Spring Day 11

Kahaluu Imua Warriors has a Wednesday practice report on SportsHawaii.com.

Stephen Tsai writes about Laupepa Letuli getting a 6th year.
Shaw said: "The biggest winner in all of this is the Warrior football program. We get a good player back for another year."

During UH's Pro Day, an event Letuli attended earlier this month in Carson, Calif., Shaw told National Football League scouts that Letuli was one of the best tackles he ever coached. Shaw repeated that claim yesterday.

"He has the rare combination of power and strength along with physical size, athleticism and quickness," Shaw said. "He has all of the skills, like no one else I've ever been associated with on the offensive line. He's a very smart football player. He understands the game very well. It's just an awesome tribute to the NCAA to give a guy like that another year on the field."
Tsai also writes that Rodney Bradley is at 90%, and has some news and notes:
Head coach Greg McMackin missed yesterday's practice to be with his wife, Heather, who suffered a fractured arm when she was struck by a car Sunday.
Cornerback Tank Hopkins, who is recovering from a pelvic injury, said he is contemplating redshirting this coming season. Hopkins, who will be a senior, has never used a redshirt year.
Jason Kaneshiro writes about Letuli getting his year back and has some news and notes:
Letuli said his knee is back to 90-95 percent and has been participating in spring practice since being granted a waiver allowing him to work with the Warriors while his appeal was under consideration.

"He lends a lot of maturity to the group now and we've got another guy who can be a leader, knowing he'll be here in the fall," Shaw said. "It was hard for him to really take charge because he didn't know if he'd be here or not."
Leila Wai interviews Letuli and Gordy Shaw.

Wai also interviews David Graves and Nick Rolovich.
