03/07/2012 - University of Hawai'i conducted its annual Pro Day for draft eligible football players at the Home Depot Center Monday. More than a dozen former Warriors participated and were put through various tests for scouts and player personnel from 26 NFL teams. Among the recent UH alumni participating were Shane Austin, Aaron Brown, Austin Hansen, Brett Leonard, Zach Masch, Vaughn Meatoga, Bryant Moniz, Corey Paredes, Royce Pollard, Liko Satele, Richard Torres, and Kaniela Tuipulotu. The Warriors receiving the most interest from the scouts were Meatoga (DL), Pollard (WR) and Brown (LB). Each participant was measured and went through various skills tests including the vertical jump, broad jump, 225-pound bench press, 40-yard dash, pro agility drill, and 3-cone drill as well as various position drills. Among the notable highlights were Pollard running a 4.57 in the 40-yard dash, offensive lineman Brett Leonard's 25 reps in the 225-pound bench press, and Paredes and Brown posting 40 times of 4.55 and 4.77, respectively. Moniz, who is recovering from a leg injury, participated in throwing drills.

(Saddleback CC), had a team-high nine tackles (5 solo), including 1.5 for a loss, and an interception in the win at Idaho.

Also nominated on defense: junior defensive end Benson Mayowa, Idaho; senior linebacker Jay Dudley, Louisiana Tech; junior cornerback Khalid Wooten, Nevada; and senior safety Donyae Coleman, New Mexico State. - WAC football

09/09/2011 - While watching film from 2010 in preparation for his team's season-awaii's vaunted passing game lacked luster in a season-opening victory over Colorado, but the offense might shine a little brighter in the weeks ahead. Wide receiver Darius Bright and linebacker Aaron Brown were reinstated after coach Greg McMackin and athletic director Jim Donovan completed an internal investigation into their Sept. 28 arrests. Both players were held out of Hawaii's 34-17 victory over Colorado, but they will play when the Warriors visit Washington on Sept. 10. Bright and Brown were charged with third-degree assault following a fight inside a Waikiki nightclub less than a week before the season opener. McMackin said Brown will start at weak-side linebacker and Bright, who has had a turf toe injury since July, will rotate with Allen Sampson at left wideout. The Star-Advertiser reported that McMackin is expected to impose community-service requirements on both players. "To me, they served their punishment and they'll have some things to do," McMackin said. "They're back on the football team. We handled it and it's family business and we are going to do what we think is right and do what is right for our family and our football team, and that's where we are." Brown is a proven player who will solidify a defense that already looked good without him against Colorado. Bright is a big target at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, and he could have just as much of an impact on offense. - The Sports Xchange

09/06/2011 - Two Hawaii starters who were suspended for the season opener after being arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault will play Saturday at Washington. Warriors coach Greg McMackin says outside linebacker Aaron Brown and receiver Darius Bright are back on the team. The players were arrested Aug. 28 following a fight at a Waikiki nightclub. They both sat out Hawaii's season opener against Colorado, which Hawaii won 34-17. McMackin on Monday said Brown will start and Bright will rotate in because of a turf toe injury. Brown, a senior from Puyallup, Wash., led the Warriors with five sacks and ranked third with 83 tackles last season. He also had three interceptions. Bright, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound junior redshirted last year after playing two seasons for City College of San Francisco. - AP Sports

08/29/2011 - Two Hawaii starting players have been suspended for Saturday's season-opener at home against Colorado after they were arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault stemming from a weekend brawl at a Waikiki nightclub, University of Hawaii officials announced Monday. Outside linebacker Aaron Brown and receiver Darius Bright were arrested in the early hours Sunday following a fight at Zanzabar Nightclub. They were both released after posting bail. "Aaron and Darius used extremely poor judgment and in turn embarrassed the football program and the university," Warriors coach Greg McMackin said Monday. "These are two young men who have never been in trouble with the law before, but became involved in a situation where they did not make the right choices." The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Brown, a senior from Puyallup, Wash., led the Warriors with five sacks and ranked third with 83 tackles last season. He also had three interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns. Bright, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound junior from Fayetteville, N.C., redshirted last year after playing two seasons for City College of San Francisco. Witnesses reported that two men struck a 22-year-old man, causing injuries to his face, Honolulu police spokeswoman Michelle Yu said. The players apologized to teammates and met with McMackin and athletics director Jim Donovan on Monday. They will be allowed to rejoin team practices Tuesday. A decision will be made early next week on whether they will play in Hawaii's Sept. 10 game at Washington, Donovan said. - AP Sports
