Feature story on Kainoa LaCount

HSB Note: “Kainoa LaCount learned the importance of hitting the books. Now he can get back to hitting on the field. LaCount signed with UH last year, but did not complete his associate’s degree at College of the Canyons in time to enroll for the fall semester. He finished up in the spring and walked on with the Warriors this season.”

About how he learned to not take his education for granted, Kainoa LaCount said:
“Last year was pretty rough. It was a good learning experience, do your homework. I don’t take education for granted any more. I’m a student-athlete.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “LaCount was a highly recruited prospect coming out of both Kailua High and College of the Canyons. After sitting out a year and finally reaching the Division I level, getting back into football shape will be among his chief tasks during fall camp.”

About how he’ll learn today if he’s in football shape, LaCount said:
“I’ve been working out and stuff, but we’ll find out (today) with the hitting.” (HSB)
