Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota will return to Honolulu to take part in 2016 Pro Bowl festivities, the NFL announced Thursday.
As part of the nationwide Super Bowl High School Honor Roll initiative recognizing schools and communities that contributed to Super Bowl history and positively impacted the game of football, the NFL will recognize every varsity high school football player on the island of Oahu at the Pro Bowl by hosting them at the game and honoring them at halftime.
Mariota will walk onto the field at halftime with students from his alma mater, Saint Louis School, during the celebration.
The 2016 Pro Bowl presented by USAA will be played on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016 and televised live on ESPN at 7:00 PM ET from Aloha Stadium.
Tickets to the Pro Bowl are now on sale through ProBowl.com or by calling 1-844-4PB-TKTS.
Last November, Pro Football Hall of Famer and Pro Bowl Legend captain Michael Irvin, along with three-time Super Bowl champion Jesse Sapolu, visited Farrington High School to kick off a series of Wilson Golden Football deliveries to Hawaii high schools in the build up to the Pro Bowl.
Farrington is one of 11 schools honored in this program.
The deliveries will culminate Pro Bowl week with a special event taking place at Kahuku High and Intermediate School as part of the Pro Bowl Community Blitz.
Mariota will also appear at Pro Bowl Beach, the NFL’s free to fan event in the Queen’s Beach area of Waikiki. The event will be open from 10:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 29 and Saturday, Jan. 30.
