O-lineman commits to Warriors

June 2nd, 2013

The Rainbow Warriors secured a commitment from Sullivan "Sully" Wiefels, an offensive lineman from American River College.

Wiefels is 6 feet 3 and 295 pounds.

It was widely believed Wiefels would be part of the 2014 class. But he was a "predictor" as a high school senior, meaning he met the requirements to play as an NCAA freshman and is eligible to play for the Warriors this season.

Wiefels, who will join the Warriors this summer, will have four years to play three UH seasons.

He will compete at guard.

  2. papajoe2:

    Wow, top 5. And beat the spam too.

  3. papajoe2:

    Good morning everybody!

  4. Stephen Tsai:

    I'm going on vacation this week, so spammers will need to find another outlet.

  5. laulau head:

    Have a good one ST...we going miss you

  6. d1shima:

    Great Morning All!

    The more the merrier! Aloha Sully Wiefels!

  7. PONO:

    Glad to see added depth at OL coming in. Injuries are part of the game so we need to develop depth.

  8. d1shima:


    Mrs. d1shima went up for Commencement. She giving me the on-site 411, too! Miss that place...

  9. d1shima:

    Have a terrific vacation, Stephen!

  11. koakane:

    sneaking in to say morning :cool: to yu'all

    have a good sabbath, give thanks for your blessings, enjoy the day and play nice

  12. Old School Dave:

    Welcome Mr. Wiefels!! Thanks for becoming a Warrior!

  13. Haleakala:

    Lucky 13!

    Welcome to the Warriors Sully!!

  14. Stephen Tsai:

    By the way, Sully's hobby is cooking.
    He's Italian/German.

  15. Stephen Tsai:

    He said he lived in Gilroy as a kid. That's the "Garlic Capital of the World" — it says so on a bottle of garlic salt I have — and an incredible outlet mall. Plus, Gilroy has an In-N-Out Burger.

  16. Stephen Tsai:

    What are chops?
    I always thought they were teeth, like a "set of choppers."
    But that wouldn't make sense to "lick your chops" in anticipation.

  17. Bowwar:

    Have a great vacation ST...Take a cruise...

  18. Ballpicker702:

    "Sully" is a great nickname.!
    Have a great vacay ST.

    Go Warriors

  19. Stephen Tsai:

    Re: cruise
    Several years ago, I covered the Molokai Hoe.
    I figured I might get seasick on the press boat, so I took one of those anti-motion-sickness pills. I fell asleep for what I thought was only a few minutes. Wrongo. I woke up, and I saw Oahu.

  20. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Good Morning Gangeez!

    Welcome, Sully Wiefels!

    You're going on vacation, Mr. Tsai? How are we going to get 5,000% of our RDA of spam?

    In any case, have fun!

  21. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    HeyBP! Hows Vegas doin today?

  22. A-House:

    aye yah!

    no wonder raining in the valley - ST going on vacation - have a good one!

    does this mean that the "blog" will be down for this coming week?

    "Sully" looks like a great find for growing the OL depth with 4 to play 3.

  23. A-House:


    paper says 103 degrees in Vegas today - lucky you live Hawaii.

  24. A-House:

    with all the coming and goings - does Coach Chow have any more scholarships 2 give?

  25. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    #23 - Amen!

  26. A-House:

    I saw the channel 3 weather forecast Friday and planned my weekend for painting the lumber for our new patio roof.

    good thing it was somewhat sunny yesterday as today the 20% chance of rain is turning to be 100% rain today - doggone paint takes extra long to dry!

  27. tommui:

    STEPHEN: Give me a call when you can. I'm in the book! Thanks.


  28. Stephen Tsai:

    I think we'll go with your suggested date. Let me know when you want to announce.

  29. Stephen Tsai:

    Our JoJo is in Vegas at the moment.

  30. Pomai:

    HEY TOM!!!!! just in case ST didn't call ya..........

  31. SteveM:

    Good morning everyone!

    Welcome to "Sully" Wiefels!

  32. PolyMom:

    Good job! Our team is filling out!

  33. papajoe2:

    A-House~my daughter arrived in Vegas yesterday to 105 degrees. At 103, it must be cooling down. lol
    Have a great trip ST, wherever ya goin.

  34. gobows:

    strange for an offensive linemen to have just 1 or 2 plays of film per football game. gotta wonder why he attended a sac river college if he was a qualifier out of hs.

  35. Ballpicker702:

    It's a nice day DPK. I had a friend from Hawaii just drop off a case of Vienna sausage. The yellow can kine.:)

  36. SteveM:

    RE: #19
    ST-- I think you just admitted you don't get sea sick if one lil' ole pill makes you rock to sleep. Tip: don't take a pill on a cruise ship and try to stay awake the best you can... :roll:

  37. Ballpicker702:

    Nice day if your in the house. I mean!

  38. Ballpicker702:

    That's funny because the friend who dropped off the Vienna has a daughter playing in a softball tournament in Henderson today and she said to her mom, how can anybody live here! Yikes

  39. tommui:

    STEPHEN: re:#28

    You want me to carry the ball?

  40. Ballpicker702:

    Oops, there goes the neighborhood.

    Aloha all.

  41. Haleakala:

    Gilroy - I took the family to Gilroy once. It's a long drive from San Francisco. My wife wanted to shop at the factory outlet mall. We made a few stops along the way and arrived at 6:00 pm. The stores were closing. I believe it was a Sunday. We had dinner at an Applebees and made the long drive back.

  42. Hilo Moon:

    If your car has the windows "cracked" open, you'll know when you're in Gilroy. Especially, on a hot summer's day. For me that's okay because I love garlic.

  43. d1shima:

    ...and Fullerton is sitting pretty in their own regional at 2-0

  44. d1shima:


    Cal Poly playing USD, not the Aztecs

  45. wafan:

    Welcome to new Warrior Wiefels!

  46. Shoko:

    Think everyone should go on vacation from the blog. That way the only person posting will be the spam. ;)

  47. d1shima:

    USD eliminates Cal Poly.

    Fullerton is the lone remaining BW team

  48. mo808:

    Good Sunday Greetings Folks!

    Welcome to Sullivan “Sully” Wiefels! So very happy to have you playing for the University of Hawaii! Can't wait for fooball season!

    ST, hope you and Wena have a wonderful vacation! I'll miss your posts here--not looking forward to seeing endless spam --so, if you close it--we'll understand!

    see you on FB Tsaikos :-)

  49. A-House:

    ST must be going to somewhere it does not rain much - still lots of clouds, but no rain!!

  50. wafan:

    Mr. Tsai on vacation?

    Enjoy the time off and away!

    Remember to lock the windows and doors. Gotta keep the creeps out!!!

  52. wafan:

    Just 9 and 4 remain.

    Can do!

  53. wafan:

    So close and so far.

  54. wafan:

    Tsigh . . .

  55. wafan:

    Good number to stop for the night.


  56. Stephen Tsai:

    Ignore the spam and the spammer.
    I can just zap away.
    It's annoying, but not as annoying as the person in person.

  57. Shoko:

    Still have no idea who you guys are talking about.

  58. Shoko:

    If its the person everyone is thinking about, he or she must not sleep very much. Maybe 2-3 hours between spamming.

  59. Shoko:

    Can't imagine anyone being that neurotic and obsessed.

  60. Warrior Dave:

    Shoko woke the spammer up.

    Go to sleep...go to sleep...go to sleep you rat

  61. koakane:

    watching softball Oklahoma vs Washington. Dogs making it interesting. Keilani Rickettes pitching.

    Only about 15 minutes left for my buddy Toan's fundraising campaign. Yes, he's looking for donations (just reached his $25,000 goal), but he's also looking for some leads on stories...



    "Now we need YOU!

    We’re just getting started. There are countless unsung heroes across the country, and we want to tell their stories - 50 of the most extraordinary individuals across our 50 states. As we’ve done with past GIG stories, our hope is that this will inspire others to dig deeper within and think about what we can do to make a difference.

    So you can help by...

    Donating as much or as little as you can for this campaign, every donation will take us a long way

    Sharing this campaign and our content with your friends, family, colleagues

    Telling us about ordinary people doing extraordinary good in your community

    Smiling...because your smile is an inspiration! :)

    Donate - did we say that already? "

  63. PIAA DS:

    Sullivan. Good name!

  64. cocobean:

    Can't believe someone who claims to be devout a devout Catholic. Someone who has often quoted from the bible can in good conscience spam after coming home from church.

    Please look up how to say hypocrite* in the Japanese language.

  65. wafan:

    Good 8 and 3 morning!

  66. wafan:

    The spammer is more irritating in person?

    Dang . . .

  67. Stephen Tsai:

    Chat away until 7 a.m.
    Then we're closing down until Saturday.

  68. 3-Prong:

    ST: Enjoy....

    Bloggers: See ya!

  69. 3-Prong:

    Oh...............and Go Bows!

  70. Ballpicker702:

    Take care ST.

    Go Warriors.

  71. 3-Prong:

    Like a smoker, getting his last drags in before taking an airline flight........kinda worried about withdrawals. Hehe

  72. HiloBilly:

    Have a great break, ST...it sure would be nice during this 'off-time' if the SA's IT staff can figure out how to get rid of the spammers. Maybe 'pay back' by redirecting their spam to themselves? Closer attention to IP addresses? Challenge the IT geniuses to make things right!!!

    At any rate, keep up the super work on the WB; we're looking forward to the coming year in UH sports, especially football!
