Last Thursday Ako Kaluna of West Ranch High School in Valencia, California shattered the backboard in a tournament game in Santa Monica. The senior goes 6-foot-8 and about 270 and is commited to Northern Arizona. Based on his size, the football coaches at Northern Arizona may want to take a look at him too. Kaluna is averaging 19.3 and 14.7 rebounds per game on the season and his team won that playoff game against the defending state champions.
When asked about the dunk by the Daily News he said: “It was awesome.” I have to agree. Good luck to them in the rest of the tournament.
