Once again, about 20 Warriors spent time with their new friends at the Boys & Girls Club of Honolulu.
They played dodgeball, pool and foosball, and offered advice on everything from academics to doing the right things. The Warriors also learned a lesson: Hawaii’s kids are skilled dodgeball players. As a counselor noted: “This is what we do.”
Just another perfect day in Paradise.
Let’s Go Bows!
Pssst! The oama are in at some spots I hear.
Shucks, missed it…Looks like a lot of new players…

Great Pics ST; keep them coming; we appreciate it!
Great to see the Warriors giving back to the community. I know the kids most love it.
Tsai can’t take a bad picture these days, and if he does we aint seeing them. Mahalo, Blog Lord.
DPK: yes you’re right that the kids must love it. That is also the way to help build the fan base. I’m sure some will choose to go to the game and watch their new friends play on Saturday night. They might bring some family too.
Back in the day we used to host UH Basketball players for dinner at the KSK intermediate dorms. Afterwords, the players and kids would make teams together and play full court. It was great fun for all!
Players I’m sure made an impression on the kids (and da beeg kids like us eh DPK!) Main thing they take time to integrate into the community that they represent.
Good morning everyone!
If “a picture is worth a thousand words”, then big photos are worth more! Keep it up, ST!
Kudos to the players who were there. Looking at the pictures it seemed like a day of “big kids” helping little kids. I’m sure the players got as much enjoyment out the experience as the kids did. It was a break from the serious routine of off season workouts and a time to just be a kid again. Play for fun.
3-P. The sad reality is very few of the kids families can afford to take them to see their “friends” play. Not unless someone steps up to help the B & G Club organize such an outing.
Jerrell jackson transferring?
Stephen F. Austin???
Sometime kids just realized that they won’t be able to crack the starting lineup soon and leave for more PT.
I don’t know the situation with Jerrell but he is definitely moving closer to home and also maybe sees himself in the same situation as last season and would rather bail.
Good Luck to the young man.
By any chànce you know a Keapana from warrior sports network? I had 1300 post there, now it’s gone. DDSPHON forum. Some are here. Why? Too serious! Major
He’s been thinking about it for a while. He has two kids. But no release … yet. We’ll see what happens this week.
If he has to go because of family, let him go and wish him the best…Next man up…
Thanks for the pics, Stephen.
Video of the University of Houston’s new 40,000 seat stadium. First game was in 2014. Nice and looks very simple, in many ways. Long term dream is that something like this can be built for UH. Not a lot of parking, it seems. Like how everyone is wearing “Red” to show their spirit.
Not sure about the situation. I asked him on Thursday if he was leaving, and he said, “no.” Because I’m old, I asked him again, and he said “no” again. He seems like a nice guy, and I really think it’s in his best interest to stay. The academic support he received was tremendous. Plus, if he goes the JC route, there are no guarantees he will end up at Division I again. There just aren’t that many scholarships. But a person gotta do what a person gotta do. Whatever he decides, I hope he earns a college degree. That’s the only thing that will matter in five years.
Houston and Hawaii are two different UHs. For one, Texas has more space. It also doesn’t have a state tax. Then again, Houston is one of the nation’s smoggiest cities.
OL Ben Dew can say that……he started for both UHs……
Yup, agree. Family first, but need to get that degree, even if not at UH.
Good luck to Jerrell jackson. Whether he stays or leaves, stay on track and get that degree. That piece of paper will stay with you for life and open doors. Like an old-time teacher/coach once said: “After a couple years pau playing football, no one going remember you.”
Interesting that during the WAC days in the early 2000s, many UH players said that Houston was their favorite conference city to visit.
Why not UH just take over Punahou’s football stadium and build on that?

I really hope Jerrell Jackson stays he has the most potential out of all of our CBs
Years ago, the State planned to build a stadium at Kaimuki High. That was shelved when Kaiser High opened and the $$ went there. Roosevelt’s stadium and field looks good. I drive by Farrington HS everyday and it looks to me that the construction for their stadium is coming along, albeit very slowly.
If the rumors are true, based on declining enrollment and Kalani High’s new district line that stretching to Kapahulu, now, maybe a new UH stadium could be built when they close down Kaimuki High 🙂
