Senior tight end Sione Tuifua of Utqiagvik has never lost a season-opening game in his four years with the Morningside University football team.

This time he got into the scoring act in a 63-7 win over Concordia with a touchdown in the third quarter of the NAIA matchup in Sioux City, Iowa.

Tuifua caught two passes for 8 yards, including a 3-yard touchdown grab on the first drive of the second half to make it 42-0.

Morningside has won 33 of 34 games with the Alaskan on the field, including two NAIA titles.

Tuifua, of Barrow High fame, has racked up 26 receptions for 238 yards and four touchdowns in his career.

One of those scores came in the 2019 national title game.
