Junior Day paying off

June 20th, 2009

A couple of months after holding its first Junior Day, it looks like the benefits are already starting to roll in for UH.
Campbell receiver Samson Anguay and Moanalua offensive lineman Frank Loyd were among the high schoolers who participated in the event, which factored into their decisions to commit to the Warriors.
“After our Junior Day at Hawaii, I really found a love for the campus and for the people,” Anguay said. “I have a chance to play for my hometown and I wanted to play in front of my family.”
Moanalua coach Arnold Martinez said Loyd’s parents, “were really impressed with the Junior Day.”
“(The UH coaches are) really trying to kick in another level of recruiting for local kids. I think it’s paying off because it made a great impression on Frank and his family.”
Martinez expects other schools to make a run at the 6-foot-4, 265-pound Loyd, but said he appears solidly committed to UH.


UH’s summer camp season continues Monday with the Big Man’s Camp. The camp is designed for linemen and runs through Wednesday. Registration starts at 8 a.m. with the clinic running from 9-11 a.m.  The fee is $75. More information is available at hawaiiathletics.com.


Former UH receiver Dylan Linkner  isn’t part of the Warriors’ summer conditioning sessions any more, but got a good workout anyway while caddying for Ryan Perez in the Manoa Cup this week. Perez reached the semifinals before losing to eventual champion and UH golfer T.J. Kua on Friday.
