HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Two of Hawaii’s best are ready to perform on the biggest stage high school football has to offer.
Saint Louis defensive lineman and state defensive player of the year Fa’atui Tuitele and Kahuku’s Enokk Vimahi are in Texas set to participate in the Army All American game tomorrow on NBC.
Tuitele and Vimahi are just the latest players to carry on the torch of great Polynesian players now taking over college football.
Tuitele a Washington Huskies commit is excited to represent Hawaii and his family.
" It is an unreal experience," said Tuitele. “It’s an honor to represent my family and Saint Louis while going against the top players in the nation.”
The All-American Bowl selects the top prep football talent from around the country, many of the players from this game will play at the premier programs in college football.
While many of the players in this game have already committed to where they will play college football next season Vimahi is still undecided.
All of his focus still remains on the game this Saturday and putting on a good performance for himself and his family.
“Coming from Hawaii it’s a big honor,” said Vimahi. “Not a lot of people from Hawaii have this opportunity so to have us both here means a lot.”
The All-American Bowl will air on NBC at 8:00 a.m. Hawaii time.
