His tape was impressive on both sides of the ball. I'm betting he plays OLB or a rover type position that plays run first bc that range and tackling in space is lacking in the defense.
Be humble and confident in yourself and all things you do. :zook:

For almost 15 years we've either gotten guys from Oaks Christian or recruit there heavily. Coach Abe must have the hookups because he's the most tenured coach here

Wow, solid. I should give his father credit for brining up a son with that much determination, etc.

Going OT. Will it be green and black or green and white? I noticed that at the press conference first, like it was another jab at JJ. As it was JJ that started green and black.

@honu888:

Normally I post only on the high school sports section, but I saw your post on the opening page of Sportshawaii. As a UH alumnus, I regret that the football team is using green and black unis. The school colors are green and white. When I was at UH in the late-'70s, the unis were the correct colors: Green and white. I just wanted to post my regret that the unis now aren't really displaying the proper colors.

@cabanalane:

Yes, it was Jones who started using black on the unis; I remember. I wasn't thrilled by that. I guess you could call me a purist when it comes to unis. Seems to me that they should be in the school's actual colors. I mean, why shouldn't they be?

It's sort of like Chow brought back the "Rainbow Warriors." Both Rolo and Chang were never "Rainbow Warriors." I wonder how those who feel strongly about "Warriors" also feel about "Go Bows."

I'm sure Chang will go with Warriors.

Either case, I'm sure there are bigger issues to tackle aside of name and uniform colors. There's probably no $$$$ in the budget for a change anyhow. So I'm sure everything will be the same. Just wondering if #15 GOAT will stay on the helmets?

@cabanalane:

Good points you've made. When I was at UH in the late-'70s, it was, Rainbows. And, yes, the chant back then was, "Go Bows". I hope Chang gets back to how things were in the late-'70s. After all, as a St Louis alumnus, would he like to see St Louis unis in blue and black? Probably not. And, would he like their nickname changed to, "Crusader Warriors"? I doubt it. Chang needs to take UH's unis back to the late-'70s. And, I hope the black helmets will disappear quickly enough. When I was at UH, the helmets were white. If Chang wants, he can order green ones, or go with white. Please, no black. Would Chang like it if St Louis started wearing black helmets? I'd imagine not. St Louis is blue and red, not blue and black. UH is green and white, not green and black. It's time some color propriety reigned with regard to UH's unis and helmets. It's not too late; it's never too late to go back to what's right. What's more, it's all so simple; you don't have to have taken AP Cal to do it.
