Big day today starts with Hawaii football

April 21, 2012 - Robert Collias
It was a lively practice for the University of Hawaii football team this morning at War Memorial Stadium to start a very busy day for Valley Isle sports.

I covered that event — the focus of my story will be four Maui recruits that UH unofficially hosted while a somewhat small crowd of 1,200 or so looked on under sunny skies. The practice wrapped up with 7-on-7 passing drills in the red zone, the closest thing there was to a "scrimmage" that UH Athletic Department types promised for the event.

Baldwin sophomore linebacker Jordan Hoiem talked to me about the verbal scholarship offer that came flying out of nowhere from UH coach Norm Chow last month; Baldwin junior quarterback Keelan Ewaliko confirmed that he is being recruited by the school as an "athlete"; former Baldwin place kicker Ceejay Santos, now a freshman, talked to UH coaches about his transfer to the school from Weber State (a fact we reported here first during winter break); and Lahainaluna lineman Feleti Taufa said he was offered an invited walk-on opportunity on Saturday morning.

I am currently at the Baldwin-Maui High MIL Division I tournament championship baseball game (it's 1-0 Baldwin in the bottom of the third), a Lanai win this morning forced a winner-take-all championship game in D-II softball at Patsy Mink Field, the MIL tournament is taking place at Wailea, individual golf is wrapping up today at Kaanapali, the junior varsity track meet is tonight, MIL judo has a meet today, and there are various boys volleyball matches taking place.

I don't think I'm forgetting anything, but if I am check tomorrow's paper — we will deliver it all in a neat package in the morning.
