Marcus Malepeai Commits, Scout Bowl, Kickers

Stephen Tsai writes that Radford defensive end Marcus Malepeai will become a Warrior.
An athletic defensive end from Radford High has accepted a football scholarship from the University of Hawai'i.

"I wanted to stay home," said Malepeai, who is 6 feet 2 and 245 pounds.

At Radford, he has been used on the perimeter as a defensive end and outside linebacker.

He also received interest from Washington, Arizona, California and Brigham Young.
Congrats to Marcus!

Tsai also has a hilarious article about the Scout Bowl draft.
The childhood taunt is indeed true.

You snooze, you lose.

"They were sleeping, so we get the first pick," Hawai'i linebacker Solomon Elimimian declared.

Several minutes later, linebacker Adam Leonard showed up, protesting that he was tardy because he was in class. And, besides, he was not told of the location.

"Too bad," Elimimian said. "We're picking first."

And with that, Elimimian and center John Estes selected quarterback Jake Santos No. 1 in the Scout Bowl draft.
Jason Kaneshiro has some news and notes about Aaron Kia and Po'okela Ahmad, and catches up with kicker Dan Kelly and punter Tim Grasso.
Grasso averaged just under 40 yards per kick last season even though the injury restricted his leg swing.

He took the spring semester off to return to Utah, where he saw a specialist who kneaded the muscle to work out the scar tissue that had built up during the season.

"When I'd be in pain I'd be like, 'This is going to be worth it,' " Grasso said of the rehab. "It's most definitely one of the most painful things, but it worked for sure."
