 Despite a few differences most people have a hard time telling them apart unless they're wearing their Football Jerseys!  From the time I was pregnant with Jaron and Kennan they could never sit still. As babies they were always very active!  When they were 5 years old we put them onto a Rugby team, and quickly noticed how fast they could run! We loved watching these little guys run circles around their team mates on the field.34190828_1541219391319538_r.jpeg 
Four years ago we moved to Utah from the Big Island of Hawaii when the boys were 8 years old. There wasn't a Rugby league for their age at the time so we thought we try them out for Football. Jaron cried and hated that idea, and after looking at the cost for both boys to play, I hated it too. I later got a phone call back from The Head Football Coach " Rex" !  He says "Why'd you leave?  Before I could explain he said "How 'bout I pay for one kid you pay for the other boy and bring them both to tryouts?" I agreed and took them to tryouts.  The coaches were impressed with their athleticism having never played football before.  They were both picked as Running Backs for Copper Hills A League.  It was their first year and  Along with their team they had an undefeated season where they took  2016 Championships against Kearns.

 They soon found a New found love for Football and it wasn't long before they were nicknamed "The Flying Hawaiians"! They joined the Herriman Mustangs a year ago. Their Team had a  Beautiful Undefeated 2018 Season Winning Another Well Deserved Championship Game against Bingham.

Why we created a Gofundme?

Jaron and Kennan were invited to Try out for a Spot on the Utah All Stars Football league. There were over 100 +  of Utah's finest Youth Athletes that showed up to Tryouts at West High School in Salt Lake City. They had an opportunity  to go against other Elite players from all over Utah to showcase their talents and skills on the Field.
Jaron and Kennan were both selected alongside 35 other Elite 6th graders to be on the Pro Football Hall of Fame Utah All Stars league.  They will be representing the entire STATE OF UTAH and of course playing their hearts out for Hawaii and Herriman City where they are from!  With two Athletes, and a big family to provide for it's expensive! These kinds of opportunities don't come around often and we would LOVE your support to raise enough money to get them there!
