Grace gets NFL shot with Arizona
Two Kamehameha Schools graduates who played football at the University of Arizona will continue their careers in Arizona, though on different levels.
Steven Grace, a 6-2 1/2, 292-pound center, reached a free-agent contract agreement with the Arizona Cardinals. He was not selected in last weekend's seven-round NFL draft.
Grace also started five games at guard in 2001.
Teammate Makoa Freitas, a 6-3 1/2, 305-pounder, was granted another year of eligibility at the university through a medical hardship appeal because of a football injury in 2000.
Ma'ake Kemoeatu, a 6-4 1/2, 310-pound defensive tackle from Kahuku and the University of Utah, signed a free-agent contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
Jerry Togiai, a 6-3, 295-pound nose tackle from Roosevelt and Kansas State, will likely sign with the Atlanta Falcons.
Faaesea Mailo, a 6-3 1/4, 332-pound offensive lineman from Kahuku and USC, remains unsigned.
