Isaac Seumalo (born October 29, 1993) is an American football guard and center for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League. He played college football at Oregon State University.

High school career[edit]

A native of Corvallis, Oregon, Seumalo attended Corvallis High School, where he was an 5A First Team All-State as an offensive and defensive lineman as a junior and senior. He had transferred there from Santiam Christian School, where he played his freshman and sophomore years. Regarded as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Seumalo was listed as the No. 3 offensive guard prospect in his class.[1] He chose Oregon State, where his father Joe Seumalo worked as defensive line coach, over offers from Oregon, Stanford, and Southern California.[2] Seumalo had been working out in the summer on Oregon State's campus.[3]

College career[edit]

In his first season at Oregon State, Seumalo became the first true freshman to start at center since Roger Levasa in 1978,[4] appeared in all 13 games and earned Freshman All-American honors by College Football News and CBSSports.com,[5][6] as well as honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors. Seumalo was particularly praised for his performance against reigning Pac-12 Defensive Lineman of the Year Star Lotulelei, in a victory over the Utah Utes.[7][8]

In 2018, Seumalo entered the season as the backup left guard behind Stefen Wisniewski. He was named the starter in Week 5 and started the next nine games before being sidelined the final three weeks of the regular season with a pectoral injury.

On March 4, 2019, Seumalo signed a three-year contract extension with the Eagles through the 2022 season.[12]
