WILLIAMSPORT (HawaiiNewsNow) - Supporting his younger brother in Williamsport was Iolana Akau.

He's a member of the 2008 Waipio team that won it all.

Akau was even spotlighted in an ESPN interview during the Little League World Series.

Two years ago, he was one of the heroes, homering in the title game against Mexico.

And throughout Waipio's run this year, little brother Kaho'ea has been following in his brother's footsteps with some solid defensive and offensive plays.

"It just shows how talented he is and what he can do for a little kid like him, he showed everyone what he can do. I'm just proud of them and I'm sure everyone else is back home", said Iolana.

He adds that he and his dad work with little brother often.

And as you saw in the championships, Kaho'ea proved good things come in small packages.
