Day 8, Allen-Joneses, Spring News, Kapanui (w/UPDATES)

Today is Day 8 of spring practices. Check the Warrior Beat or UH Sports Extra for live updates and/or wrap-ups.

UPDATE: Leila Wai reports that Rocky Savaiigaea has a fractured right tibia, and will miss the rest of spring practice.

UPDATE 2: Jason Kaneshiro reports that John Estes was back practicing today.
Jason reports that all-WAC center John Estes is back to full duty today after being limited the first two weeks of spring practice by a tight hamstring.
And Le'Marcus Gibson worked out in 7-on-7s even as he rehabs his knee.

UPDATE 3: Princess Leila has a video with Rocky Savaiigaea, Malcolm Lane and John Estes talking about their injuries.

UPDATE 4: (chawancut here): Leila Wai has one more video talking with Tyler about him being co-#1 QB. (fyi -- this link might resize your browser)

UPDATE 5: Tonight's news via CCC (Chawan Cut Compilation.) KGMB's Liz Chun has a report on Savaiigaea's injury, KITV's Rob DeMello interviews Kealoha Pilares, who has been improving in his switch to slot, and KFVE's Stephen Florino highlights the defense. Update 6:(chawan:)I'd like the vids to be known as "original chawan cut compilations" (OCCC). wait, nvm. they're not original.


More news about Saturday's practice from KHON's Kanoa Leahey and KITV's Rob DeMello.

By the way, both DeMello and Leahey are part of the Leaheyradio.com blog, which announced the winner of their "Hawaii's Greatest Hi-Lite" tournament.

Dave Reardon profiles the Allen-Jones brothers, C.J. and Cameron, who are both adjusting to moves to defense line.
"Both C.J. and Cameron are very bright," Aranda said after a recent practice. "They pick up everything. You tell them one time and then they've got it. C.J. has been on defense as a linebacker, so some things come a little more natural to him. (Last Thursday) was a big day for Cameron in terms of turning a corner with some of the techniques we're teaching him. We're working on minimizing his movements."
Reardon also writes about some moves in the offensive depth chart.
At the crowded running back spot, Lee said juniors Mario Cox and Jayson Rego have helped themselves at recent practices. Daniel Libre and Leon Wright-Jackson are considered co-starters there.

"He has a little wiggle, he has some ability when he runs the ball," Lee said of Rego.

And here's an update on former UH football player Chad Kapanui, who is the QB of Sioux City Bandits in the UIF League.
Kapanui had guided Coach Jarrod DeGeorgia's Bandits to two straight victories. Kapanui gave Sioux City (3-2) a 10-7 lead when he threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Kaylon Price at the 6:29 mark of the first quarter, but Sioux Falls took the lead for keeps three minutes later when Treasure scored on a three-yard run to end a six-play, 33-yard drive.

    Thanks Tombo for finding articles on former UH players--always want to see how they are doing after graduating. Went to the Sioux City Bandits site:


    found two Chad's from UH along with some player by the name of O. J. Simpson. This is from the player rosters--how many people can say the played football with O.J.? Site has pictures of both Chad's if you click on their names on the roster.

    I guess everyone knows I was only kidding about O.J. Simpson--no not the "killer."

    I was curious and had some time so this is what I found. Not sure you want any of this so throw away what you don't want.

    i was hoping it was the juice!

    anyway, great finds on moreland, satcher and the rest -- i could've sworn satcher transferred before his senior year...

    That's probably why Satcher did not seem familiar to me. I thought it was old age--memory failing. Have you noticed how many Chad's there are? Here is another:
