The Warrior Beat

Joint mission

June 14th, 2012

The Warriors will be represented in an annual goodwill trip to American Samoa.

The past few years, former UH head coach June Jones' foundation has sponsored a mission in which former players and coaches delivered medical supplies and taught at football clinics.

UH did not send a coach last year. This year, Jones and UH head coach Norm Chow arranged for UH assistants Tony Tuioti and Daronte' Jones to be part of the trip. While the coaches are not recruiting this trip, it does help maintain goodwill ties.

Jesse Sapolu, Maa Tanuvasa, Chris Fuamatu-Maafala, Melila Purcell III and Reno Mahe also are on the travel list.

The group leaves this afternoon and returns on Tuesday.

Chow said that two other UH assistants — Lewis Powell and Keith Uperesa — will be attending this weekend's All-Poly Camp in Utah.

Yes, Deuce watches are now available in Warrior.


Here are former Warriors Ryan Grice-Mullins and Robert Lan modeling the Deuce:


Too young to remember Robert Lan? Air Force oldtimers might remember. He had one of the greatest interception/fumble returns in UH football history.

Thanks to A-Joe for finding the video. A-Joe notes the action begins at the 4:29 mark: Lan touchdown.
