Career outside of sports: “Join the film union with my dad. He’s a camera man, lighting technician for ‘Hawaii 5-0’. He also worked on ‘King Kong’ and ‘Hunger Games’. Or become a stunt man for the movies.”

The one thing your mom (Christi Kalaugher) says that sticks with you: “If you really love it, stick with it and don’t give up.”

The one thing your dad (Mark Kalaugher) says that sticks with you: “Be smart. be a leader.”


The most satisfying thing about being a basketball player at Kaiser: “My best friends are my teammates. I’ve grown up with them since I was a little kid. Also, the support the school gives to the team. The next day after a game, everyone always says, ‘Good game’ and ‘Good luck’ and just supportive things like that.”

The most satisfying thing about being a football player at Kaiser: “We have a lot of hype and we are able to hold each other accountable. The crowds at the games are really wild and that has a huge effect on the way we play.”

This person makes me laugh: “All of my friends. We just like to tell jokes. There’s never a day hanging with them that we don’t bust out laughing about something.”


This person makes me want to work more: “Myself. I have very high standards for myself and I push myself when things get rough or I just don’t feel like working. It’s the thought in my head that tells me to push because I will only be getting better.”

The one thing about me that would surprise most people: “I like to jump off cliffs into the water. My favorite place to jump is a ledge across from the Hawaii Kai Gun Range. It’s about 65 feet. I can do back flips and gainers off there.”
