JPS Classic: NorCal 28, American Samoa 6

In the second annual Junior Prep Sports classic American Samoa didn’t fare as well as last year where we defeated their seniors.

However, we didn’t go scoreless either.  Norcal vs AS

Ramos Fano found Ralph Taufasau inside the redone to set up a touch down n a quarterback draw.

That was American Samoa’s loan score of the game where the final score was Norcal 28 to American Samoa’s 6.

Defensive coorindator Okland Salavea said tackling was an issue for American Samoa in giving up some many long yardage runs that resulted in Touch Downs.

NorCal vs AS startThe silver lining of this trip regardless of wins and losses is the exposure that American Samoa gets to off island recruiters. Remember last year it was Cheyenne Sanitoa who picked up an offer from the University of Hawaii after posting interceptions against a game we ended up losing against Hawaii.

This year it’s Samoana’s Ralph Taufaasau, Vimoto Mageo and Fagaitua’s Tui Ah Chong who have caught the eye of Keiki Misikipeka of Garden City State University.

So to close out football on this update, our 8th graders and 12th graders face off against Hawaii on Saturday in their respective divisions.
