Tanoa Bowl Classic football event — Dec. 31

Here is a press release that was sent in about the Tanoa Bowl Classic, scheduled for Dec. 31 at Auburn Memorial Stadium, featuring football players from Washington, Utah, Oregon and Alaska.

One of the best High School Football Bowl events in the nation in 2011 promises to be the Tanoa Bowl Classic which will be held Dec. 31 at Auburn Memorial Stadium.

This year’s events features two great games with 130 of the best players in the Western United States. Washington, Utah, Alaska, and Oregon are all sending teams loaded with top high-school talent to the Tanoa Bowl. By definition, the Tanoa Bowl is a platform to showcase top student athletes and their achievements on and off the field. It is also a place to recognize the hard work and dedication these players are making as positive role models both in their community and for the up-and-coming generation.

The Tanoa Bowl has its roots in Polynesian traditions and culture. A good portion of the rosters for these teams will be of Polynesian descent and represent the best of their roots. But the event is open to all in the Spirit of Polynesia and all four states are bringing a contingent of kids, who are not only the best of their communities, but who also have the potential to play football at the collegiate level.

The Tanoa Bowl features a Media Day on the 30th of December from 3:30-5 p.m. at Emerald Downs in Auburn, followed by a feast put on for the teams by the Bowl Organization.

Team Oregon is Playing Team Alaska at noon and Team Washington is playing Team Utah at 4 p.m. Both games are being held at Auburn Memorial Stadium and tickets will be available at the gate.
