A lot of people were wondering why head coach Cal Lee missed No. 1 Saint Louis’ 21-7 victory over Kamehameha on Saturday.
According to his brother, assistant coach Ron Lee, Cal Lee had a kidney stones problem.
Ron Lee added that Cal had surgery on Monday and was in the recovery room in the afternoon.
“I spoke with his son and from what he tells me Cal is doing well,” Ron Lee told Hawaii Prep World via cellphone Monday afternoon.
As brothers sometimes do, Ron put the pressure on Cal, kiddingly.
“I hope we see him at practice tomorrow (Tuesday). We need him,” Ron Lee said.
The Crusaders (6-1, 5-1) play ‘Iolani in an ILH second-round (single-elimination tournament) matchup on Friday.
Defensive backs coach Wes Tufaga was the Crusaders’ acting head coach in Lee’s absence for the win over Kamehameha.
Cal Lee is the winningest coach in Hawaii high school football history.
