'What's your dream job?' Kalamalama asks HPU athletes

by Derek Clarkston, Sports editor

ESPN’s reality TV show, Dream Job, climaxed with a bright-eyed, 21-year-old college student, Mike Hall, wining a one-year Sportscenter contract worth $95,000.

Is their any better job in sports then being an anchor on the “big show?” The winner of Dream Job is just like any other college student, well almost like any other college student. So what do athletes at HPU think a sports dream job would be? Here is what I found out by asking some of them.

 

Gabor Jaross, junior, tennis
“ I would want to be a sports psychologist, because I’m really interested in the cycle of how to motivate people, how to make them concentrate and stay focused.”

Jay Bussey, senior, basketball
“ A sports agent, because you get to deal with athletes on a day to day basis. Plus you get to work on commission and sign big name athletes.”

Loni Matsunaga, senior, tennis
“ I would want to be a sports broadcaster, because it’s fun and it’s a job that would keep me involved in the game.”

Lucas “Tex” Walls, senior, soccer
“ I would play football or soccer. I would much rather play sports than be an analyst and sit there. If I wasn’t playing sports anymore, I would get out of sports.”

Briana Marinas, sophomore, volleyball
“ I would play professional volleyball, because I love volleyball and would like to stay involved in the game. Maybe I will even coach it someday.”
