Sean Michael Shigematsu, an offensive tackle who was impressive at last week’s All-Poly Camp, said he has accepted a football scholarship from the Warriors.
Shigematsu is 6 feet 5 and 230 pounds.
“I always wanted to be a Warrior,” said Shigematsu, who also plays volleyball and basketball.
His father, Delroy Shigematsu, was a standout multi-sport athete for Kapa‘a in the late 1970s.

Running back Chizzy Dimude has been on the run since arriving in town this week. He’s enrolled in Summer Session II, and is participating in the offseason conditioning program and unsupervised workouts. He’s even taking a yoga class (which Princess Leila will profile in a video tomorrow).
Dimude took a couple of minutes to talk story with the Warrior Beat.
“I came in Sunday. I slept the whole way on the flight. It was fast. I started school the next day.”
From what he can tell ….
“It’s cool. I like it so far. I’m adjusting pretty fast. I can’t wait for the regular season to start.”
“My mom named me that. It’s short for Chizimuzo — ‘God showed me the way’ in Igbo.”
All for one …
“I came out on the (recruiting) visit witih Lametrius (Davis), Aaron (Brown) and Zach (Masch). We didn’t really have a host. It was the week of the Cincinnati game. They were busy with the game. We talked amongst ourselves.”
The Warriors squandered a big lead in losing to Cincinnati.
“Man, I thought we had it. Damn. I was disappointed. It was a good game.”
In hindsight …
“They couldn’t run the ball consistently toward the end of the game. I hope I can make a diffrence. I’m here to make a difference.”
Did you know …
“I like country music. Mom used to take us to school, and she always played country in the background. I couldn’t tell you the names, but I listened to it for a long time. I got used to it.”

Safety Aaron Brown also arrived in town this week. Brown, who is competing for a starting berth, already has mastered the shaka sign.
