    Oceanside names amphitheatre, community center after Seau

    Junior Seau never forgot where he came from, and now where he came from will never forget him.

    At a tribute held Saturday in connection with the annual Samoan Cultural Celebration, Oceanside dedicated the local amphitheatre and community center to Seau, who died on May 2.

    Seau’s sister, Annette Seau So-oto, told NBC 7 that the family is “overwhelmed” by the community’s love for Junior.

    I wish my brother was here to see,” she said. “He’s looking down on us right now, and he’s very thrilled. The family is overwhelmed and appreciates the thought, gesture, the city has put upon Oceanside; being able to recognize my brother and have respect.”

    Hundred of fans reportedly showed up for the dedication for Seau, an Oceanside native who became a perennial Pro Bowler at linebacker for the nearby Chargers.
