    Kinda sad you say Punahou can recruit and buy players, don’t even know what these Kam and Punahou kids benefit when going to their respective schools. Unlike your education, these kids can show out and ball! @???

    Invite Chayce Morgan from Nanakuli High School.

    Despite the teams losing record, this kid shined and showed out against the top D1 teams in their conference.

    Great leader and student-athlete. Not many like him from Nanakuli.
