Road Notes, Corey Paredes

Bobby Curran has a "Curran Events" article with notes from the road and a short profile of linebacker Corey Paredes.
Paredes is one of the great stories of the 2009 Warrior team.

A talented but undersized player at Castle High School, Paredes was late getting out recruiting tapes, and got some interest but no firm scholarship offers. “I heard from Tennessee and Washington,” said Paredes, “but they wanted me to walk on. UH seemed as interested as anybody so I walked on here.”

Paredes worked hard while paying his own way, and one day after practice Coach Mac announced that he and Kahuku alum Richard Torres were being rewarded with scholarships. That was greeted with heartfelt cheers from their teammates who knew how hard they had worked.
