Player Profile: Thomas Kaluna Nihipali
Duke & Kamaile Nihipali are the parents of Thomas Kaluna Nihipali. Kaluna transferred back to Kahuku last year from St. Louis. He is a senior from the class of 2018 and plays defensive back and special teams.
Kaluna is a very engaging young man and it was a pleasure to talk to him even for just a little bit. He beamed when asked about his Merrie Monarch experience. Yes, you heard me right, last year Kaluna was able to participate in the annual Merrie Monarch festival on the Big Island with his halau from St. Louis.
Have a great year Kaluna!
