Tomorrow is the Na Koa Bowl, which is being held at the Stan Sheriff Center starting at 5pm. If you can't be there it'll be on KFVE and streaming on NaKoa.org. Be there!

Entertainers include Kapono, Afatia Thompson, Imua, Kauakahi, Del Beazley, UH Band, Cheerleaders and Dancer, Kahea, and Hyper Squad.Stephen Tsai writes that the placekicking and longsnapping jobs are still up for grabs.
McMackin said Dick Tomey, who coordinates the special teams, will select the No. 1 place-kicker this week.In Part 4 of The Garden Island's "Kaua‘i Guys" series, Tyson Alger profiles freshman starting right tackle Sean Shigematsu.
McMackin said choosing the long-snapper will be a "game-day decision."
Shigematsu was always big, but now he’s huge. Heading into camp this season, the Kaua‘i native has added about 60 pounds since his senior year of high school. The scary thing for opponents is that even at 305 pounds, Shigematsu still has the athleticism that appealed to McMackin 60 pounds ago.Ryan Thorburn of The Daily Camera has a prediction for this Saturday's season opener.
“The weight has definitely been a big jump,” Shigematsu said. “I’m not really sure how I’ve gained all that weight, but it feels right. I’ve grown into it. It doesn’t feel like I’m sloppy. I can still move.”
