Fey Kupono 120x187The football Warriors aren't the only UH team having a successful recruiting week.

The volleyball Warriors landed one of the state's top players — Punahou outside hitter Kupono Fey.

He's 6-5, athletic and comes from a good bloodline. His grandfather was Harry "Clown" Kahuanui, the first UH football player to compete in a collegiate all-star game. His bio can be found in UH's Circle of Honor. Fey's mother is Shelley Fey, a long-time basketball coach who is now Punahou's chair of the physical education department.

Kupono Fey spent the summer competing on USA Volleyball's Youth National team.

"He's big, he's physical, he's a great coachable kid," Punahou coach Rick Tune said.

This is a significant get for the volleyball Warriors, who have seen more than their share of ILH players head to the mainland. Credit Charlie Wade, Jeff Hall and new assistant Sean Carney for trying to keep the top local players home.
