How’s it going everybody from the island of Oahu where the Louisiana Tech football team has settled into the island life ahead of the 17th annual Hawai’i Bowl where the Bulldogs will take on the University of Hawai’i on Saturday night at Aloha Stadium.
Truth be told the transition to the tropics came with assistance with quite the tour guide with senior defensive back Daniel Lewis Jr.
The former Rainbow Warrior captain spent four seasons at UH earning his degree before transferring to his home state this past offseason.
For number 14, returning to Aloha Stadium for his final collegiate game is the story book finish that even he couldn’t write.
Lewis Jr. said, “Very special to be able to come back and finish it all off right where it started from is very special. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that this is how it would end. It was so surreal getting off that plane and letting it all sink in and I was like man I’m really back on the island right now, it’s crazy. I’m so grateful for my time here because it molded me so much as a man. I’ve learned so much. I’ve got to meat so many great people and had so many great experiences. I would never change my time what I had here. I know both my brothers from both teams are going to bring it to the table and they’re going to come to fight but after the game we’re going to all shake hands and hug it up and it’s going to be what it is.”
Now Lewis who has battled injuries this season is said to be at full strength and will be active on Saturday.
Remember kickoff for the Bulldogs and the Rainbow Warriors is set for 9:30pm Central time again that game takes place at Aloha Stadium.
