“As a native Hawaiian, it is an honor to participate in the Polynesian Football Classic,” said Chandler head football coach Shaun Aguano. “The Classic has quickly become one of the premier high school football events in the country.”
“Polynesians have been an integral part of our football program for many years,” said Carson Colts head football coach Arnold Ale. “We’re honored to be included with so many other great teams in this year’s Classic.”
