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.

    Awesome. He demonstrated that he has the hands, speed, and ability to make tacklers miss. Needs to put on some muscle. Uh has offered him and Cordeiro, another super-talented athlete. Remains to be seen if they’ll commit. The record UH has could be a factor in their decisions. But it would be good if UH can land some top local talent.

    The most underrated prospect in the state all season. Just knows how to run routes. He will contribute early in his career if he ends up a Warrior.

    Dude, if other college’s dont offer this kid, their not doing their homework. This kid was amazing last night. Damn good! RR4L._.

    I’ve said it before, on a team that has exceptional talent at the offensive skill positions, I thought this kid was definitely a cut above the rest. No disrespect to the other receivers for the Crusaders, but this kid, Quinn, is by far, the best of the bunch. What he lacks in size, he makes up with precise route running, great hands, elusiveness, and flat out SPEED. Congrats, young fella!!

    Congrats and best of luck Mitchell! This kid is a ‘chip off the old block’ as his Dad, Don, was a decorated Rhode Island high school football player himself “a few years ago”.

    Wait until he plays big red tonight. Once our secondary smacks him in the mouth a few times, Hawaii will revoke their scholarship offer. RRFL!

    Head referee Michael Goshima a St. Louis class of 1969 Grad was the head umpire for the Open division Championship game. Can HPW do an investigation as to why this is not a conflict?

    Is this another one of Cal Lees tactical advantages since he cant use 19yr olds anymore?
