At the end of today's practice, three Rainbow Warriors received good news: Breakfast would be free.
Slotback Donnie King, running back Marcus Langkilde and defensive end Ikaika Cavaco-Amoy were awarded football scholarships today.
That means 1) No more Sallie Mae. 2) No double work shifts for their parents. 3) They are invited to eat training-table meals with other teammates on scholarships.
"It's nice when we can help guys who have worked hard," head coach Norm Chow.
King, Langkilde and Cavaco-Amoy count toward the Rainbow Warriors' overall scholarship total, but not as one of the 25 initials. The Warriors have allotted 84 of their maximum 85 scholarships. Transfers Jeremy Castro and Quinton Pedroza went on scholarship today, the first day of UH's fall semester, but will count as initials for the 2014 recruiting class. Castro and Pedroza have to redshirt this season.
