Cats land former All-American's offspring

The Maui News is reporting that former two time Tight End All-American and member of the 1984 national championship team, Keith Machida is sending his daughter to Linfield to be a 'Cat.

Chelsea Machida is standout diver and trackster (High Jump) for Maui High School. She'll be coming to Linfield to hit the oval for Garry Kilgor next spring. Add to the mix that Chelsea carries a 4.191 GPA and is ranked 2nd in her class. The Machida's must be very proud. I know that my folks might have done a standing back flip if I brought home a 4.191...instead of the blank look I would get when I handed over a 3.whatever.

“They (Chelse'a parents) wanted to make sure that I looked at all of my options, but when I finally chose Linfield they were excited for me,’’ Chelsea Machida said. “It was kind of like a legacy for me. It is a very different school from when they went, but I think they know it is moving forward.’’

Congrats to Chelsea and her family. Now can Keith please let us know if he has any sons...

It is sure sign of old age when you see the offspring of Wildcats past coming to Linfield.
