Aloha,

What an awesome show of support that our teams made for 2104 Damien grad Jacob Batalon and the new Spiderman movie.  I hope that it was as much of an inspiration for our boys as it was for me.  Three years ago he was walking the hallways at Damien not knowing what was in store for him and now a movie star.  It just shows that if you put in the hard work that you have a shot to make it big.  Congrats to Jacob on a great start to his professional career.  And thank you to all our boys for the big show of support.    

With just a few more weeks left for the varsity football to prepare for the pre-season, things are starting to heat up.  In one weeks time the boys will be putting helmets and shoulder pads on and getting ready for some real contact.  And a few short days later they will be facing their first competition of the year vs. Nanakuli and Kalaheo in a tri-scrimmage battle at Nanakuli field.  The boys are continuing to work really hard and are getting better each day and are looking forward to the challenges ahead.

Looking for a few good men..... As we approach football camp, we will be looking for a few fathers to volunteer their time to help chaperone and sleep over night during our fall camp.  The dates for fall camp are Thursday Jul 27 through Sunday Jul7 30.  If you are interested in helping out on any of these day, please contact me via email.  Klaneski@damien.edu.  

Don't forget the varsity football team will be playing two more pass scrimmages this week Tuesday @ 5:05 p.m. vs. Castle and Thursday @ 4:oo p.m. vs. Pac-5 at McKinley HS field.  Also, the intermediate team will be playing at McKinley on Wednesday, July 12 @ 4pm.  Please come down and show your support for our boys!
