Fifteen Kahuku High and Intermediate students received college athletic scholarships for the upcoming school year – 13 for football and two for soccer – one of the highest number of academic-sports scholarships in the school’s 118-year history.

Fifteen Kahuku High and Intermediate students received college athletic scholarships for the upcoming school year – 13 for football and two for soccer – one of the highest number of academic-sports scholarships in the school’s 118-year history. Among the 13 is one girl – soccer scholarship recipient Maila Aluli, who will attend Fort Lewis College in Colorado. Classmate Alohi Gilman is the only student in Hawaii who was offered a scholarship to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., Gilman’s father confirmed. No more than two students per state receive scholarships from each military academy yearly.
Valued at around $500,000, Gilman’s scholarship spares him and his family from all out-of-pocket college-related expenses, said his father, Asai Gilman. After graduating from Annapolis, Gilman will start his first-year job at no less than an $80,000 salary. In his second year, his pay jumps to at least $130,000 annually, Gilman said.

The 17-year-old All-Star defensive back received six other scholarship offers, including one from the Army’s West Point. Gilman was picked for his leadership ability, grades and test scores.

The military panel also judged the teen’s communications based on his social media presence, text messages, emails, phone calls and in-person speaking. “They liked his professionalism and the way he presented himself,” Gilman added.

“I’m very pleased with the number of college opportunities that are offered to our student-athletes,” said KHIS Principal Pauline Masaniai. “Congratulations to our graduating seniors, who are making college and career connections.”

Gilman leaves Hawaii in July. He will major in engineering and also focus on cyber warfare.
