Ioane Named To Polynesian Player Of The Year List

July 23, 2014

  • Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Watch List

    BOISE, Idaho - Redshirt senior safety Jeremy Ioane was named to the preseason watch list of the Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award, announced Wednesday by the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame.

    It is the second preseason award list to which the Honolulu native has been named this month. On July 11 Ioane, along with junior cornerback Donte Deayon, was named to the preseason watch list for the Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to the nation's top defensive back.

    Ioane was named second-team All-MW in 2013, starting each of his 12 games played. He recorded 59 tackles (40 solo) on the season, the fifth-most on the team. He had multiple tackles in every game, and was also the Broncos' second-leading tackler in 2012 (70).

    He is one of only three defensive backs returning in 2014 from last year's All-MW First or Second Teams.

    The Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award, established by the organization Wednesday, will be awarded annually to the most outstanding Polynesian college football player that epitomizes great ability and integrity. The winner will be announced on December 9, 2014. Five finalists will be unveiled November 20. The formal presentation will be at the Celebration Dinner during the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend on January 23, 2015.
