Just a few hours after Saint Louis’ 47-23 comeback victory over Mililani in the Division I-Open semifinals of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA State Football Championships, wide receiver Mitchell Quinn had some news to share.
Quinn, who caught eight passes for a state-tournament record 307 yards and five touchdowns, announced that he has received his first college scholarship offer: Hawaii.
The story that passed through the press box after the game at Aloha Stadium is that UH passing-game coordinator and wide receivers coach Craig Stutzmann made his way through the north tunnel and talked to Quinn during the game. That’s when he made the offer. Whatever the process was, Quinn confirmed the offer via Twitter just after 1 a.m. on Saturday.
In addition to his heroics in the semifinal win over Mililani, Quinn was invited to play in the Polynesian Bowl on Friday.
