PTP Clinic Ends With A Bang Rivals Review Of The 2014 Finale

Prime Time Polynesian Linemen Camp Report


Brian Goad

June 21, 2014


Having attended so many camps over the years, you expect the same o' same o'. Boy was I surprised! Prime Time Polynesian is the ultimate offensive line and defensive line camp. I arrived at 9:00 a.m. and who did I see? - San Diego Charger linebacker Manti Te'o leaving after working out with Coach Pen.

Last Saturday was the final day of the PTP clinic that began in January. The great thing from all present was their progression from January till today. It was celebrated with hamburgers and hot-dogs in the end provided by the PTP Family.

If you have not attended a PTP training session you are missing out. The atmosphere is high energy, hard work, and respect of one's peers and coaches alike.

You do not have to be Polynesian to attend this camp. What you do have to be is a hard worker that respects the player in front of him and embraces him as family no matter the outcome!

This is the only way each individual can reach his full potential! The coaches do an outstanding job of matching up each player with the appropriate player. This guarantees the progression to keep advancing for each player.

Up-and-coming athletes were all around. I will name a few per their school:

Corona Centennial - Isaac Flores, Noah Anthony, and Siu Anderson (all Sophomores)
Upland - Sianie Malere, Sophomore
St. John Bosco - Tavita Moe, Sophomore.
Kearny, San Diego - Saia Saihsao, Junior.
Santiago - Brandon Lang.

The PTP alumni showed up today and cooked and helped with the camp - Viane Talamaivao, USC;Christian Garcia, UCLA; Cameron Hunt, Oregon; and Kammy Delp, Oregon State.

Per my conversation with the coaches today, PTP will be running some camps in July. The following locations were mentioned: La Mirada, High Desert, San Diego, & Los Angeles. Check the website for a time and location near you. That's primetimepolynesian.com

By ERIC SONDHEIMER

One of the fastest rising college prospects in Southern California is Servite offensive lineman Clayton Johnston, who picked up an offer from USC on Saturday after attending a camp, Coach A.J. Gass said.

I remember being at Servite when he was a freshman and then Coach Troy Thomas predicted big things for Johnston, who has grown to 6 feet 6, 280 pounds.

2014 Off Season Conditioning Opens February 1, 2014

PTP Alumni Cameron Hunt First To Play As True Freshmen For Oregon In 20 Years

Freshmen Tyner, Hunt Help Fuel Run Game


By Rob Moseley

Editor GoDucks.com

Courtesy: GoDucks.com

Release: 10/20/2013


 Two mainstays of the Oregon offense, junior running back De’Anthony Thomas and junior right tackle Jake Fisher, watched Saturday’s game against Washington State from the sideline. They were in uniform, but their helmets were safely stowed away for much of the evening, lest they have the impulse to enter the game against team orders.


Thomas and Fisher are two of the biggest reasons for the Ducks’ success in the run game the last three years. They were spelled Saturday in part by two true freshmen. And you hardly could have noticed a difference, during Oregon's 62-38 victory.


At right tackle, Cameron Hunt started the game, and rotated with Everett Benyard. Hunt is believed to be the first true freshman starter on the UO offensive line since Lee Gundy in 1997.


And in the backfield, Thomas Tyner nearly enjoyed his first career 100-yard game, getting to 101 yards and two touchdowns on six carries, before losing two yards on his seventh and final carry of the night.


“With De’Anthony being out and me having to step up, it’s a huge opportunity,” Tyner said after the fourth straight game in which Thomas didn’t take an offensive snap, due to an ankle injury. “Not a lot of freshmen get a chance like this.”


Sophomore Byron Marshall continued to get the bulk of the work in Thomas’ place, and he had a career night Saturday. Marshall ran 21 times for 192 yards and three touchdowns.


Perhaps the most revealing stat was a zero – the number of yards lost by Marshall on Saturday. Given the wealth of experience he’s gained the last four weeks, the hesitancy of a younger runner is all but gone.


“I’m just having fun,” Marshall said. “Finally putting my head down, letting loose and having fun.”


Thomas said after the game he was “just being on the safe side, that’s all.” He predicted he’ll return to action next week against UCLA.


In the meantime, Thomas said, “I feel like our guys can handle it.”


Can they ever. In four games since Thomas’ injury, the duo of Marshall and Tyner has averaged 31 carries for 207 yards, with 11 total touchdowns.


“You can’t put into words how important it is for the guys to get playing time, and in a situation where it’s important,” running backs coach Gary Campbell said. “They’re beginning to realize how good they can be.”


Indeed, the lessons provided by the last month’s playing time are both encouraging and revealing. They’ve taught Tyner he can excel at this level, but also showed him areas where he can improve, such as balance; in a couple instances Saturday, he lost his footing with minimal contact from the defense.


Those and other elements will continue to be a focus for Tyner in practice.


“If I keep working on those, it’ll add up to where I want to be,” he said.


Film review will be revealing in Hunt’s case. Offensive coordinator Scott Frost mostly withheld judgment on the freshman’s starting debut on the offensive line until watching film, figuring there will be some moments to applaud, and others to clean up.


Hunt said he found out in warmups Saturday he’d be starting in place of Fisher. Oregon’s veterans said the freshman performed well overall.


Frost may have needed to watch film to grade Hunt’s performance, but he had enough confidence to call plays that put the freshman in the spotlight against the Cougars.  Marshall’s first-quarter touchdown was opened up by blocks from Hunt and Mana Greig, and Tyner ran behind Hunt on another one-yard score, in the second quarter.


“If you mess up, that’s your butt on the line,” Hunt said. “But our game plan was to pound the rock, and it worked out well.”


It did, despite the absence of two stalwarts on offense for Oregon, and with two true freshmen playing big roles in their absence.

Congratulations To Viane Talamaivao Who Will Be Playing In The USA Army All American

FOOTBALL: Centennial’s Talamaivao To Receive Army All-American Jersey


BY ERIC-PAUL JOHNSON 

NOVEMBER 6, 2013


Corona Centennial football standout Viane Talamaivao will receive his jersey for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl during a ceremony prior to the Huskies regular-season finale against Corona on Nov. 7.

Talamaivao, a 6-foot-3, 315-pound offensive lineman, will be the second player from Centennial to participate in the prestigious showcase. Vontaze Burfict, who is tied for the NFL lead with 90 tackles in his second season with the Bengals, played in the game in 2009. Huskies coach Matt Logan was the West’s offensive coordinator that season, as well.

The ceremony Thursday at 6:40 p.m. is part of a selection tour by the game’s organizers.

The U.S. Army All-American Bowl features many top high school players in the nation. Talamaivao, committed to Alabama, is rated a four-star lineman by recruiting experts. The All-America Bowl will be played Jan. 4, 2014 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

Other players from the Inland area who have played in past All-American Bowls include Kylie Fitts (Redlands East Valley, 2013), Su’a Cravens (Vista Murrieta, 2013), Ronald Powell (Moreno Valley Rancho Verde, 2010), Michael Philipp (San Bernardino Arroyo Valley, 2009), Allen Bradford (Colton, 2006) and Rodney Picou (Moreno Valley Canyon Springs, 2005).

Prime Time Polynesian Pumps Out Top Players


By Brian Swinney

July 22, 2013

3:51 PM


Southern California based Prime Time Polynesian Camps are blowing up out West and are run by a former Utah player


Schools are always looking for a leg up in recruiting, and camps are a great way for coaching staffs to develop relationships with players and camp coordinators that are often influential in a recruit's decision. One of the fastest rising camps in the country is Prime Time Polynesian, being run for by former Utah player Pene Talamaivao, to fill a need on the camp circuit.

"We started PTP two years ago, covering skills for offensive and defensive linemen, linebackers and tight ends. We cater camps to them, since they're often neglected."

Currently based out of Corona, California, one of the hotbeds for Southern California recruits, Prime Time Polynesian has turned into the top camp for turning out linemen in the West recently.

"So far we've produced 16 MVPs with guys like JoJo Mathis, Christian Garcia, Viane Talamaivao, Damien Mama, Austin Maloata, Cameron Hunt, Ainuu Taua, and Kammy Delp."

The training program that Talamaivao developed years ago while out in the Beehive State, is the one he uses today and has produced tremendous results.

"Using the Nemesis Elite program that I wrote in Utah, I was training University of Utah football athletes to test run my program. It was hit with guys like Kepa Gaison, Kenape Eliapo, Aiona Key, Matt Martinez, and Sealver Siliga to name a few who did the program, so I took it to Mt. SAC JC and they use the program in 2007, winning national titles with it."

The workout developed by Talamaivao has become a must for any west coast recruit.

"Prime Time Polynesian uses the Nemesis Workout. PTP became one of the fastest and high energy camps for the big guys in Southern California. We are producing a large class of lineman throughout So Cal and will be hitting skill players in 2014. We are headed in the right direction and hopefully we can get all our kids to college."

Having returned to their roots in 2013 with a Utah camp in June, PTP will be headed back this way next year, and is continuing to expand all over the west coast.

"Developing and training is the core of our system and we look to expand beyond California. We did Utah in June, but are also looking to hit the Bay Area and Las Vegas."

The long term goal is for Prime Time Polynesian is to host and train the top players not only out west, but across the country.

"We want the best of the best developed and trained by us, and are in talks with several division 1 schools wanting to take full advantage of our camps."

Good Luck to our PTP Trainees Headed To Oregon's 
"The Opening 2013"

Congratulations PTP Trainee Kammy Delp of Diamond Ranch H.S. Oakland NFTC MVP 
O-Line ~ Headed To "The Opening 2013"

The Nike Football Training Camp held in the Bay Area of San Francisco and Oakland has traditionally been loaded with talent and the 2013 edition was no exception.

Held at Laney College in Oakland, Sunday’s NFTC saw 350 top high school prospects from 16 states and Canada work out and this year’s version was as strong as expected going into the camp.

The Oakland NFTC was the 11th of the 13 on the 2013 tour with Columbus, Ohio and Eugene, Ore. remaining.

Oakland NFTC All-Camp Team 


Updated: May 24, 2013


OL: Kammy Delp, 6-2 ½, 288, Diamond Ranch (Pomona, Calif.)
Results: 5.64 40, 5.03 SH, 42.5′ PB, 23″ VJ, 81.42 SPARQ
Breakdown: The Oakland NFTC OL MVP has exactly what you’re looking for in a guard, good strength and knee bend, quick feet, and a nasty attitude. A two-way player for Diamond Ranch, Delp plays guard with a defensive linemen’s mentality, but impressed the NFTC Coaches with his ability to stay patient. Has been a bit of a late-bloomer recruiting wise, with offers pouring in recently from around the Pac-12. While some of his offers have come as a 3-technique, Delp’s NFTC performance seemed to cement his future on the offensive line, and also earned him an invite to The Opening.

Ainuu Taua, Damien Mama, Viane Talamaivao received invites To "The Opening 2013" In Beaverton, Oregon!

Five more get invites to The Opening


Updated: March 12, 2013


The top 150 prospects in the nation, who are evaluated by Student Sports staff at Nike Football Training Camps and/or Nike Football SPARQ Combines, are invited for the four day event that will take place this July.


*Damien Mama
Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco
6-4, 352 OL
The Nike Camp OL MVP, Mama is considered one of the top line prospects in the nation and has offers from major powers such as Alabama, Notre Dame, Nebraska and, just in the last 48 hours, USC and UCLA.


* Viane Talamaivao
Corona (Calif.) Centennial
6-2, 316 OL
Despite fracturing his foot last October and missing the rest of his junior season, Talamaivao is known nationally as one of the top line prospects in the West. His offer list is highlighted by Alabama and Ole Miss out of state and Arizona, BYU, Colorado, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State in the West.

Says Huber, “I try to catch tape on all of these guys before the camp, and Viane is just an absolute war daddy on tape.  He’s got unbelievably quick feet and you could see that throughout all of the SPARQ training.  When he gets into one on ones, his punch is almost unfair.  If the defensive linemen gets within striking range, the rep is over.  In one-on-ones he got out there first, won all four reps and was probably the most impressive in terms of just stopping the defensive linemen in their tracks.”


* Ainuu Taua
Lompoc, Calif.
6-0, 295 DL
Taua, who was the Nike Camp DL MVP, led the Braves to a 12-1 mark last season as he recorded seven sacks and plugged the middle.  A Jr. All-State selection, he has offers from Arizona, Cal, UCLA, Utah, Washington, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss.

“Taua probably could have come in and bull rushed his way to the MVP Award, he’s that powerful,” adds Huber.  “Instead, he worked hard with Chuck Wiley and Kennard to develop his pass rush moves and was untouchable when it came time for one-on-ones.  He’ll have a chance to work on those moves even more at The Opening.”

PTP Trainee Damien Mama Of 
St. John Bosco H.S. 2013 NFTC Underclassman MVP

MAMA IS A MAN AMONG BOYS  


March 10, 2013

By Sean Ceglinsky


At 6-5 and 340 pounds, Damien Mama is all too familiar with how it feels to stick out in crowd. It was different story at the Los Angeles NFTC, however. The junior offensive lineman from Bellflower (CA) St. John Bosco was the center of attention for the right reasons this time.

One of the country's more promising prospects, Mama looked the part. And played the part. The end result was an MVP award at his position despite competition from Viane Talamaivao of Corona (CA) Centennial and USC commit Toa Lobendahn of Lakewood (CA) Artesia.

“I came here to compete, to ball-out and look for dudes to ball-out against me,'' said Mama, the nation's No. 13 player at offensive guard in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

With a laundry list of potential suitors currently standing at more than 20 scholarships, Mama received another three offers from powerhouse programs in the last week alone.

Alabama was one of the schools: “When I think about playing for the top team in the nation and having a chance to win championships every year, that's a humbling thing,'' he said.

Notre Dame joined the Mama sweepstakes as well: “I've received letters from them, but the offer came out of the blue,'' he said. “Having a chance to play there, it's an honor.''

Oklahoma stepped up its efforts too: “I've been staying in contact them for a while now and talk with the coaches a lot, almost every week now. It's a great school,'' he said.

With regards to making a decision about a future destination, Mama said he doesn't plan on committing anytime soon. Keeping all of his options open appears to be the strategy.

What Are Sports Critics Saying About PTP's Unique Lineman 
 Training Which Includes 
Dance-Off And Hugs?

FOOTBALL: Inland lineman skills camp goes “Prime Time”


Top lineman from all over Southern California flock to Prime Time Polynesian’s lineman camp for skills, competition and comraderie.

BY PEP FERNANDEZ

Published: June 25, 2012 7:15 p.m.


Most football practices don'€™t include dancing and hugs. Then again, Prime Time Polynesian training isn'€™t like most football practices.

"€œWe just implement our Polynesian ways, to have fun and hard work," said Prime Time Polynesian co-founder Chris Talamaivao, who likes to wrap up each workout with a dance-off and plenty of hug time between the players and coaches.

Prime Time Polynesian football training targets the non-skill position players as a response to all the seven-on-seven summer passing leagues.

"What I like to call the forgottens,"€ Talamaivao said. "€œThere'€™s seven-on-seven camps almost year round. There's really nothing out here in the Inland Empire for the big guys."€

Chris Talamaivao, along with his brother Pen and three other coaches, created Prime Time Polynesian just four months ago from humble beginnings.

"Actually started at a park with like four kids, and it'€™s turned out to what it is now,"€ said Talamaivao.

Now 60 to 70 players attend each Prime Time Polynesian camp, rotating locations between Centennial High in Corona and El Toro High in Lake Forest.

The players come from all parts of Southern California, including San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties. The players, predominantly linemen who are also some of the top recruits in Southern California, gather for the intense training and specialized techniques.

"It works on hand control, speed, agility, all in one package," said Centennial lineman Anthony Juarez.

"€œAmazing, amazing,"€ said Eastvale Roosevelt lineman Tyran Shaw. "Intense workouts and fast-paced."€

While many high school students are busy spending their summer at the beach or the movies, the players at Prime Time Polynesian are staying busy by getting better.

"It shows who'€™s really trying to do something with their life," said Moreno Valley Rancho Verde lineman Poasi Moala.

For these players, a Polynesian approach to playing pigskin has improved their game on the gridiron. Who says dancing and hugs don'€™t belong in football?

PTP Opening New Clinic In The OC At El Toro H.S. ~Next Week

Why is PTP adding a new location? 


Coach Pen said, "The answer is simple, 'Demand.'  PTP clinic will open its first Orange County location at El Toro High School."


Why the sudden move to expand? 


Coach Pen had to say, "We have to! We started with 15 kids when we first opened operations at Corona Centennial. Then the next week the numbers increased  with 23 kids. It was like wild fire.  The word was out. Soon 23 kids turned into 33. Now we average 55-60 kids every weekend, with only two months of operation. That is an increase of about 90 percent".  We offer what most clinics can't provide.  We are the only clinic that specialize to the 'forgottens' , OL, DL, TE, FB and LB, at economical prices.  Who could resist us?  I'm not boasting, but these are the facts when your dealing with PTP."



What is so special about PTP clinics/camps?


Coach Pen said, " Man...its the family connection. We pride ourselves as life teachers to our clients. We truly have a connection to these kids through the game of football, which we all love. True, our training is unique and the level of intensity is beyond the norm. But, PTP is about the Polynesian style of family and love. There are so many components, in our clinics that can easily be highlighted through the training, intensity, attitude, and exercises...and most of  all the sense of love. We have all walks of life here training towards a common goal, but its amazing that they can walk away with the experience of 'Polynesian Love'.  To me this is the true highlight of our clinics/camps. 'Mana' the source of unconditional love that we {humans} are all connected."


- Coach Pen, is a University of Utah graduate and founder of the Nemesis Elite II Training program which is used by PTP clinics/camps


How did PTP and Nemesis Elite Training connect?


Coach Pen said, "Coach Chris and Coach Keola approached me and asked to link up and start a program that would benefit our kids.  I agreed and we formulated a program using my Nemesis Elite system with PTP clinics. Prior to all this, Coach Chris was already training kids with Master Coach Ika at local parks. So it was a perfect fit. We came together because we have a vision of what we wanted to achieve and how we wanted our kids to improve beyond the football arena." 


With the expansion of PTP to the Orange County, how do you feel they will receive PTP clinics?


Coach Pen said, "I think with a little bit of hesitation, but in time, they will love us, and be a part of our Prime Time Polynesian Family. I think, as long as Coach Ika and I dance, they will love it. All kidding aside, I feel confident that they will buy into our program, and know that we are the real deal."






Using Polynesian Values To Train Young Athletes Both On And Off The Field

Prime Time Polynesian: American Sports Meet Polynesian Culture


Written by Alan Popadines

Written on Thursday, 31 May 2012  


(Youth1) - In southern California, there’s a new type of training camp; one that does more than just practice drills, techniques, and physical training. It’s a camp that teaches Polynesian culture and values by using them to train young athletes who might never have otherwise had a chance to go to camp. What started as the simple idea of making a camp that created better players as well as better people is growing by leaps and bounds, taking southern California by storm.

Like many great things, it all started with a dream. Before the camp, Co-Founder Pene Talamaivao was working on a new way to train football players while working at the University of Utah. It was there that he developed his Nemesis Elite Program, which was a fast paced and intense workout that was based on football but applicable to other sports. From there he moved to southern California, where he and his brother began coaching children for free to lay the foundation for their program. Together they saw football as something that can bring people together and teach them lessons, whether they win or lose. As Polynesian men, they also wanted to bring their values of family, love, passion, respect, and honor, qualities that they felt were being disregarded in the modern sports culture. Lastly, they wanted to make it affordable.

They scouted other camps in the southern California area and quickly realized that the type of physical training would have to be different as well. Most camps at the time were all about speed, which left the bigger players on the sidelines sitting out while the skilled players trained. This clashed with Talamaivao’s ideals, so the camp has always worked to be more inclusive than others. Players of all skill levels, sizes, and sports are welcome, and with a price of only 20 dollars, it is open to athletes who may never have a shot at more expensive camps.

With these guiding ideas, the camp quickly became successful. What was once a group of 15 participants has now grown to 75 students from 32 schools. They also have a second camp in Lake County. The effects are clearly positive; one of their participants has already had 45 offers from colleges, and another went on to be the MVP at a Nike Training camp.

As for the future, Prime Time Polynesian has no shortage of plans. Currently, only athletes age 12 and above are allowed, but Pene wants to change this. He believes that mixing ages is beneficial, since older athletes can learn by taking a younger one under their wing, and younger players can get a positive and older role model. He also believes that the camp could help to instill proper technique at a young age, which can help them reach their full potential. After reaching out to younger players, Prime Time Polynesian wants to extend the camp to girls. A specialized program has already been developed, but they are still looking for an indoor facility for the right price. If that wasn’t enough, they are also planning a luau on June 2nd to show their appreciation to the participants. Pene also wants to start doing community service with them so that the camp will give back to the community at large as well.

However, Prime Time Polynesian is not without its detractors. Some of their competitors claim that they’re hurting the game by charging so little. Others have said they’re crazy because of the way they run things. This doesn’t bother Pene.

“What’s wrong with being crazy?” he asked.

As his program continues to improve and inspire young athletes, it’s hard to disagree.

PTP Trainee Cameron Hunt Awarded Oakland's 2012 MVP NFTC

Best of Oakland NFTC


Cameron Hunt, OT, Corona (Calif.) Centennial – Following the camp, the offensive line coach referred to Sunday as the best offensive line performance he’s seen since coaching these camps. That success was spearheaded by Cameron Hunt, the offensive line MVP, a new invitee to The Opening and the most dominant force in one-on-ones.

Hunt isn’t a towering presence. He stands at around 6-4 and he weighs enough but the bottom line is that he just doesn’t let anyone get by him. His feet are great, and he uses his hands very effectively in steering defensive linemen and keeping them off of his body. On the next level Hunt probably projects to either guard or tackle and his stock looks to be on the rise.

Currently Boise State, Colorado and Arizona State are on the top of Hunt’s list but he is also hearing from USC, UCLA and Stanford and an offer from any of those three could shake things up.

PTP Trainee Jojo Mathis and Viane Talamaivao Awarded MVP At The NFTC Los Angeles 2012

Some surprises dot MVP awards


By Erik McKinney | WeAreSC.com

Updated: April 3, 2012, 11:43 AM ET


While Hawkins, Mathis and Mitchell doubled up and took home The Opening invites as well as position MVP awards, there were a few surprises as well.

Along the offensive line, the nod went to class of 2014's Viane Talamaivao (Corona, Calif./Centennial), who couldn't hide his shock.

"To be honest with you, I was surprised I was even invited to this camp," Talamaivao said. "It was a big honor to be invited, so I just came in with a mindset to work and get better. Just go out and compete."

Talamaivao said he enjoyed getting the chance to go up against Mathis, his good friend, as well as other standout defensive ends, such as Taco Charlton (Pickerington, Ohio/Pickerington Central). Preparing to head into his junior year, Talamaivoa said he has received early looks from Colorado and Arizona, but doesn't hold any offers yet.

Congratulations PTP Trainee Samson Kafovalu 2012 National Football Foundation Scholar Athlete Riverside County Chapter 3/22/12

The NFF National Scholar-Athlete Awards, presented by Fidelity Investments, was established in 1959 as the first initiative in history to honor scholar-athletes with post-graduate scholarships for their combined athletic, academic and leadership abilities. In 2011, Fidelity Investments became the first official sponsor in the 54-year history of the prestigious program, which has awarded more than $10.4 million to 787 individuals since its inception. The program currently provides $300,000 each year in post-graduate scholarships to the nation’s top scholar-athletes from all levels of collegiate play.

Nominated by their schools, which are limited to one nominee each, candidates must be a senior or graduate student in their final year of eligibility, have a grade point average of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale, have outstanding football ability as a first team player and have demonstrated strong leadership and citizenship.

The class is selected each year by the NFF Awards Committee, which is comprised of a nationally recognized group of media, College Football Hall of Fame inductees and athletics administrators. The committee traditionally selects 15 to 17 scholar-athletes from across the country for these prestigious $18,000 fellowships, and they consider candidates from all levels of college football, including the Division I Bowl Subdivision, Division I Championship Subdivision, Division II, Division III and the NAIA, in making their selections.

The committee also designates one of the recipients as the top college football Scholar-Athlete of the Year, an honor that comes with the William V. Campbell Trophy, endowed by HealthSouth and hosted by the NYAC. Symbolizing the essence of the NFF's mission to build leaders through football, the Campbell Trophy comes with an additional $7,000 in scholarship money for a total of $25,000.

Each recipient travels to New York City as the guest of the foundation for the NFF Annual Awards Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria, where they sit on the dais and have their accomplishments highlighted in front of one of the most powerful and influential audiences in all of sports. The event also includes the induction of the College Football Hall of Fame Class and the presentation of several major awards, including the organization’s highest honor, the Gold Medal, which has been claimed by seven U.S. Presidents.
