The Warriors yesterday received commitments from Joey Iosefa, a quarterback/safety from American Samoa, and linebacker Liloa Nobriga of Palo Verde High in Las Vegas.
Iosefa, who is 6 feet 1 and 190 pounds, was named American Samoa's 2007 Offensive Player of the Year in football. He also plays basketball, volleyball and soccer.
Nobriga is 6 feet 3 and 230 pounds. He attended ‘Iolani School through his sophomore year, then moved to Las Vegas, where his family had relocated. He was a promising basketball player at ‘Iolani. He played football as an ‘Iolani freshman, but not as a sophomore. Last season, he had 11 sacks.

Keala Watson did a good deed the other night. Figuring that Fale Laeli had been limited because of knee and ankle problems this season, Watson decided to relinquish his starting spot. It was a nice gesture of sportsmanship, selflessness and respect. Laeli was a starter last season, and was expected to be a big contributor this season before incurring health problems.

Our thoughts, prayers and good wishes go to Dr. Doc, who suffered a heart attack last night.

Happy birthday to Long Time UH Fan, who has been a great person for a long time.
