John is one of the top Centers in the country. It would be awesome if he got invited to the college football awards show and won the Rimington award.

This guy is tough as nails. I've watched him stonewall some blitzing LBs.
All-WAC for sure this year barring injury.

June jones said he might be the best o-lineman hes ever had.
of course JJ said that timmy chang was the best QB and stuff like that...but i think Estes really will be one of the best to play at Hawaii by the time hes done here.
The Miami Dolphins fans are raving about how good Samson Satele is and that Hawaii produces a lot of good o-linemen...Estes is gonna be proof of that (knock on wood)

Impressive. Hope he comes back for his senior year. Will have an opportunity to play on Sundays.

He and Lafu have been steady on that OL.

By far the best Center in the WAC. He should be a finalist for the best center award, IMO.
