Hawaii Heroes

The University of Hawaii Warriors football team, all of them, are truly heroes to us. Colt Brennan, quarterback, was one of the 4 finalists for the Heisman trophy, the team had 5 All-Americans, and Coach June Jones is a finalist for Coach of the Year.

The Warriors were the ONLY NCAA Division I team to go undefeated this year.

Aloha Stadium was completely sold out for the last few games of the season, almost 50,000 fans, and millions more were cheering the team on TV. While the UH team may not get all the credit it deserves, because the team didn't play "top ranked" schools, or because Brennan missed a couple of games, their record speaks for itself, as do all the NCAA records Brennan broke this season, as do the scores of the 3 games in which he led the team from behind to win. He will be missed greatly, but 2nd quarterback Tyler Graunke, who will be a Senior, is ready to take over.

Congratulations to you all!
