Geez' Makani you out done yourself with this one. Wow! I didn't know there were so many, I have yet to know the names of, lol. I probably only heard of half the names on your long list, but its all good. It's impossible to know all the Poly's playing the game. Thanks for the post! I will try to decipher it later, I see a video idea forming with your list here. Need to ponder over it a bit, probably brainstorm some stuff while I'm at church later today, hehe... Anyways, great All Star Football Team!

P.S. I just happened to come across the most intriguing article to say the least. I never in my life seen a 12 year old Football player being recruiting. He is in middle school!! lol. Check it out laters and tell me your opinion, if this is the growing trend, wow!
