Baldwin football must move on without Ewaliko, Roloos
June 29, 2013 - Robert Collias
While Baldwin High School's record-setting quarterback Keelan Ewaliko has moved on to the University of Hawaii football team, we have confirmed with several sources that head coach A.J. Roloos has stepped away from the program after six seasons as the top football Bear.
Former assistant coaches Keneke Pacheco and Rodney Figueroa are co-head coaches, at least for now, and have been running the ship since spring drills. Expect this story to continue to develop as the season closes in.
Meanwhile, the Bears also must move on without one of their best, most versatile players ever in Ewaliko.
Here is the start of my story on Ewaliko, who we named MIL Boy Athlete of the Year in Friday's paper:
The future has begun for Keelan Ewaliko.
The past, however, is something to behold.
Ewaliko graduated from Baldwin High School last month as a three-time Maui Interscholastic League Offensive Player of the Year in football and a five-time state champion in track and field, unprecedented accomplishments in MIL lore.
Today, he stands as The Maui News MIL Boy Athlete of the Year for 2012-13.
"It kind of surprises me to be recognized as one of the top guys," Ewaliko said via telephone from Oahu on Tuesday, after his first day as a scholarship member of the University of Hawaii football team. "It's an honor and a privilege and I'm humbled to be Athlete of the Year. It's just another example of hard work and determination to the sport."
