This weekend at Ching Field on the campus of the University of Hawaii, a handful of former UH standouts will hit the field, opening the 808 Passing Academy.

The brainchild of former Rainbow Warrior Quarterback Sean Schroeder, the main motivation behind the camp according to its mission statement is to provide current high school quarterbacks and wide receivers within the State of Hawaii the necessary skills and resources to maximize not only their athletic potential but also their academic potential.

Coaches that are scheduled to take part in the academy are Sean Schroeder, Vince Passas, Jeremy Higgins, Cayman Shutter, Jeremiah Cockheran, Jeremiah Ostrowski, Garrett Gabriel, and Ashley Lelie.

Former UH receiver Cockheran realyed the message that “The end goal is to assist these individuals in the pursuit of a college education by way of their athletic and academic accomplishment, with the hope that these athletes will use their degrees to better their lives as well as their communities. In addition, 808 Passing Academy will mentor these athletes to become leaders and role models at their schools and within their communities.”

808 Passing Academy is designed to be a non-for-profit camp. Campers will attend the Academy free of charge as long as they meet the minimum requirements to attend.
