Congratulations to running back Joey Cadiz, who has been invited to the Warriors' training camp, which opens this weekend.
Cadiz, a 2007 graduate of Mililani High, attended Humboldt State last year. He earned one of 104 spots (UH is keeping one open) because of his hard work in running drills and weightlifting sessions this summer.
Cadiz, who is 5 feet 6, is expected to serve on the scout team. But earning a berth against tough competition is quite an accomplishment. Mario Cox and Alonzo Chopp have been invited to rejoin Aug. 25, the first day of the fall semester, when the roster limit is lifted.
Wideout Jett Jasper, slotback Nate Nasca, cornerbacks Kawika Ornellas and Richard Torres, and offensive lineman Les Soloai also earned training-camp berths.

It's never too early to think ahead.
One of the 28 scholarship offers went to an eighth-grader.

UH coaches and staff are required to attend "Tongue Fu" classes — sessions designed to teach speech and communication skills. One of the lessons is on how to relate to the "Millenium Generation." (Hint: Anyone born before 1990 should not refer to someone as "dawg.")

That sound is the breaking of young men's hearts. Our co-worker and fellow blogger, Caryn Kunz, is engaged. Caryn is a graduate of Kahuku High and Stanford. Her cousin is UH defensive tackle Quentin Beaver. She also is Inoke Funaki's classmate.
