Kahuku football coach Vavae Tata chats after the Red Raiders defeated Mililani 20-7 for the OIA Division I championship.
I like Coach Tata. Quiet,few words to the point. Bought Coach Hao over. Redemption. Ironic, St.Louis let Hao go, only to have him take away the State trophy from their grasp as the opponent.
@Paul Honda – Does Coach Tata not like you or is he like that with every media person?
Both Coach and PH are excellent peoples and have had smooth interviews together in the past. I think on this particular day after a big game it sounded like Tata had his own thoughts that he wanted to talk about as indicated by his initiation of the interview and was willing to give PH a few minutes rather then a short hurried interview. PH had a preset of questions that he wanted answered probably because he usually doesnt have much time with the interviewee, so instead of rolling with what Tata was saying PH tried to get down to his questions and thats why the interview seemed awkard.
..bet if PH knew Tata was so willing to express his thoughts he would have rolled with it and slowly get around to asking his own questions.
