Receivers, Chargers, Ahmad, Etc.

HawaiiAthletics.com highlights the receivers.
“We’d like to have Greg be a leader and he definitely wants to do that,” Davis said. “He’s shown that he wants to be as good as he can be, and he wants the rest of the players to be as good as they can be too.”

Converted running back Kealoha Pilares made the transition to slot receiver look easy in 2009, hauling in 66 receptions for 690 yards and four TDs.

“Kealoha is a very good receiver,” Davis said. “He’s very bright, you tell him one thing and he picks it up right away and that’s important at the receiver position.”
Barry Villamil has an article about the Pearl City (woot!) Warriors on MyPearlCity.com. Here's an excerpt:
MyPearlCity.com asked the trio from Pearl City the following questions after their first day of Fall training camp as Warriors:

How did it feel to step out onto the University of Hawaii football practice field for the first time as a Warrior?

David Lefotu: "It felt great, it felt good to come out here and compete with all the other guys, all the other veterans. I wasn't nervous at all. I was ready to get out here and put in work. I learned a lot today so it was pretty exciting to get out here for the first time."

Beau Yap: "It's just a whole different level. You have to go full speed hundred percent of the time."

Skye Kaapuni: "Exciting, the first day. I was out here the beginning of summer and now we get to finally touch the ball and work on football stuff."
Stephen Tsai profiles Po'okela Ahmad.
Patience also has benefited Ahmad, who has been practicing as a first-team linebacker when the Warriors are in their 45 defense, a scheme that utilizes a nickel back.

"Po'okela is bright," defensive coordinator Dave Aranda said. "He understands defenses. He's a good coverage backer. He's improved in his skills. He's a guy who's very dependable."
And Tsai has some news and notes about special teams, Kainoa LaCount, Aaron Brown, etc.
