Anton Charles Palepoi (born January 19, 1978) is a former American football defensive end of Samoan descent. He played five seasons in the National Football League, most notably with the Seattle Seahawks (2002–2004).
Palepoi attended high school at Hunter High School in West Valley City, Utah where he played basketball and football for the Wolverines. Taking the junior college route, he went on to attend Dixie College, where he was named Western States Football League Most Valuable Player in 1999 after leading the Red Storm to an appearance in the junior college national championship game.
Recruited by Ken Niumatalolo, he chose Nevada–Las Vegas over Utah. Palepoi was an All-Mountain West Conference selection in both of his years at UNLV, despite having his senior season cut short to only six games.
Despite being projected as an undrafted free agent, Palepoi was selected in the second round, 60th overall, by the Seattle Seahawks. He was the highest selected player from UNLV since Ickey Woods in 1988.
