Where Are They Now?

Steelers.com - USA - What is your current job and what does it entail?

I am working with Army Youth Sports. We organize games and different sports for kids in military families. We have different programs for them, have sports games for them. I help put the programs together and implement them. It’s a lot of fun. We are able to do football camps using the military facility. It helps out a lot because it can hold a lot of people. We have had a lot of football camps. It’s awesome.

Did you ever help at football camps for kids while you wee playing for the Steelers?

I did a couple of football camps up there that Merril Hoge and Chris Conrad ran. That got me interested. Plus football is what I have been doing all of my life. That’s what I know and I wanted to give back to the community. Sports are what I do. It’s right up my alley.

What is the reaction you get from kids having a former NFL player helping out?

It’s big, especially me coming from Hawaii. It kind of gives them hope. What has been happening lately is there is a big boom of Polynesian players getting drafted or a shot at the NFL. It’s been good. I never got to visit with any Polynesian professional football players. They usually all stayed on the mainland after the season. I saw them on television but never got to meet them. This is a good way to show them a face and show the kids that they can make it too.

What is the fondest memory from your playing career?

I would have to say when I used to drive to Three Rivers Stadium and I would come in with a broken down car. It was the only old car to pull up. Everybody else had the up-to-date brand new cars but when I would pull in the fans would still be excited to see me. That was huge. I will never forget that. What great fans.

What was your best game?

I didn’t get to play much so that’s hard. I would say a game against Cleveland when I scored. I played a lot on special teams, more than I did on offense. But at the end Amos Zereoue hurt his shoulder and they put me in at the end.
