A horde of college coaches will be on hand to watch many of Southern California's top prep football players participate in the fourth annual All Islands Get Along (AIGA) football clinic and combine this Saturday at the Carson High baseball and softball fields, with registration starting at 8 a.m.

Coaches from universities such as Arizona, Arizona State, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon State, UCLA, USC and Washington are among those who have made commitments to attend the event, according to AIGA president Titus Tuiasosopo, a former head coach at Centennial High and assistant coach at Paramount High.

Among the instructors at the speed camp will be Quincy Watts, a 1992 Olympic Gold medalist in the 400 meters, former USC receiver Erik Affholter and former California running back Russell White. Instructors in the positional drills include Oakland Raiders quarterback Marques Tuiasosopo and USC safety Troy Polamalu.

According to Titus Tuiasosopo, a number of the area's top prospects are expected to attend the event, including Banning running backs Patrick Perry and A.J. Tuitele, Carson defensive tackle Matt Malele and receiver Greg Chatman, Dominguez linebacker Jonathan Polk and receiver Anthony Wheat, and the Poly trio of offensive guard Kevin Brown, quarterback Leon Jackson and defensive end Junior Lemauu.

All proceeds from this clinic/com- bine will go to support the AIGA foundation. Interested participants, volunteers, sponsors and vendors should contact George Malauulu.
