Green to all-star game, Letuli gets agent

December 29th, 2010


Former UH running back Alex Green has been told he will be invited to play in the Texas vs. The Nation all-star game in February. 

Green will sign with an agent today, and train at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

Former UH offensive tackle Laupepa Letuli has reached an agreement with agent Leo Goeas, a former Warrior lineman who played eight seasons in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers, Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams, Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos. 

Because Letuli is in California and Goeas in Hawaii, where he relocated recently from Colorado, the contract will be mailed today. 

Letuli will train with Chad Ikei in Arizona. 

By the way, it's Pepa's birthday today.

Not all dreams are the same. 

Scott Enos, who concluded his UH kicking career with the Hawaii Bowl,  will not hire an agent nor leave school. His two-step goals are: 1) to get healthy, and 2) to earn a bachelor's degree. 

Enos played the entire season with an arthritic lower back, a condition that often made it painful to kick. But with no backups, he played the whole year without complaints. He is set to graduate next December.

Look for punter Alex Dunnachie to try to practice kickoffs during the offseason.

Former UH defensive backs Jeramy Bryant and Mana Silva are interviewing agents this week.

Thinking aloud:

• Now that a ballpark figure for travel subsidies has been established, isn't this the part where the new governor or UH president says that the state, travel industry or university will pick up the tab? 

• Or, since the contracts have been signed, what if UH does not agree to pay the high travel fees? Contracts are signed. The membership can't be rescinded, right? 

• UH should sell two-year, season-ticket packages. That way it can: 1) project budgets a year in advance. 2) take advantage of the enthusiasm of joining the MWC. 

• There's going to be a ring ceremony. Make it a public event. Say, for $10, fans get to attend the ceremony where snacks and beverages will be served. They can cheer  each player receiving a ring, then take pictures and get autographs. Proceeds would go to Na Koa.
