Northern California has some of the top recruits in the US like Tongan Jordan Parker who has been courted by the likes of Washington State, UCLA and now the Oklahoma Sooners.

At half-time, the score was American Samoa 14, North Cal 7 and it stayed that way the rest of the night.

Head coach Pati Pati says this has been a rewarding experience for players from competing teams across the island to come together to play for American Samoa, and also the coaches.

This was the first time a national high school football team has played off island.
