'What's your dream job?' Kalamalama asks HPU athletes about their "dream job"

by Derek Clarkston, '04

 

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?” Yet the winner of Dream Job is just like any other college student.

Well, almost like any other college student.

At the end of the 2003-04 school year, what did athletes at HPU hope for as their sports dream job? Here’s what some of them said.

 
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.”
