Daniel Heimuli and Noa Ngalu were a defensive tandem that contributed greatly to the Menlo-Atherton football team winning a state championship. Now they will continue to work together as teammates in college at the University of Washington.

Heimuli made his much-anticipated announcement Wednesday at the M-A signing day ceremony in the school’s gym. He sat at a table with the school’s other college-bound senior athletes and thanked the teachers, teammates and family members who helped him along the way to his current position as a highly coveted linebacking prospect with a wealth of possible college destinations to choose from.
