Saint Louis safety Isaiah Tufaga, a second-team All-State selection as a junior, is the latest addition to the 2018 Polynesian Bowl scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018 at Aloha Stadium.
Tufaga, who is 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, is the seventh Hawaii high school senior selected to the annual all-star football game.
The Laie native has helped the top-ranked Crusaders start the season 2-0 and allow just one touchdown heading into their ILH opener on Friday night against No. 5 Kamehameha at Aloha Stadium.
Tufaga is one of the top uncommitted seniors in the state with an offer sheet that includes Fresno State, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon State, UNLV, Utah State and Vanderbilt.
He joins WR Justin Genovia (‘Iolani), LB Rocky Savea (Kapolei), DE Samson Reed (Kahuku), DE Kukea Emmsley (Kapolei), LB Kana’i Mauga (Waianae) and OL Alama Uluave (Punahou) as players representing Hawaii in the Polynesian Bowl.
Another 23 players from Hawaii will be selected over the next 12 weeks, including one tonight on the Season 5 premiere of Cover 2: Hawaii High School Football Weekly at 9:30 p.m. on KHON2.
