Marcus Mariota is among 24 players on the watch list for the inaugural Polynesian Pro Football Player of the Year Award.
The winner of the award, which is presented by Hawaiian Airlines, will be honored during the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend, Jan. 29-30 on Oahu.
The winner will be announced Dec. 8, after five finalists are named Dec. 8.
The finalists and the winner will be chosen by the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee.
Mariota, the Tennessee Titans quarterback who made his NFL debut in record-breaking fashion with four touchdown passes Sunday, won the PFHOF’s Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award last year.
