Favorite UH running backs

November 29th, 2010
By

Even before he rushed for an amazing 327 yards Saturday, Alex Green was fairly high on my list. Gary Allen is tops, with David Toloumu, Anthony Edgar, Travis Sims, Nate Ilaoa and Wilbert Haslip not far behind. Can’t leave out Peter Wilson, whose mark of 270 yards rushing in a game against BYU in 1950 stood until Green topped it Saturday against New Mexico State.

Tell me who is missing.

    Let’s not forget Gary “O.J.” Allen and Keith (?) “Junior” Lopati. They were among my favorites as well.


  2. al:

    nu’u fa’aola, heikoti fakava, larry sherrer, david toloumu are definitely missing from this group. all had either nfl stints or long looks in the pros.


  3. al:

    sorry, didn’t see toloumu’s name in your posting.

    for you older folks, you might remember local boys tennyson lum, alvin yamashiro, ben ronquillio.


  4. anklebiters:

    How about Albert Holmes from the early ’70s?


  5. chawan_cut:

    i only go so far back, so travis sims’ popeye calves and his 99 yard td run at UTEP that got called back by a bogus block in the back call, is my fave.


  6. Bigislandkurt:

    Junior Lopati was pretty darn good before his knee injury.

    BIK


  7. G Money:

    James Fenderson was like a human pin-ball machine. Great background story as well… living out of his van!


  8. Luki:

    Fakava, Lopati and although not a running back, always thought Slotback Dane MacArthur was vastly underrated…That guy could run, catch, and lay some real crunching blocks…


  9. uhwarriors:

    Didn’t see they play, but Tommy Kaulukukui and Nolle Smith must be on the list. Kaulukukui an All-American in 1935 and Smith made made Little All-America in 1941.


  10. kev-1:

    used to love watching Wes Keliikipi run the rock. that was short lived, but it was fun to watch. doesn’t really compare with the others stats-wise though.

    Definitely Fenderson for sure. Likes Sims a lot too.


  11. alnbama:

    Wow, no love for Arnold Morgado, maybe cause he was pilipino, lol


  12. alnbama:

    I always loved the power runner’s ala Wilbur Haslip


  13. Go Warriors:

    One guy who always gets overlooked is Norris Birdsong. He was a smooth runner and the brother of NBA guard Otis Birdsong.

    Thanks for your writing. I would love to say a health insurance brokerage also works well with the benefit of the actual coordinators of any group insurance plan. The health insurance professional is given a list of benefits wanted by anyone or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker can is try to find individuals or coordinators which will best match up those needs. Then he reveals his tips and if each party agree, the broker formulates an agreement between the 2 parties.

    The childrens’ library really seals the deal on this one. Very clever use of limited space (a praise I frequently find myself giving to decorators in both Japanese and European cities), and the bold red paint job on the outdoor garage adds a nice flair.

    Throughout the grand design of things you actually secure a B+ with regard to effort and hard work. Where you actually misplaced me personally ended up being in the specifics. You know, it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more correct right here. Having said that, let me tell you just what did do the job. The writing is actually pretty powerful which is most likely why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, even though I can easily see a leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really convinced of how you seem to unite the ideas which in turn help to make your final result. For right now I shall subscribe to your issue however wish in the foreseeable future you actually connect your facts better.

    Good blog post. What I would like to contribute is that personal computer memory needs to be purchased when your computer can no longer cope with that which you do with it. One can mount two good old ram boards of 1GB each, for example, but not one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should look for the maker’s documentation for one’s PC to be certain what type of storage is required.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was
    wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart
    so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers
