We caught up with University of Hawai’i basketball great Carl English during his visit to Hawai’i for the first time in over 14 years. English is in town to be the honorary captain for the Rainbow Warriors’ final home game of their centennial season.
“The big thing for me that represents Hawai’i, it’s not the weather, it’s not the island, it’s the people. The people made me feel at home, made me feel like one of theirs.”
– Carl English
He also talked about his recently released memoir ‘Chasing a Dream, The Carl English Story’, which tells the story of the Newfoundland basketball phenom’s unimaginable tragedies and perseverance to make a dream become a reality. Get your copy on Amazon or Flanker Press.
“Carl English has a story that won’t disappoint. Watching his career, I was always drawn to the spark and confidence I could feel through the TV. A hot streak was always right around the corner, and his bravado was magnetic. Beloved by his national team teammates for his sense of humor and quick tongue, everyone’s got a ‘Carl story.’”
