UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII FOOTBALL DINNER WITH COLT BRENNAN

UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII
FOOTBALL DINNER
LUANA HILLS COUNTRY CLUB

We were blessed to attend a special fundraiser for the University of Hawaii this week. We were part of a small group of people who were able to meet and eat with former University of Hawaii superstar quarterback Colt Brennan and many other former players who have reached the NFL. All of the Hawaii coaches were there including Head Coach Greg Mc'Mackin and Assistant Head Coach Rich Miano. Rich was actually the guy who invited us. The evening started with a very private meet and greet in a small room away from the crowd. We were able to meet with Colt Brennan who is now playing for the Washington Redskins. Also met Devone Bess (Miami Dolphins), Jake Ingram (New England Patriots), Ryan Mouton (Tennesse Titans) and Ashley Lelei from the Oakland Raiders. As usual Colt was an amazingly humble and giving person. He took time to sign mini helmets, real helmets, hats, footballs and about a dozen photographs we had brought. He did not complain a bit, just kept signing and saying thank you. What a guy Colt is. Truly a good person with a huge heart. Jake, Ryan, Ashley and Devone were as equally gracious. All giving us time, warm smiles and autographs galore. After the signing we joined the players and coaches in a small ballroom. There were standard pupu's that included sashimi, poke, wontons and crab claws. Throw in an open bar and the night got started on a good note. The evenings buffet included fish, chicken and prime rib. Not too bad. Coach Mike Smith former NFL player and now our linebacker coach joined our table for dinner. He shared some stories from his days at Texas Tech and in the NFL. Great guy who is down to earth and still rooted in his Texas values. The night was capped off with a authentic Warrior football helmet signed by all the coaching staff and Colt Brennan.
