They also give out a college athlete of the year award. Last year it went to former Colorado and Hawai'i player David Veikune. This year's award winner was Hawai'i track star Annett Wichmann.
Even though the season is over, it's still a busy time for Fehoko, who is practicing this week for the 2009 Hawaii/Polynesia-Mainland Bowl. The game is this Saturday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. There are three players from the Northwest region playing on the Mainland roster - OL Colin Porter from Redmond, Wash.; LB Anthony DeMatteo from Issaquah (Wash.) Skyline; and ATH Kenneth Acker from Portland (Ore.) Grant.
The business didn't stop Washington defensive line coach Johnny Nansen from stopping by Farrington during an assembly honoring Fehoko for his inclusion in the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. According to Fehoko, the UW coaches will have an in-home with him next week, and Huskies Head Coach Steve Sarkisian and Linebackers Coach Mike Cox are also expected to have an in-home visit sometime in January.
The coaches from Texas Tech, who know the Fehokos well because they have a son Sam who is currently a linebacker in Lubbock, will be in for a visit on Thursday.
