It’s from nearly two years ago and doesn’t fit the strict definition of “newsworthy,” but it’s still worth sharing this video of former Waipahu football head coach Sean Saturnio when he was an assistant coach at Georgia Southern.
In the video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-YGehtz–A), Saturnio is being interviewed by a reporter and answers questions about the Eagles, a Football Championship Series squad. The questioning turns to his use of Hawaiian words such as “pono” and “aloha.”
All of a sudden, though (spoiler alert), Saturnio — in the video from August 2013 — moves to his left to ask his girlfriend, Sharon, to become his wife. She accepts.
Saturnio and his bride married in 2014. He is about to begin his second season as the fullbacks coach at Army after spending two seasons at Georgia Southern. Prior to that, Saturnio, who is from Hilo and is a former University of Hawaii wide receiver, spent nine seasons as the Waipahu head coach after being an assistant for two years.
Saturnio was named the Oahu Interscholastic Association coach of the year once and the OIA Western Division coach of the year once.
