The scholarship offers have been rolling in for Kapolei offensive lineman Toleafoa “Sean” Auwae.
He’s going to be a senior in the fall, and he finished his junior season with the Hurricanes last fall alongside his brother on the line, Viliamu Auwae, who is going to play for Utah State next fall.
“I say I’m more nasty and tougher on the field (than Viliamu), haha,” Sean Auwae wrote via email to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and Hawaii Prep World on Tuesday. “And he’s taller, but I’m bigger. Our relationship is very close. Been together forever. Always butting heads, but we always got each other’s back.”
Auwae has been offered by Texas Tech, Washington State and San Diego State.
“I got (the offer from) Texas Tech right after my performance (at the Nike Football Opening Regionals camp on Monday). Then came Wazzu. They said I gave a real good performance and tore it up. I went there with the mentality to not lose and show people a kid with no scholarship can still play ball. I actually pancaked a five-star defensive tackle from Arizona twice.”
Auwae’s size is hard to get a grasp on if you look at the various recruiting websites. He’s anywhere from 6-foot-4 to 6-foot-6 and in the 280- to 300-pound range. We here at Hawaii Prep World will try to nail it down next time we contact him.
