The Warrior Beat


July 18th, 2014

Training camp opens in two weeks, but the following are no longer with the Warriors:

> Bubba Poueu-Luna, wideout/kickoff returner — After earning three letters in his first four years, he opted to retire from football and focus on academics. He did not participate in the recent spring training.

> David Griffin, offensive tackle — After transferring from Mesa College in January 2013, Griffin played in five games, making two starts, at right tackle last season. He underwent shoulder surgery during the offseason. Griffin is expected to transfer to a lower-division school in Texas … to play basketball.

> Hunter Hughes, quarterback — He gave it the old college try. At the walk-on tryouts, he qualified for a berth as a scout quarterback this past spring. Unfortunately for Hughes, he did not earn an invitation to training camp.

> Max Broman, running back — Similar to offensive lineman Brendan Urban, Broman learned the steep price of paradise for a non-scholarship, non-resident student.

> Cesar Fermin, cornerback — He did not meet the requirements to transfer to UH this past January or this summer. He still is working to complete his associate degree.

> Dustin Elisara, fullback — He was granted a medical retirement, and remains on scholarship, although his playing career appears to be over.

> Michael Lafaele, announcer — He joined Iolani School as an assistant coach, preventing him from working as a pre-game analyst for OC Sports' telecasts of UH games.
