Ex-Kahuku star Ah-Hoy to re­tire

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - BASEBALL REPORT - By Billy Hull bhull@starad­ver­tiser.com

Kahuku alum­nus Kesi AhHoy, who played five games as a true fresh­man at Ore­gon State last sea­son, is no longer listed on the ros­ter and has been forced to med­i­cally re­tire, sports in­for­ma­tion di­rec­tor Steve Fenk con­firmed Wed­nes­day.

Ah-Hoy is still on schol­ar­ship and tak­ing classes. He is help­ing the foot­ball team with re­cruit­ing.

A two-time first-team All­State se­lec­tion with the Red Raiders, Ah-Hoy made 11 tack­les with one tackle for loss in a lim­ited de­fen­sive role and on spe­cial teams for the Beavers last year. He also av­er­aged 20.4 yards on his five kick­off re­turns.

In high school, Ah-Hoy played quar­ter­back as a ju­nior and made the All-State first team as a util­ity player. Dur­ing his se­nior sea­son, Ah-Hoy was a first-team se­lec­tion as a safety.

Ah-Hoy had com­mit­ted to Hawaii be­fore open­ing up his re­cruit­ment in the fi­nal two months and even­tu­ally de­cided to sign with Ore­gon State.

He was one of nine Hawaii high school grad­u­ates on the OSU ros­ter last sea­son.

The Beavers cur­rently have seven Hawaii high school grad­u­ates on their ros­ter. Three will be red­shirt fresh­men next year — cor­ner­back Moku Wat­son (Leile­hua), of­fen­sive line­man Ones­imus Clarke (Wa­ianae) and line­backer Alexan­der Skel­ton (Pu­na­hou). The Beavers added of­fen­sive line­man Keli’i Mon­ti­bon, a ju­nior-col­lege trans­fer and Kame­hameha-Hawaii alum­nus, in the off­sea­son to join a ros­ter that in­cludes tight end Tuli Wily-Matagi (Kahuku) and de­fen­sive line­men LaMone Wil­liams (Kahuku) and Kalani Vakameilalo (Kapolei).

The Beavers also signed Saint Louis de­fen­sive back Isa­iah Tufaga, who will be a fresh­man next sea­son.
