Sampson to miss 2012 season

August 9th, 2012

In an emotional meeting last night, receiver Allen Sampson was told he will miss the 2012 season because he has not healed from a knee injury suffered 10 months ago.

Sampson suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in a victory over New Mexico State in October 2011. He then underwent season-ending surgery.

He was held out of contact drills during spring training.

Sampson had attempted to practice this training camp, but he still experienced problems with his knee.

Sampson, who signed with UH in February 2010, has not used a redshirt year. After this season, he will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Random observation, but shouldn't "Buff Nation" be the slogan for 24-Hour Fitness?

Deep breaths, deep breaths.

Ne'Quan Phillip and, Steven Lakalaka were among the newcomers who were excused from yesterday's practice to work on a school project. Final exams for the second summer session are today and tomorrow.

Team meetings were canceled last night to give the players time to study and complete projects.
