David Katina on the World Team

UH recruit David Katina will be participating in the Team USA vs the World football game on January 30th.
Two local boys — Leone High School graduate Beck Coulter and Kanana Fou High School senior David Katina, both linebackers — have been named to World Team, the squad which will face Team USA at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Jan. 30 during NFL Pro Bowl Week.

In a statement from the International Federation of American Football (IFAF), it says World Team Head Coach Jan Jenmert named 43 players from eight countries and four continents to the World Team roster yesterday. World Team will face USA Football’s junior national team at Lockhart Stadium Jan. 30, the match set to be broadcast live by the NFL network.

American Samoa will be ratified as the 58th member of IFAF at the organization’s annual Congress in 2010, according to the IFAF.
Here's more info about the game from USAvWorld.com.

Here's a press release about it from AmericanSamoa.gov.

And according to the IFAF.org website, former UH recruit Jesse Williams will also be on the World team.
Anchoring the defensive line will be JESSE WILLIAMS, an indigenous Australian from Arizona Western College who first played down under for the Bayside Ravens and the Queensland Sun Devils State Team

"I look forward to the experience of playing in front of a much larger crowd than I'm used to and to show the world that indigenous Australians can play the game physically," said Williams.
I wonder if he'll still play for UH one day. He initially committed to UH back in 2007.
