Walk-On Tryouts

Stephen Tsai has a report from yesterday's UH football walk-on tryouts.
Nearly 100 hopefuls yesterday auditioned for walk-on spots on the University of Hawai'i football team.

They came from far (Maine and South Korea) and near (two are UH student managers).

In the 40-yard dash, some ran with Division I-worthy speed; some had times that were area codes.
To avoid the appearance of favoritism, all of the walk-on candidates who were not on UH's 2009 roster were required to participate in the tryout. The list included Joey Cadiz, a running back who missed the past two UH seasons while recovering from knee surgery, and Ryan "The Beast" Eastman, a Saint Louis School alumnus who relinquished a Weber State scholarship.

"I want to be a Warrior and play as a Warrior," Eastman said. "I don't mind starting from the bottom. I like it better that way."

    Hey Kurt, this blog isn't actually affiliated with UH, but here's where you can get the UH coaches' contact info:

    I believe George Lumpkins is the recruiting coordinator and Rich Miano is the walk-on coordinator. Best of luck getting to UH!

    I played D-line in high school, I'm 6'3.5" weighing at 260lbs. Watching some of my teammates play in college made me regret not playing my whole high school year. I know I've made a huge mistake and it's not a good feeling to regret anything. Now I feel like football is what I was meant to do in life. If I had to do it all over again, I would put my heart and mind into everything I do. I would play just to make my family proud and that's what keeps me going. Contact#4508541

    Its like you learn my mind! You appear to know a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I feel that you can do with some p.c. to power the message
    home a little bit, however instead of that, that is
    great blog. A great read. I will definitely be
    back.
