Our starter went down, but our coach told us never to blink. He said always prepare like you're a starter. It was my chance to get out there and show what I could do.

On his Hawaii fans: 

I love you guys.  That's where I'm from, that's where my roots are. Without their support, I couldn't do this right now.

The win still hasn't hit me. It came down to the last second. You can't describe how I'm feeling.  I'm on cloud nine

It was awesome.  I cheered so much, I lost my breath. It was great.

It definitely helped me.  I don't know how much, but in our practice, we train like we're a starter.  When this day comes, I'll be ready.
