Who knows the last time Waianae put out a Div 1 football player? Must be years ago. The Waianae football program is a shell of its former self.
Oh, that 1973 Washington team was no powerhouse. The finshed that year 2-9. I remember that day's Star Bulletin had the UH win in bold on the front page.

Levi Stanley. He was truly a monster on the field. Very dominating.

I believe Levi played in the CFL for several years. I might be wrong.

Geordon Hanohano's (2008 -)hometown is listed as Waianae. You also forget that Hawaii was not a DIV I team back then. Hawaii really should not have been on the same field with the Huskies, especially at Husky Stadium in front of 52,500 screaming Husky fans. But they won. Hawaii had a running back named Albert Holmes who also played a great game.

Same question I had. Other questions I have: What is he doing now? Is he still a teacher? Does he live in Hawaii?

Extremely poor writing. The writer gave the background where Stanley came from. Then, he talked about his career at UH. Then, the story was abruptly cut, and leaves the reader hanging.

Sorry you think the writing is not good. Sometimes there's not enough space to get every detail in. Click on Stanley's name under the story and you get the football card that has more info, including what he's doing now.

Or, you could always buy a paper, and then the card with the information under it is right there with the story.

Levi Stanley is still a very honorable, man with a very good work ethic and an internal drive that would make the most energetic person seem like they are going slow. His athletic ability is only a small part of this man, but it is his personal character and willingness to help anyone in need that is what I believe is his greatest asset. Levi gave us many exciting moments on the football field, but being his friend is something to cherish. Thanks Levi for the memories of the past and for the ones to come in the future.

Levi Stanley played in the WFL for "the Hawaiians". That I know for sure.
He was a NFL draft pick. I think 18th round by the 49'ers. But I could be wrong there. I'm not sure if he played in the NFL. 18th round picks usually didn't make the team back then. But back then, scouting wasn't what it is now, and so back in the ealry 70's you saw late round picks from tiny colleges make it big in the NFL.

Thanks for the link, Dave. The reason I made my comments is because, in almost every other profile that has been done thus far, the writer has always included a couple of sentences to say what the former player is currently doing.
