“The Polynesian College Football Player of the Year award showcases the immense talent of our Polynesian student-athletes in college football today,” Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Chairman Jesse Sapolu said in a press release. “The award has quickly become one of the most prestigious in all of college football.”
