A third Kahuku football player has been invited to the 2018 Polynesian Bowl with the selection of linebacker Fatu Atuaia.
Atuaia, who is 6 feet and 225 pounds, has been a force in the middle of the Kahuku defense. In a 42-7 win over Campbell in the OIA semifinals, Atuaia had four tackles for loss, three sacks and an interception — all in the first half.
Atuaia joins running back Enoch Nawahine and defensive end Samson Reed as Red Raiders who have been selected to the high school football all-star game scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018 at Aloha Stadium.
Kahuku will play Saint Louis for the Open Division state championship on Saturday night.
