Scott Enos, Jake Heun, Kenny Estes, Etc.

Stephen Tsai profiles kicker Scott Enos.
Scott Enos has found a habit that makes it easy to kick.

"I get physical therapy every day," said Enos, who has not missed an extra-point kick during his 25-game Hawaii football career.

That streak of 92 successful point-after kicks in a row is a UH record.

The accomplishment is remarkable because the previous mark was held by Jason Elam, who enjoyed a long career in the NFL, and because each of Enos' kicks induces a painful wince.

Since the opener against Southern California, Enos has suffered from arthritis in his lower back.
Tsai talks to senior Jake Heun about his time at UH.
Heun's time at running back did not last long. On the second day of training camp in 2008, he suffered a herniated disc while weight training.

"My whole (left) leg went numb for six months," Heun said.

He did not play that season.

In the spring of 2009, Heun said, "Four out of five neurologists said I shouldn't play anymore. It kind of sucks when you're never really what you used to be."

But Heun refused to quit. Instead, he moved to defense, where he played linebacker and rush end.
Tsai also writes that senior safety Kenny Estes will apply for a medical redshirt.

Ferd Lewis writes about the importance of the Hawaii Bowl, and notes that a contingent from UH met with the MWC in Colorado.
The University of Hawaii's pursuit of new conference alignments moved ahead yesterday with face-to-face talks with the Mountain West Conference on the mainland while paperwork has been submitted to the Big West for membership.

UH vice president Rockne Freitas and athletic director Jim Donovan were said to have headed a delegation that met with the MWC in Colorado.
