Whitesox, listen to Gov. Also, pretty sure Fitzgerald has fewer slots with admissions than some other HA academic schools. Also, if he doesn't follow up with you after he's seen you play, and you've let him know UC is your top choice, then move on. There are other great options out there.
One other thought. Try the SAT in addition to retaking the ACT. My son scored 27 on ACT his first go around, too, then after having a tutor for six months, scored a 28. Yippee. But then he took the old SAT a month later and got a 1440 which at the time = a 33/34 on the ACT. Go figure.
