  • Awesome work. Love seeing all the Hawaii wrestlers at the next level. I’ll be sharing this article so that youngsters can use it to fuel their own dreams.

    • YES. For all of the Hawaii wrestlers: keep working like you’ve been working (like a dog, right?) and that college opportunity is there for you. And, Richie, thank you for reading and the nice words about the article.
