T.E.A.M. Hiki No is humbled, honored, & thankful to share that our very own Club Director, Kyle Dobashi, was selected to join the staff of “Fa’a Samoa Initiative” founded by former Pittsburgh Steeler & NFL Superstar Troy Polamalu & wife Theodora this past June in Pago Pago, American Samoa. As part of a select group of staff & coaches from 3 strands (Football, Volleyball, Academics/Life skills), the opportunity to share & grow the game with the youth of Samoa was a lifelong DREAM… turned – REALITY! The lives impacted & touched on the island has & will continue to span further & wider than the week long trip. Former US Volleyball Olympians Allen Allen, Logan Tom, current USAV Coach John Kessel, & a handful of other HS & Collegiate coaches from around the country made up the ‘Volleyball Staff’.
On Tuesday Nov 3, NFL Films will be featuring the documentary that they shot on-site@4p PST on Fox Sports 1. Coach Kyle would like to personally thank his dear friend Allen Allen for the invite & also providing the opportunity to be a part of this special event. “I’ve learned, grown, & appreciate this experience just as much as those we shared it with and for during our week in American Samoa. I am forever grateful for the opportunity & will continue to be diligent & relentless in my pursuit to share & grow the game that has given me so much”! Congrats again to Coach Kyle & as always… HIKI NO!!!
