Ahead game

September 14th, 2013

Hawaii football fans should have reasons to be optimistic following yesterday's abbreviated version of the Scout Bowl.

Running back Diocemy Saint Juste, who started as a way to get live reps, opened with a 65-yard run for a touchdown. It confirmed what everybody already knew: Saint Juste has that special second-gear burst that portends a solid future.

Ikaika Woolsey, who was 9 of 13 for 143 yards, also is progressing well.

Tight end Josh Long showed he is 100 percent. Long suffered a concussion from a skateboard accident in June. Being allowed to skip training camp helped him completely recover. He said he is find, and is using this redshirt season to develop.

Two transfers — linebacker Jeremy Castro (UCLA) and receiver Quinton Pedroza (Utah) — also made big plays in the scrimmage. Castro made a backfield tackle on Saint Juste. Pedroza scored on a 65-yard play.
