Mokiao-Atimalala is the 13th player currently enrolled in high school in Hawaii selected to the game, joining Saint Louis linebackers Jordan Botelho and Nick Herbig and defensive tackle Stanley McKenzie, Punahou defensive back Alaka’i Gilman and offensive lineman Solatoa Moea’i, Saint Louis receivers Roman Wilson and Matt Sykes, Kahuku offensive lineman Micah Soliai-Howlett, Mililani defensive end Shane Kady , Farrington offensive lineman Faaope Laloulu, Waipahu running back Alfred Failauga and Kapolei defensive end Maceal Afaese.

Two more players from Hawaii will be announced as Polynesian Bowl All-Stars next Thursday on Hawaii Prep World.

The 2020 Polynesian Bowl will take place Saturday, Jan. 18, at Aloha Stadium featuring 100 of the best high school football players in the country. The majority of the players will be of Polynesian ancestry.
