Twelve high school prep athletes were inducted into the 2013 Enterprise Rent-A-Car / Hawai`i High School Athletic Association Hall of Honor Sunday in front of a crowd of parents, sponsors, media, and state athletic personnel.

The annual event, which was held at the Sheraton Waikiki, featured a keynote speech from Olympic champion Brian Clay, a past inductee into the Hall of Honor. Clay spent all of his time turned to the 12 students on the stage, telling them what life as a professional athlete is like and giving them the real insight into how to conduct themselves on, and off, the playing surface.
