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
