The 2018 Polynesian Bowl has its first quarterback from Hawaii with the announcement tonight that Saint Louis’ Chevan Cordeiro has been invited to the game.
Cordeiro, who is 6 feet and 175 pounds, is currently fourth on Oahu among Division I quarterbacks with 1,303 passing yards with 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions.
Completing 65 percent of his passes, Cordeiro had the game of his life last Saturday against Narbonne (Calif.), throwing for a career-high 393 yards and seven touchdowns in a 56-50 win. Only Tua Tagovailoa, Timmy Chang, Darnell Arceneaux and Jeremy Higgins have thrown for more yards in a Saint Louis uniform.
Cordeiro is in his first year as the full-time starter and has undefeated Saint Louis ranked as the unanimous No. 1 team in the state.
A total of 16 players from Hawaii have been selected to the all-star game scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018.
The next announcement will be made at Noon next Thursday here at Hawaii Prep World.
