Kenton wins tickets

November 30th, 2009

Copy editor Christie Lee Williams (Aiea '85), not to be confused with Maui correspondent Christie Wilson or UH video coordinator Chris Williams, has picked Kenton as the winner of two tickets to the UH-Wisconsin game. Thanks for playing, and we'll be giving away more tickets this week. Kenton, please e-mail me at

Cornerback Travaun Nixon of Ventura College told the Warrior Beat he is joining the Warriors. Nixon is 6 feet and 190 pounds. He played in only seven games this past season, but made six interceptions. He will enroll at UH in January.

Blaze Soares has been named the WAC's Defensive Player of the Week.

"I feel very thankful," Soares told the WB. "If it weren't for my teammates, it wouldn't be possible. Great team efforts help you get individual awards. I'm thankful. This is the first one of my career."

Soares is tomorrow's guest on the Warrior Beat Show.

Today is the last day of hurricane season. Which means: we can now tap the hurricane relief fund to stave off furloughs.

Anheuser-Busch donated $100,000 to UH today. In a round-about way, I think, Koakane probably deserves partial credit.
