Aaron Price expected to join Warriors

February 21st, 2013

It appears former UTEP offensive coordinator Aaron Price will be joining the UH football program in a yet-to-be-determined capacity.

Price is the son of Mike Price, who recently retired as UTEP's head coach, ending a 30-plus-years coaching career.

Aaron Price was in charge of play-calling and the Miners' quarterbacks and special teams.

The Warriors got a head start on 2014 recruiting by securing a commitment from Farrington High DB/LB Manly "Pumba" Williams.

His namesake uncle is a former Warrior (as well as the state's defensive player of the year as a Saint Louis School senior). His brother is UH linebacker Lance Williams.

Williams is 6 feet 2 and 194 pounds.

"You never have to worry about him," Farrington coach Randall Okimoto said. "He's a good student. He has a 3.5 GPA. He's very responsible. He's a very smart player. He helps remind the other guys about being responsible."

Here's his highlight video: Williams video.

If you're a dorm student, the Force was with you last night.

The basketball Warriors dressed up in Star Wars costumes — the theme of Saturday's game — and went door-to-door at the dorms inviting students to the upcoming game.
