Arena Football League training camps have opened, and UH is represented in the Bay Area.
Ray Hisatake, Aaron Kia and Francis Maka are members of the San Jose SaberCats, who return after a two-season hiatus. In the AFL, there are eight players on each side. On offense, there must be at least three offensive linemen. Hisatake plays guard, which is really a tackle. Kia is a tight end, which means he aligns as a guard but is eligible to catch passes. (The guard who raises his hand before the play is designated as the tight end.) Maka is a fullback, defensive end and linebacker.
The SaberCats' quarterback is Mark Grieb, who was UH offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich's SaberCat teammate several years ago. At team meetings, Grieb wears Eo Na Toa apparel sent to him by Rolovich, according to Hisatake.
Also, former UH slotback Mike Washington is an inside receiver for the Pittsburgh Power.
