Saint Louis teammates Jonah Panoke and Kai Kaneshiro put on impressive showings in the recently completed Gridiron Performance Academy football showcase at Saint Louis school.
The hometown team noticed.
Panoke, a 6-foot-2 wide receiver, and Kaneshiro, a 6-foot-2 defensive back, both said Friday night on Twitter that they had been offered by Hawaii after being recognized as top performers at the GPA camp that ended on Thursday.

Panoke was named the MVP of the camp while Kaneshiro was named the top defensive back.
Panoke played in six games for the Crusaders and had 11 receptions for 207 yards and a touchdown as a junior. Saint Louis was loaded with seniors at the position and Panoke is expected to be a key contributor for the Crusaders this fall.
With Kaneshiro and Panoke both landing offers from Hawaii, eight Crusaders who will be seniors in the fall hold at least one scholarship offer. Defensive lineman Faatui Tuitele is the No. 1 prospect in the class of 2019 with 14 offers and defensive back Mason Tufaga, who will be a freshman in the fall, already holds an offer from UH.
