    I find it very funny that every year more and more kids are signing letters of intent as a “walkon.” It’s embarrassing. They have no business signing any letter of intent because they ain’t good enough to get a scholarship. They worst part is the parents are they supporting this. What a joke. Clean it up Hawaii.

    When you sign on as a “walk on” you are getting an opportunity to tryout for the team. Just because you don’t get an athletic scholarship, that does not mean there aren’t other means of school being paid. You have academic scholarships, grant in aid, athletic grant in aid. All schools don’t offer athletic scholarships. Being able to compete on the college level and your schooling being paid for it a HUGE deal….


  3. are you really a sportsman? February 7, 2018 1:57 pm

    As a walkon they are still playing at a higher level than you probably ever did. Maybe just going to college is a higher level than you ever did as well…thanks for the positivity creepo.


  4. Honestly? February 7, 2018 3:41 pm

    Tryout for a team? Is this high school all over again? You guys crack me up so much. You guys should really open your eyes up to the rest of the country. Nobody else having signing days for walk ons. So pathetic. It has nothing to do with school. I have a problem with the “misleading” part. You are signing a letter of intent because a school offered you a athletic scholarship. So, what are these kids signing especially in D3 cause there ain’t no athletic scholarship? There is no athletic scholarships for D3 which in my eyes athletically is a joke anyways. Academically very good though.

    National Letter if Intent (NLI) is a commitment to PLAY at the college and confirmation that the athlete meets all NCAA guidelines. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have an athletic scholarship. It does however imply you’re “on the team”.
    We all have our opinions but at least the kids are trying to play at a higher level and get a college education.
    Congrats and Best of Luck!

    Geez…so many haters. Honestly: you can’t say for a fact that kids in other states don’t participate in signing day events when they are simply signing grant-in-aid agreements instead of national letters of intent. D3 schools don’t give athletic scholarships, but you know what? Ivy League schools competing at the D1 level also don’t give athletic scholarships. Now what? Kids signing with Harvard, Yale, or Princeton are losers too for for signing their grant-in-aid? Signing day is a big event to for these kids and their families. They aren’t hurting anyone. Let them have their moment. Think about how many walk on kids eventually went on to prove they were scholarship worthy, and some even become the best players on their teams, or even pros! So, chill. Have a coke and a smile you sad, sad person.

    Kendal Stovall and Kylie Minamishin – Kamehameha are both going to University of Nevada Reno (Nevada) , Not UNLV.

    Fact check please….


  8. Wise Up Hawaii February 8, 2018 10:23 am

    A young athlete seeking a higher level of education should never be seen as a downfall. Wise up.


  9. auwe February 8, 2018 1:23 pm

    Completely agree with Sportsman and Honestly. NLI is a binding agreement between student-athlete and school to play that sport. A walk-on might not even make the team. If you are going to a school because of academic scholie or financial aid, that is not a NLI.


  10. Crusaders 89 February 9, 2018 3:20 pm

    Sportsman, Honestly and auwe are the same people. Get the same ip address. How pathetic you gotta be for make separate accounts just to agree with yourself talking bad about kids? I hope you and your multiple personalities done have any kids. For sure you going ruin them with that pathetic attitude!

    Congrats to all kids! Big school, small school, d1 or d3 or jc or walk on. Never stop chasing your dreams! And never mind these tiny haters! Majority of Hawaii is behind you! Go get em!

    The picture is not Tokunaga


  12. KOH I NOR March 12, 2018 7:44 pm

    Athletic scholarship? Borrowed money to send them to UH and play sports. As for studying, I highly doubt it they need Rolle’s theorem or Boolean algebra or First law of thermodynamics. Simple stuffs is enough. Grammer. Read, write. That stuff.


  13. KOH I NOR March 12, 2018 7:52 pm

    Yeah. You know me. Cool ain’t it? Rush hour 2
