There's another member of the Polamalu football family? Yes, and he's playing high school football in the state of Pennsylvania.

Meet Maika Polamalu, a junior RB/LB at Pottsgrove High School (northwest of Philly) and cousin of Steeler safety Troy Polamalu. Maika was recently the subject of a KDKA TV feature, as the 6-foot, 200-pounder has become quite the hot prospect on the college recruiting trail.

With an offer to Penn State in hand, Polamalu was one of many high schoolers to take in the recent Pitt-Notre Dame game, which worked out well for the home team. So far, the only offer Polamalu has received outside of Penn State has been Villanova, but he's also garnered interest from Clemson, Syracuse, UCLA, and West Virginia.

As a sophomore, Polamalu carried the ball 185 times for 1,322 yards (7.15 YPC) and 18 touchdowns, while catching 11 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns. He is listed by as a four-star recruit.

It's going to be unfair to this kid to be compared to one of the greatest defenders to ever play the game, but on the other hand, it might motivate him to make a name for himself. And it certainly looks like he's on the right track so far.
