Hawaii offers scholarship to Titan Lacaden, fifth-grade QB

Hawaii offers scholarship to Titan Lacaden, fifth-grade QB

An 11-year-old quarterback was offered a scholarship by the University of Hawaii on Saturday. Titan Lacaden, a fifth grader from Kapolei, Hawaii, took to Twitter to share the news that he had received a verbal offer from Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich.

Lacaden is a native of Hawaii and the younger brother of former Nevada linebacker Jake Lacaden. Rolovich was the offensive coordinator for part of Jake's time at Nevada, so there is familiarity with the family.

Lacaden's father, Frank, is also a local youth and high school coach who works with a group called the All Blacks Crusaders. The group travels around Hawaii playing flag and tackle football with youth ages 4 to 14.

Frank Lacaden took his Titan and the All Blacks Crusaders to the University of Hawaii's football camp on Saturday and met with Rolovich after the camp was over.

"(Rolovich) said he likes Titan and what he does. We both agreed that he's different, he carries himself differently," Frank Lacaden said. "They said they want to offer a scholarship and asked me how I felt about it. I know what my older son went through in the recruiting process and it's difficult, especially with us being in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. So when opportunity knocks, you answer the door."
