Local flavor to Samoa Bowl
Shiloah Te'o of Kahuku, Siu Tafuna of Punahou and Tui Tuiasosopo of Saint Louis are among the local prep standouts who will depart today for the Samoa Bowl. The team, coached by former Red Raiders coach Siuaki Livai, will play a Samoa all-star team on Tuesday.
The popularity of the annual event extended to the mainland, but Livai had no room for extra players this time.
"We have 56 players. It's supposed to be 40," the former Kahuku coach said. "We had 100- plus apply."
