"When opportunity knocks, you answer the door."
The University of Hawaii football program has reportedly offered a scholarship to QB Titan Lacaden, an 11-year old 5th grader.
Hawaii's coach Nick Rolovich was the offensive coordinator at Nevada when Titan's older brother, Jake Lacaden, was playing linebacker for the school.
Titan's father, Frank Lacaden, spoke about Rolovich offering his son a scholarship.
"[Rolovich] said he likes Titan and what he does. We both agreed that he's different, he carries himself differently," his father, Frank Lacaden, said, per Tom VanHaaren of ESPN.com.
"They said they want to offer a scholarship and asked me how I felt about it. I know what my older son went through in the recruiting process and it's difficult, especially with us being in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. So when opportunity knocks, you answer the door."
Titan, who has his own twitter account, tweeted about receiving a D1 offer to play for the Rainbow Warriors. His future coach, assuming Rolovich is still there in seven years, also took to twitter following the announcement to take a jab at FAU head coach Lane Kiffin.
