Farrington’s Fehoko earns top bench press mark at Nike’s The Opening Camp

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Nike’s “The Opening” Camp featured three local boys, who showcased their talents in what’s considered the most prestigious invitation only prep-football camp in the country. The six day camp started Tuesday with Farrington’s defensive-tackle Breiden Fehoko standing out among the top 150-seniors across America.

Fehoko, who verbally committed to Texas Tech, had the highest bench-press mark in the camp with 42 reps of 185 pounds.

Todd Huber, the Offensive Line and Defensive Line Player Personnel Director for The Opening, ranked Fehoko in the top five defensive linemen at the camp with his performance on Tuesday.

Offensive Linemen Semisi Uluave of Punahou and Saint Louis’s Fred Ulu-Perry are also representing Hawaii at the Nike camp.

Before he left for Oregon, Fehoko told KHON2’s Sam Spangler that he is anxiously waiting the lineman challenge on Thursday; even if he has to go against his peers from Hawaii.

“You know off the field, you know they’re my brothers. You know I workout with Semisi, I’ve known Fred since I was a kid, but on the field it’s a different story,” said Fehoko. “I mean my dad says ‘You know, if your grandma’s in the opposite uniform, I’m in the opposite uniform, your dad, your brother, your sister, anybody else, you hit them’.”

Coverage for ‘The Opening’ continues Thursday 7:00 a.m. on ESPNU.
