BYU Gets 'Jewel of Hawaiian High School Football'

HONOLULU, HAWAII -- Aaron Francisco, first-team all-state defensive back from Kahuku High in Honolulu, Hawaii made a verbal commitment to accept a scholarship from Brigham Young University. The 6-foot-4, 190 pound Francisco was considered the jewel of the Hawaiian high school football recruiting class and is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Speaking of BYU Francisco said, "I just like the whole environment there....the school, the facilities."

Francisco helped lead the Red Raiders to their first state championship last December. "Aaron is one of those total package guys. Great in the classroom, great on the field," said Kahuku coach Siuaki Livai. "His athletic ability is all there and his attitude is great. He knows his responsibilities and exceeds it."

During recent playoffs Francisco added duties as a part-time wide receiver from playing safety and returning kicks and punts. He was liked by coaches as a safety or a receiver and will play safety for the Cougars.

In the final decision it was Hawaii, Washington and Arizona. "It came down to BYU and Arizona," he said. "It's a relief. Now I can focus on basketball. That's good, since we're heading into the playoffs pretty soon."
