KSH '20 alumnus Wilde Germano is hosting a football camp for Hawaiʻi Island students on June 1 at Paiʻea.

Alumni Presence: KSH 2020 graduate gives back through the sport he loves

May 13, 2024

Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi Hīhīmanu a Kāne class of 2020 alumnus Wilde Germano is passionate about football and giving back to and serving his community. Through his Hoʻomau Football Camp, he gets to answer the call and do both. 

A standout athlete for our Warriors, he continued his excellence and leadership at Colorado State University Pueblo where he was recently given the Student Athlete Award in their 2024 Spring Ball Awards. He will be completing his Master’s degree in Business Administration this Fall. 

The Hoʻomau Football Camp is an extension of a senior legacy project he started here with his lineman camp. All ages are welcome to attend and the camp is offered free of charge, though each athlete is asked to bring a canned good with them for donation when checking in. 

“We chose to name this camp HO’OMAU because of the perseverance it takes to make it to the next level of football coming from the Big Island,” shares Germano. “We believe that we can compete with anyone in the country.”

From his description of the camp: 
Hoomau is the Hawaiian word encouraging us to carry on. It means to be steady, constant, enduring, persevering, and unceasing. Those who ho'omau do not give up, especially when the going gets hard. They know that, in most cases, the best things in life are not easily won. Those who live hoomau are resilient against opposition. They don't worry about what others say to them or about them. They are focused on their goals, knowing that they can do it with faith in God and balance in their lives. At the same time, they know that some things require sacrifice, but the reward will be worth it.

The camp takes place on Saturday, June 1 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Paiʻea Stadium

There are three different sessions throughout the day based on grade level - 

  • Elementary(Grades K-5) from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. 
  • Middle (Grades 6-8) from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • High School (Grades 9-12) from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The camp will feature coaches who are KSH Alumni and have played collegiate football. 

Come and learn from those who came from the same places you have and have played in big time games at the next level. 

Participants can register for the camp here. Questions, DM Wilde on his instagram (wi1de_g)
