Taylor Graham, Ikaika Woolsey and Jeremy Higgins will split the reps at quarterbacks in Friday's extended situational scrimmage.
The rotation does not mean UH has selected a starting quarterback for its next game, against Colorado State on Oct. 26. Sean Schroeder will be withheld from the scrimmage because he already has played a significant number of reps in the past three games. The coaches want to give more work to Graham, who has missed the past three games, Woolsey and Higgins. As always, the QBs will be wearing red jerseys during the scrimmage and will not be allowed to be hit.

Every year, there is an unheralded player who emerges into a significant role. For the year, slot receiver Donnie King has been that guy, gaining attention since spring training. During the season, Bubba Poueu-Luna has resurrected his career as a kickoff returner. Of the first-year Warriors, cornerback Anthony Pierce was a widely overlooked recruit. He grayshirted in the fall of 2012 and joined the Warriors in January. But the coaches have praised Pierce's quickness and toughness. He is now UH's No. 3 corner, behind starters Ne'Quan Phillips and Dee Maggitt.

I was blinded by the Vegas lights and missed the birthday check list.
So, belated (but beloved) birthday wishes to some truly special people:
And ... all rise, please ... for Kekoa
