Gifford suspended

Post by Irse »

Another big loss.
Defensive tackle Ka‘aumoana Gifford has been suspended for the University of Hawaii football team’s 2017 season, head coach Nick Rolovich confirmed to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Rolovich said the suspension is “due to violation of team rules.”

Rolovich declined to specify the infraction. But he acknowledged it is the university that imposed the suspension.

Rolovich said Gifford’s football scholarship has been rescinded. There is a possibility he may rejoin the team in 2018.

The violation does not involve any criminal or academic issues.

I'm surprised it took so long for this info to get out.

Bummer. We got some solid linebackers and safeties ... so we need big bodies on dline.

Another big boy bites the dust. Lineman are falling by the wayside and we haven't even made it to Fall camp yet.

The Star Advertiser one-liner was not really a great explanation. Here's a better article.

My guess is that he won't return in 2018. Time to move on and recruit players who play by the rules.

If Kaau graduates from Southwestern Baptist University, he could possibly return for his senior year as a graduate transfer

At least he's still playing, and someone gave him an opportunity. Hope that he cleans up his act with his third chance.
