Players from the Waianae and Kamehameha football teams joined forces for a public service project recently.
The Warriors and Seariders, along with head coaches Walter Young of Waianae and Abu Maafala of Kamehameha, worked on a cleanup at Maili Beach Park in Waianae on July 14.
“It was just us two teams teaming up before we play our preseason game (Aug. 5 at Kamehameha),” Maafala wrote in a text to Hawaii Prep World.
Added Young: “We cleaned up rubbish and covered the whole beach. We usually do something like that every summer. This year, one of our coaches, Kaleo Searle, who is related to Abu, had the idea for the two teams to get together. A lot of Kamehameha’s kids come from our Westside, too. It’s (the Aug. 5 matchup) is gonna be a fun game.”
