His parents are Logo and Ana Pulu. His brother, Andru, also plays for the Eagles after graduating from Federal Way High School in 2009 and transferring from the University of Washington. Name is pronounced “pooh-lou.”
