Moniz, Enos, Fresno

Stephen Tsai talks to Bryant Moniz about the time he lived in Fresno.

Ferd Lewis talks to Moniz's Fresno City College coach Tony Caviglia, who has nothing but praise.
What Moniz found when he got there was 6-foot-4, 205-pound Derek Shaw of Oceanside, Calif., a five-star recruit who had committed to Miami and eventually signed a national letter of intent to Arizona State but was initially unable to gain entry. Shaw was the can't-miss prospect on the Rams' campus. Moniz? He was the unknown from Hawaii.

But by dint of his painstaking preparation and diesel-like inner drive, Moniz emerged as the freshman starter. "After that first month, watching him pick up the offense and win over the team, I said, 'We've got something here,' " Caviglia recalled.
Stephen Tsai profiles kicker Scott Enos.
"My reputation has been inconsistency," said Enos, who converted 63.2 percent of his field-goal attempts last season. "That's what everybody had to say about me. I took it to heart, and really worked hard on it."

This season, he has connected on 90 percent of his attempts (9-for-10). He had the decisive field goal in the 31-28 road victory over Army.

"Hard work has paid off," Enos said.
Daniel Lyght of The Fresno Bee writes about how much fun the Fresno State scout team has running the UH offense.
Just the mention of the Hawaii passing game got Harper laughing and grinning, which is unusual for scout-team players.
"It's been fun. We can use the same package next year or something similar to it," Harper said with hope.
And Vongni Yang of The Collegian has a game preview.
With both teams boasting smart and experience quarterbacks as well as middle-of-the-pack defenses, a shootout between Moniz and Colburn is likely. But an aerial attack is something that Hill hopes to avoid against Hawaii.

“I don’t think it’s in our best interest to get in a passing contest with them,” Hill said. “That’s not a good idea against Hawaii. They’re a team that lives by the pass.”
