Te'o, a Punahou alum, made the announcement at Sunday night's Lott IMPACT Trophy dinner in Newport Beach, Calif., according to a release issued by the school.

Te'o leads the team with 115 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and 41/2 sacks heading into the Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 29 against Florida State. He was a finalist for the Butkus Award and Lott Trophy this year.

Paterno fractures pelvis

Joe Paterno fractured his pelvis again following a fall at his home but will not need surgery, a person close to the family told the Associated Press on Sunday.

The former Penn State football coach was expected to make a full recovery after slipping Saturday and was admitted to the hospital the next day, the person added. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Paterno, who turns 85 on Dec. 21, is also undergoing radiation and chemotherapy for what his family has said is a treatable form of lung cancer. Son Scott Paterno has said doctors are optimistic about a full recovery from the illness.

Paterno was fired last month in the aftermath of child sex-abuse charges against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who maintains his innocence.
