June Jones – “Love is the Difference” – TWP005

In 1998, the University of Hawaii was ranked 112th out of 112 teams in the NCAA.  Having lost for 18 straight games, they were at a bottom and had little hope for a turnaround.  So they turned to an adopted son: NFL coach June Jones.  Taking a huge career risk, June accepted the challenge and stepped in to make some changes.  But those changes had less to do with building a new field tactic than it did with building a new kind of community.

We proudly present to you the story of the single greatest turnaround in college football history: the 1999 Hawaii Warriors.  Mahalo.
