Keith Uperesa doing well

July 9th, 2010

About a year ago we reported alarming news about Keith Uperesa, the former Punahou great and then an assistant football coach at UNLV. Uperesa was battling two different cancers while also dealing with a diagnosis of diabetes.

We caught up with him when Hawaii played at UNLV in September, and he was recovering well from surgery and radiation therapy. Today, he’s still healthy, and completes a three-week stay in Hawaii. Uperesa is now on the staff at Nicholls State and returns to Thibodaux, La., to begin preparations for the season.

“Last year was a rough year,” he said. “Things are a lot better now.”

There was some sad irony for him on this trip home, though. On his first day back in Hawaii, Uperesa attended a memorial service for his close friend and Punahou teammate, Mosi Tatupu. Tatupu died in February. Last year when he learned of Uperesa’s health problems, Tatupu spearheaded a fund-raiser to help him and his family.

“Anyone who knows Mosi knows that’s the kind of person he always was,” Uperesa said. “A great friend. He was very comforting.

“I had a great visit with (Tatupu’s son) Lofa and (wife) Linnea at the memorial at Punahou,” he added.

Uperesa said he’s still “adjusting to the bayou.” He said he is recruiting three former Hawaii high school football players who are now in junior colleges on the mainland.

“Our school president hired Tommy Lee at Montana-Western, so he knows about Hawaii football,” Uperesa said.

    Very nice post. I agree totally that there is a lack of action and awareness on the severity of threat our free Internet is suffering right now. It is a huge enabler, please let’s keep it this way. Trying to cage it’s power with oppression and regulation is not going to do us much good. Those that want bad will always find a way around these digital gates and toothless paper regulations. It is the average Joe and Jane that will suffer from the suggested laws now under revision. The world is changing and the cooperating and cocreating spirit of the Internet adopters is helping us massively. I think that the mainstream Internet users should be made more aware of what is going on, so that through a democratic process smart, usefull and helpfull descisions can be made to make the Internet a safer place that will remain free and open. One last thing. I think that not only security should be bonded with freedom, but also responsebility. Involving the grand masses in maintaining freedom, security and responsebility on the net will be the game changer in the coming few years. But that is just my personal assumption.Please keep up the good work, and help to keep the Internet a free and safe medium for all peoples.
