Wilson is doing something greater than himself by Serving His Country

Harold Wilson

When I was in graduate school at the University of Hawaii Manoa, more than 40 years ago, I lived in a wooden duplex on the side of Punchbowl and made friends with my neighbors, Herman and Dorothy Wilson.

The Wilson’s were an older couple and from time to time they would take care of their grandson who was an active little toddler.

This toddler would scamper around the area as he enjoyed a variety of make believe games, which included playing ‘army’.

Last year at the Veteran’s Day 5K in Hilo an active duty National Guardsman, stationed at the Pohakuloa Training Area came up to me and asked a surprising statement.

“I think you knew my grandparents,” he said.

To my astonishment, standing before me was a grown man who looked to be in top shape, by the name of Harold ‘Mokuahi’ Wilson.

His grandparents have since passed, but their legacy was standing before me and preparing to walk to the starting line and challenge me in a 3.1 mile race.

Growing up Wilson played and fell in love with baseball, which he got from his grandfather and father, who both stayed active with community league softball well into their later year.

“I loved doing outdoor activities as I came from a baseball family and I played little league,” Wilson said.  “I did lots of stuff outdoors and as a child I like to play ‘Army.’

His love for playing Army evolved into the real thing as he enlisted in the United States Marine Corp in 1994 and switched to the Hawaii Army National Guard in 1998 to present.

“I want to do something greater than myself,” Wilson said.  “I want to serve my country and be the best of the best.”

Alicia and Harold

Wilson knew that the military would challenge him and has devoted nearly two decades to service.

“I knew that the Corp would challenge me more than I have ever been challenged and my love for running started in the Marines,” he said.

Wilson is a Staff Sergeant in the Army National Guard on Active Orders at Pohakuloa Training Area.

“I’ve served multiple tours to Iraq with a light infantry scout platoon,” Wilson said.  “The most difficult part of deployments is being away from my family.”

When not on deployment Wilson likes to work out in the nearest gym as he gets in a good sweat.

“Running has always been my best way to deal with stress and after a good run my focus seems clearer,” he said. 

At the Veterans Day 3.1 mile run Wilson encouraged several of his fellow soldiers to come out and run including his wife Alicia and their 10 year old son Austin.

“I am a self motivator and I love to motivate others, “he said.  “If you can motivate then anything can be accomplished.”

Wilson also has a home gym and at work at PTA there are three fully functional gyms.

“My home has a variety of weights, sit up bar, heavy bag,  speed bag, free standing bag for kicking as I like to mix it up to maximize muscle confusion,” Wilson said.  “Besides these I maintain pushups and sit ups to meet Army standards.”

Wilson also runs at PTA where the air is thin and makes it more difficult to move.

“It’s a real challenge to run at Pohakuloa due to the high elevation,” he said.  “I’m in no way a body builder or marathon runner, but I am looked up to and always strive to serve as a role model for my soldiers.”

“Being in the military gives me a good reason to take care of myself,” Wilson said. “I strive to not only push myself but the soldiers I serve with.”

A 1989 graduate of Waiakea High School, Wilson is married and has five children and just days before this interview he turned 41 years of age.

“With all the stress of being in the military, I find that running and exercising is a good way to deal with that stress,” Wilson said.

I’ve made some adjustments to my diet and have switch from white to brown rice,” he said.  I try to avoid sweets and eat lots of greens.”

When a hunger attack hits, Wilson will curb that void by eating some almonds or having a triscuit with tuna and lettuce.

“My favorite dinner would be a quarter pound of poke with about a half cup of brown rice,” he said.  “For drinks it’s water and 100 percent pink grapefruit juice.”

Wilson’s overall goal is to lose some weight and when he does overeat he will get out and push himself a little harder the next day.

Alicia and I made New Year Resolution’s to improve our overall health,” Wilson said.  “Alicia is giving up smoking and I’m giving up beer!”

The Wilson’s have made a pact to help each other quit their bad habits and they try to motivate each other in a positive direction.

“The kids help keep an eye on mom and they will let me know if she is about to smoke,” he said with a grin. 

I’m sure that Harold ‘Mokuahi’ Wilson’s grandparents are watching over him and they are smiling and proud to see the man that he has turned into.

And someday should you happen to see a Vietnam Veteran jogging through the streets of East Hawaii remember to smile, say ‘woof’ and never shy away from “Running with the Big Dog.”    Email the Big Dog at waiakeabigdog@aol.com.

Hilo’s Atagi goes 3 rounds against state champion Akoakoa Paleka-Kennedy

Atagi
Paleka-Kennedy

In the land of Giants, opportunities presented itself with a Viking trying to slay the Warrior King.

Kamehameha’s defending heavy weight wrestling state champion, Akoakoa Paleka-Kennedy, made his way to the mat on Saturday in the final match of the day to face Hilo’s Zachary Atagi in a battle of the 285 pound weight division.

“I’m kind of relaxed,” Atagi said before his match with Paleka-Kennedy.  “He has more experience than me and he is the state champion, I am just hoping I don’t tense up.”

To quell his nerves Atagi tells jokes to one of his coaches, Mike Mandaquit, in order to keep his mind off facing the best wrestler in the state.

“I plan on fighting power with power and I can’t let him try to overpower me, as I’m hoping to just wrestling him,” Atagi continued.

Atagi brought an 8-1 record to the mat against the state champion, while Paleka-Kennedy came to the mat with an unblemished 5-0 record winning all of his matches by pins.

“He (Paleka-Kennedy) is just like any other guy, as anybody can win and this is a match that I have been looking forward to.”

Paleka Kennedy sat out the first few weeks of the season because of his fluctuating weight which put him over the 285 limit.

During the match the Viking gave the Warrior every bit of a match going the full three rounds as Paleka-Kennedy won on points by a score of 11-2.

“He (Atagi) is very balanced and had good stand up,” Paleka-Kennedy said after the grueling match.  “He was strong and hard to take down.”

Atagi scored his two points with an escape and Paleka-Kennedy scored with three takedowns and escapes.

“I don’t want to be overconfident going into a match and I don’t want to take any one lightly,” Paleka Kennedy said.  “He (Atagi) is the best wrestler I’ve faced this season.”

Atagi was ecstatic about his ability to go against the state champion.

“For the most part I’m please to go all three rounds against the best in the state,” Atagi said.  “Of course, I would have wanted to win as I go into every match to win.”

Atagi comes from a wrestling family as his dad was a state runner up for Waialua High School on Oahu.

“My dad coached both of my current Hilo High coaches,” Atagi said.  “He also helps me a lot, along with my other coaches.”

Coach Kalawe
Nishimoto-Noguchi

Viking Coach Alex Kalawe was pleased with his team’s performance as the opportunities presented itself on the mat.
“All of our kids are getting really tough challenges today,” Kalawe said.  “Most of the schools are trying to set up the best matches which will go on to making the kids better and more successful later.”

Another Viking, Trent Hashimoto-Noguchi at 130 had his hands full dropping his first match to a Keaau opponent on points.

“I just got tired and didn’t have the energy to finish that first match,” Hashimoto-Noguchi said.  “I need to be better prepared by rehydrating and putting some food into myself.”

In his second match Hashimoto-Noguchi rebounding winning by pin in the third round as he used a tilt, gaining control, then pushing his opponent onto his back, bringing his overall BIIF record to 6-4.

Lee
Kanekanui

The Lady Viks made the most of their opportunities with Kainoe Lee gaining an impressive victory over a talented Kamehameha Jasmine Iuta at 155.

“Jasmine beat me last week and today I won by a score of 8-2,” Lee said.  “I came into this match with more confidence and I felt good warming up as I was really motivated.”

Lee’s only two losses this season came at the hands of Iuta as she ran her league record to 8-2.

“I just came in more aggressive than in the past and I wanted to take control,” Lee said.  “I was also more relaxed and I know that Jasmine is the best competition that I have in this weight class.”

Teammate Lahi Kanakanui won an exciting match over Waiakea’s Kanani Silva, in overtime.

“The match was tied at 5 all at the end of regulation,” Kanakanui said.  “In overtime she (Silva) went for a shot and I sprawled and then circled around for the win.”

Choi

While Hilo was hosting an East Division wrestling tournament Hawaii Preparatory Academy hosted the West.

Undefeated in BIIF competition is Ka Makani Troy Choi at 215 who beat both his Honokaa opponents to run his record to 15-0.

“In my first match I wrestled Christian Silva and pinned him in the second round using a duck under and then moving into a backward high crotch,” Choi said.  “My second match was against Kainoa Lyman who bumped up from 189.”

“I pinned Kainoa in the third round using a chicken wing, running it to the right and then flipping him onto his back, Choi said.

Choi, a senior, credits most of his success to sticking with the HPA wrestling program for all four years.

“I got beat up as a freshman and paid my dues,” Choi said.  “Most of my opponents now are younger and still need to pay their dues as their skill level is below mine.”

Choi was the BIIF runner up last season and looks to vie for the title this year in his weight class.

The BIIF wrestling venue moves to Kealakehe on Saturday with an all schools meet starting at 10 am.
