There's a few Samoans and NZ born lads, but the only one (other than Pettybourne and the Paulos) who I can find to be definitely of American Samoan descent is Bureta Faraimo:-

Faraimo, who has earned comparisons to Auckland Warriors champion Manu Vatuvei, hopes to represent the US at the World Cup if only he can find the paperwork that shows his father was born on Swains Island, a coconut plantation with a population of 17 which is nominally part of American Samoa.
