Sports and Military Service as routes to college for Pacific Islanders

Separate articles on the establishment of a Polynesian football hall of fame and a documentary on military service among Micronesians may not seem like they have much to do with each other, but I was struck by the common thread of higher education.  In both cases, these story highlighted how each thing was an important path to college.  

I would be interested in statistics on how many Pacific Islanders feel that college sports or military service was their entree avenue to pursue a diploma, given that these are two areas where Pacific Islanders are much more visible -- please let us know if you've seen any data on that!  

Here are links to the articles:
