A year or so ago some of you were following our oldest grandson's (now 23) high school and college football career. Here is an update.
After graduating from the Univ of Hawaii in May 2013 he got a job in Hawaii as a mortgage broker and stayed there. In addition to his day job as a mortgage broker, he also was hired by a high school in/near Honolulu to be their qb coach. He coached their 2013 season and did well. He did not give up his football dreams.
A week ago he flew to Germany and signed to play for the German Football League. He went to Cologne to play as qb for the Cologne team and also to be a qb coach. Last weekend -- after being there for only 4 days with the team -- they played their first game. As qb he scored 3 TDS and rushed 100 yds. They won 50-20.
He speaks and understands no German so living in Germany for almost 3 mo. is going to be an interesting experience for him. So far he is loving it and happy to be continuing with football. He'll be back sometime in Sept. and will return to Hawaii to be the qb coach for the Hawaii high school. He will also get his mortgage broker job back.
