Tanoa Bowl Is Ready to Go For Saturday and It’s On!

At 12:30 PM in Auburn, Washington The Tanoa Bowl Classic will being with a Kick Off by Team Oregon who will take on Team Alaska in a High school football All Star Game.  This is the first of two games.

In the second game set to start at 4:30 PM Team Utah will take on Team Washington in a loaded battle as well.

Both games are the result of Ultimate Edge Sports being able to continue the Tanoa Bowl into its second year and build momentum on last years inaugural game which was between Washington and Alaska.  Coach Simi Strickland along with others has been driven to build a showcase event for kids who finished high in their respective States but who have been under the radar for recruitment.  With 45 days left to signing day these two games will in fact be the #1 place that any coach or program could find kids for the 2012 Class.

“We are building family and brotherhood with our Polynesian roots and have opened our arms to all of our brothers to come and celebrate,”  said Strickland,  “This is their chance to showcase what they can do on the field and to build new friendships and brotherhoods.  Once they come join our Tanoa Family they will always have a place with us here.”

The event is not joke.  The talent here is as good as we have seen all year.  In fact all four States are loaded with collegiate kids; some have offers and are committed but for most they have very little or nothing firm at all.

“We came to the game last year and walked away realizing that this was a perfect fit.  A missing link to the problem we face every year of too many good kids in the Western and Northwester States going without,” said Rivals.com NW analyst Dirk Knudsen who is helping cover the entire event and who sent the word out to every Coach in the Nation.

“The Teams are loaded.  Really loaded and to help the kids out and give back to the communities we took it upon ourselves to help in two ways working with Ultimate Edge Sports.  First we helped coordinate with WashingtonSportsNetwork.com a live broadcast with video and analysis of both games over the web.  That will allow everyone at home to support these boys.  But it will also allow coaches far and near a chance to watch too,” said Knudsen.

But there was a second thing needed.  “After Simi arranged for the coverage we dug deep for the kids to obtain the list of every college coach in the Nation and have sent out over 3,300 invitations to them.  They will be able to watch for free two great games live and in rebroadcast for the next few months.  Over 130 top kids are here most of them Seniors and most of them All State or All Region players.  The response has been overwhelming.”

Haka Wars

At the Tanoa Bowl banquets each Team did a Haka or a Chant to show their spirit and NWPR was there to catch it all.  But who won this one?

Team Alaska Cheer

Team Oregon Haka

That should do it.  Look for action interviews and lots of top stories and analysis too!  This is going to be interesting to see if Oregon who had 3 total practices but are very talented can man up and beat a tough and polished Alaska Squad.

For Washington they had a similar situation and will face a loaded team as well in the machine that is Team Utah!

 

It’s On Now!  Be there!
