Congratulations, Steelers’ Chris Kemoeatu

Congratulations to Pittsburg Steeler OL Chris Kemoeatu of Kahuku — all-state defensive lineman and Kahuku Red Raider who went on to play for the University of Utah before the NFL drafted him. It was very satisfying to watch him start and play most of the game which the whole world now knows Pittsburg won in the final minutes. The experience was made more enjoyable by watching the game on our new 60″ HDTV.

I didn’t notice Laie’s Aaron Francisco — who went on from Kahuku to play at BYU and then for the Phoenix Cardinals — during the game, but in subsequent photos it’s clear he was right there in the end zone when the Steelers took away what everybody thought was the Cardinals’ come-from-behind victory in the closing moments of the game.

Congratulations to both of them…and to the great football tradition at Kahuku High. It’s still amazing to think that two Red Raiders were players in Super Bowl XLIII.
