On a mission

June 25th, 2009

June Jones and Greg McMackin were among a group that left for Pago Pago this afternoon and will hold the second American Samoa Football Academy and Medical Mission over the next two days.
Also going on the mission, sponsored by the June Jones Foundation, were former Hawaii linemen Jesse Sapolu, Maa Tanuvasa, Taase Faumui, Tony Tuioti and Samson Satele. UH graduate assistant Craig Stutzmann and Jack “The Throwin’ Samoan” Thompson are also participating.
The free football clinic is expected to draw close to 1,000 high school players. The mission will also provide close to $400,000 in medical supplies. The medical mission is led by Ellie Taft, the wife of former UH and current SMU assistant Jeff Reinebold.
