Beautiful morning at the Elks Lodge in Waikiki on signing day for dozens of student-athletes from the islands.
Among them were a handful of football players, including Punahou’s all-state offensive lineman, Davis Miyashiro-Saipa‘ia. The senior signed with Oregon as a preferred walk-on, turning down several opportunities at smaller schools.
Isaac Hurd, Campbell’s big-play quarterback, signed with Southern Oregon.
Among the other notable signees are Sarah Liva, Mililani’s all-state basketball player, who signed with Portland State. Punahou’s three-sport standout, Keau Fey, will play volleyball at Winthrop (S.C.).
Baseball standouts include Punahou pitcher Bo Coolen, who inked his letter for Pepperdine.
More on today’s early-morning signing later. See photos below the list.
