5 Memorable Latter-day Saints on TV Game Shows


4. LDS Football Player Al Harrington, who appeared on To Tell the Truth


Al Harrington was the first high school All-American football player to come out of Hawaii. Because pro football players didn’t make as much money then as they do now, Harrington returned to Hawaii after graduating from Stanford in 1958 to become a Polynesian dancer—which led to his appearance on the popular game show To Tell The Truth. He went on to become a television actor and is best known for his role as Detective Ben Kokua on the hit show Hawaii Five-O.
