Saddened to hear of the death of former Moanalua High School and University of Hawaii football star Heikoti Fakava. Fakava, who played for the Rainbows in the late 1980s, was one of the toughest college running backs I’ve ever seen.
Fakava was No. 72 in the Star-Bulletin’s series on the top 100 football players in UH history in 2009. Here’s the feature on Fakava that Jason Kaneshiro wrote for the series.
Sometimes athletes, coaches and fans do stupid things because they lose their cool in the heat of a tense game, or because they are frustrated over an outcome.
Amare Stoudamire punched a fire extinguisher glass container after his New York Knicks lost to the Miami Heat in the NBA Playoffs on Monday. Now he’s probably out for the series.
Where does this rank in the sports world of self-inflicted problems?
