A lot of homework and a little luck has paid off handsomely for Clarence Okihiro.
Okihiro's work pays off
Okihiro's ballot, with eight of 10 picks correct, was selected as this week's Football Fever winner.
"I was really lucky," said Okihiro, whose only two wrong choices were NFL hard-luck losers Indianapolis and New Orleans.
But Okihiro admits more than luck was involved.
"I enjoy football and read as much as I can about the teams. I've been studying them for many years," he said.
Although he's a big Hawaii fan, he picked Rice because "I thought Rice's schedule was stronger and their option would give Hawaii trouble."
