Belated congratulations to Ka Ulukoa 17s on winning the USVA Boys' Junior Volleyball championship. Former Warrior Pono Ma‘a is the head coach. Future Warrior Tui Tuileta was the tournament's MVP. Tuileta, who is entering his senior year at Punahou, will play football and volleyball at UH.

Micah Ma‘a, who will be a junior, also was named to the all-tourament team as an outside hitter. His usual position is setter. He is the son of Pono Ma‘a and former Rainbow Wahine Lisa Strand-Ma‘a.

A recruit who plays beach volleyball. A volleyball-football player. Football players on the beach. We've come full circle today.

We were too late to get in on the ground floor on Apple, Google and L&L Drive Inn stock. But if you're in charge of the football schedule at UH, it would be a good idea to take advantage of newbies and book early. These schools are launching FCS programs:

In 2013:

Houston Baptist



North Carolina-Charlotte

In 2014:

East Tennessee State


New Orleans

They're new and naive. Don't even tell them about travel subsidies.
