HONOLULU, Hawaii — More than 800 people were at the University of Hawaii Sunday morning to attend an annual camp run by Seahawks' defensive lineman Michael Bennett. For the Seattle standout, the camp is about more than just football.
"A lot of times people just want to talk to you about football. To be able to talk to kids about life, school, community and health is something I really want to empower young athletes to use their platform for." ~ Michael Bennett, Seattle Seahawks
Hokulea reawakened Polynesian voyaging, Pacific exploration
HONOLULU, Hawaii -- Polynesian voyaging was near extinction when, in the 1970s, a group of traditional navigators, scientist and explorers founded the Polynesian Voyaging Society to revive traditional wayfinding and exploration. Shortly afterward, the voyaging canoe Hokulea was built. It had been 600 years since the last wave of Pacific voyaging.
“We are in the wake of our ancestors and the heart of all of this is exploration. Every time we voyage, we grow, we learn new things.”
~ Bruce Blankenfeld, Hokulea captain and navigator

"Brandyn Lynch is sharp, powerful and can move. If he continues fighting he will be a world champion."
