Quarterback Club
honors QBs, others

By Dave Reardon


It was a good night to be a quarterback. Or a Chang. Or a quarterback named Chang.

Past and future Hawaii quarterbacks Dan Robinson and Timmy Chang were among the big award winners last night at the Honolulu Quarterback Club's Banquet of Champions at the Pacific Beach Hotel.

Robinson was named 1999's top male adult athlete, while Chang, the St. Louis School star who recently committed to Hawaii, won for top male prep athlete.

Another Chang, Punahou runner Victoria, won the prep female award.

Robinson made the most emotional acceptance speech, speaking of his wife Jill, who gave birth Saturday to their second child, a girl. He said if it wasn't for Jill's support he would have "headed back on the boat" a long time ago.

UH volleyball player Heather Bown won top adult female. Swimmer June Ford was named best senior female athlete.

Other awards went to UH football coach June Jones (Archer coach of the year), UH baseball coach Les Murakami (Blaisdell), Bob Young (Reynolds) and track official Al Rowan (Schuman).

The biggest cheers went to 97-year-old Erwin Jaskulski, a world-record setting age-group sprinter who was named the top senior male athlete of the year.
