Colt on campus

January 5th, 2012

Colt Brennan was on the University of Hawaii campus today (Thursday). The former Warriors star quarterback who was third in the Heisman race in 2007 said he plans to spend the spring here working out in hopes of making it to an NFL camp this year.

“One more shot at the NFL. If not, I can’t keep passing on the CFL,” said Brennan, who is now 28.

He said he is fine physically, having recovered from injuries incurred in a serious car accident on the Big Island in late 2010.

Brennan said he’s just visiting this week and was looking into registering for some graduate classes. He expects to return in a couple of weeks and begin working out. He mentioned possibly doing so with Chad Ikei, the noted trainer who has moved his operation home to Hawaii from Arizona.

“I’ve still got stuff in storage back east (in Washington, from his time with the Redskins from 2008 to 2010),” he said. “I need to get it before someone Storage Wars me.”

January 2nd, 2012

HPD officer and TV basketball commentator David Hallums is well- known statewide for his college hoops exploits as a Brigham Young-Hawaii and University of Hawaii guard. But he was also an outstanding quarterback at Pearl City High School in the early 1980s.

Hallums now returns to his alma mater as head football coach, replacing Kai Kamaka who coached the Chargers for three seasons and led PCHS to its first state tournament appearance last fall.

Hallums confirmed his hiring today via text message.
