The state of Hawaii is well represented on the Southern Oregon University football roster, and this weekend SOU football will be represented in Hawaii.
Raiders coach James Gravelle was asked last week to coach at the annual Life Champion Senior Bowl, an all-star game for 132 of Hawaii's top players. Gravelle will serve as a defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach at the game, which takes place Saturday on the island of Kauai.
"This is a great opportunity to represent Southern Oregon University and our football program while working with the top players in the state of Hawaii who demonstrate the same core values we hold true to our program: character, strength and honor," Gravelle said. "I can't express enough gratitude to Life Champion Bowl founder Keala Pule for the magnetic opportunity."
The SOU roster featured nine Hawaiians in 2016. Eight of them are slated to return next season.
Gravelle, an SOU alumnus, was promoted to defensive coordinator prior to last season. He was previously on the Raider staff from 1997 to 2005 and returned in 2015.
