Former UH quarterback Bryant Moniz  told the Star-Advertiser he has reached agreement on an two-year contract with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League.

Moniz reports to camp on May 28.

Calgary's first exhibition game is June 14.

Details of the contract were not released, but the CFL minimum is $50,000 per year.

While being recruited, Saint Louis School senior Devan Stubblefield received post-card sized letters from the UH football coaches.

Some letters were detailed. Some congratulated him on a recent game. Some were just how's-it-going notes. Some days there were two dozen letters in his mailbox. Stubblefield collected the letters. Many are stored in a shoebox in his room.

Stubblefield said the letters were helpful in his decision to sign with the Rainbow Warriors this past February.

Offensive lineman Eperone Moananu recently displayed the cards he received from the Warriors. Moananu has made an oral commitment to play for the Warriors in 2015.

The UH coaches utilize the social-media networks to communicate. But they also rely on the old-school method of notes — all hand-written — to show interest in a prospect.

"I liked it," Stubblefield said.
