No Hawaii vacation for Bess

June 28th, 2010

Former UH receiver Davone Bess said he will remain in Miami until the start of the Dolphins' training camp in late July. Bess had spent the past two summers in Hawaii.

"I've got a little spot here," Bess said.

Bess again will wear No. 15, after declining to sell it to Brandon Marshall, who popularized that number during his career wit the Denver Broncos. "I couldn't do it, just couldn't do it," Bess said.

He said NFL rules prohibit him from wearing a single-digit number, ruling out using the No. 7 he wore at UH. (Receivers are permitted to wear single-digits only if the Nos. 15-19 are taken.) Besides, Bess said, "our quarterback (Chad Henne) has No. 7."

Bess and his wife are expecting their second child — and first boy — in October. He said they have chosen the name Kingston Davone Bess.

Head coach Charlie Wade said that, at last count, there will be 17 players trying out for libero in the fall. Ric Cervantes, a four-year starter at libero, completed his NCAA eligibility in May.

And a happy birthday to Melissa Wilton.
