UH offers 15-year-old Kamalei Correa!

About how her son was destined to be a Warrior, Lani Correa (who has worked for UH’s athletic department for more than two decades) said:
“I was working while I was pregnant with him. He was born to be a Warrior.” (HA)

HA Note: “Kamalei Correa has received a scholarship offer from the Warriors. The offer is postdated to 2013. That’s because Correa, who turned 15 in April, will be entering the ninth grade at Saint Louis School.”

About her son getting an offer from UH before he even began high school, Lani said:
“We’re in awe.” (HA)

HA Note: “Recruits may not verbally accept offers until their junior years, but the Correas have been assured that head coach coach Greg McMackin will honor the offer. Last year, McMackin made national news when he offered a scholarship to Reeve Koehler, then an eight-grader. Correa and Koehler will be Saint Louis classmates this year.”

HA Note: “The Correas have long ties to the Warriors. Kamalei Correa’s eldest brother, La’anui Correa, was a standout defensive end for the Warriors Haku Correa, also a defensive lineman, will be a second-year freshman this season.”

About how her sons have always been around the UH campus, Lani said:
“My sons grew up on campus. They’ve always been around.” (HA)

About how La’anui (who is 6’4″) sometimes would pick on Kamalei when they were younger, Lani laughed and said:
“I told La’anui, ‘You’d better watch out, he’s going to be bigger than you one day.’ ” (HA)

About how Kamalei is now 6’1″ and 232 pounds, Lani said:
“And he’s growing.” (HA)

HA Note: “Kamalei also is a gifted baseball player. One coach told Lani that Kamalei “is a freak of nature” athletically.”

About how she tells her son that success comes from hard work, Lani said:
“This is what happens when you work hard. You need to keep applying yourself, especially in school. He’s learning that hard work pays off.” (HA)

HA Note: “Lani said Kamalei was named after Lee Michael Goeas, who was a family friend and organizer of PAL events. Goeas died in March 1994, a month before Kamalei was born . Kamalei translates to “my beloved.” Leilani named her son Kamalei Lee Michael Correa in memory of Goeas.”
