Personal note: About 1960 or so, my namesake uncle was a young U.S. Marine Corps officer stationed in Hawaii. The Honolulu Advertiser used a political cartoon he drew. With this story I wrote on Army place-kicker Quinn Maretzki, the name Tom Shanahan is back in Hawaii’s newspaper.

Many people follow their favorite media personality on cable TV. Mark Maretztki is no different.

He favors Ross Tucker, the CBS Sports Network analyst for Army football. Maretzki wakes up early at his St. Louis Heights home for the noon Eastern Time kickoffs, 6 a.m. Hawaii.

“My dad loves listening to Ross Tucker,” chuckled Army place-kicker Quinn Maretzki, a Punahou grad. “He always raves about him.”
