Leonard to miss three games; Tuaniga leaves

August 28th, 2010

Brett Leonard, who was going to start at center, will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and miss the first three games. 

Bronson Tiwanak will start at center now, completing UH's starting offensive unit:

LWO — Rodney Bradley

LSB — Greg Salas

LT — Austin Hansen

 LG — Brysen "Bulla" Ginlack

C — Bronson Tiwanak

RG — Adrian Thomas 

RT — Laupepa Letuli 

RSB — Kealoha Pilares 

RWO — Royce Pollard

QB — Bryant Moniz

RB — Alex Green

People in the know tell us that it wasn't easy reading Leonard's MRI. The glitch is that 6-foot-4, 310-pound patients don't always slide neatly into an MRI tunnel. The good thing is UH is able to book MRI appointments quickly. Leonard was injured during a Wednesday morning practice, and a couple of hours later he underwent the MRI.

Nice to see the turnout at yesterday's volleyball match. 


The band was in good form ... 


It also was nice to see members of other UH sports teams supporting the Rainbow Wahine. There were several football players there. How scary is it for an opponent when linebacker Jake Heun is in the stands? Also, it appears a few Warriors have established a mini fan club for Kanani Danielson. Here's punter Alex Dunnachie holding a home-made sign after a Danielson kill:

We're told that men's volleyball player Gus Tuaniga is enrolled at Long Beach City College this season. Tuaniga, who would have been a junior at UH this year, is taking some time to decide whether he wants to continue playing volleyball or pursue other interests. Tuaniga left the Warriors in good academic standing, and will be welcomed back if he so chooses.
