The Warrior Beat

This shot doesn't count

January 27th, 2010

The football team was told that because linebacker Brashton Satele had completed five years of eligibility and earned a degree in December, he would have to count as part of UH's 2010 recruiting class if he were to successfully petition for a sixth year of football.

Lee Ann Satele, like the rest of us, thought that was an odd rule. So she personally called the NCAA and was told that, no, her son would not count as one of the 25 initial scholarships. She then notified UH.

Satele, who is taking on-line classes while training in Arizona, returned to Honolulu for a few days. He already has lost 10 pounds.

Former UH defensive tackle Michael Lafaele has been working out intensively the past several weeks. We've been told he is considering whether to take a retest at UH's Pro Day in Carson, Calif.

Lafeale completed his UH eligibility at the end of the 2008 Sugar Bowl. He participated in the 2008 Pro Day, but was not drafted nor offered a free-agent contract.

He has had a successful career in marketing and advertising.
