Former University of Hawaii football players Makani Kema-Kaleiwahea and Makoa Camanse-Stevens have signed contracts to play in the German Football League.

Kema-Kaleiwahea will play for the Cologne Crocodiles. Camanse-Stevens has joined the Stuttgart Scorpions. Both players are scheduled to arrive in Germany on Tuesday. Their first games are on Sunday.

“I’m excited for this opportunity,” said Kema-Kaleiwahea, who is projected to compete as a weak-side linebacker, rush end, running back, fullback and tight end.

Kema-Kaleiwahea has an escape clause that will allow him to leave to join the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. Kema-Kaleiwahea is on the Blue Bombers’ reserve list as a fullback and outside linebacker.

Camanse-Stevens has been told he will be used as a receiver or quarterback for the Scorpions. He was a quarterback at Kamehameha Schools and receiver/option passer with the Warriors.

Both players completed their UH eligibility at the end of the 2016 Hawaii Bowl.
