Warrior Kagawa Among Sunday’s Hall of Honor Inductees
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.
Among the group on inductees was Kamehameha-Hawai`i graduate Shaun Kagawa. The football, basketball, and tennis standout attended the event with his family. School athletic director Kimo Weaver and assistant athletic director Nelson Wong also attended.
Kagawa will attend Army to play football. He has also been given a chance to try out for the school’s basketball program.
Kagawa was the only athlete from a Big Island school inducted Sunday.
Each inductee received a $2,000 scholarship from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the title sponsor of the Hall of Honor festivities.
