Fale Laeli to miss Spring Practice

About how he will not be able to participate in Spring Practice, Laeli said:
“I’ve got two bad knees; I need to rehab them both. There’s no sense in rushing it. I want to rehab it so I can start running. But I’ll be out there (at practice) anyway. I’ll be there every day.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Laeli had arthroscopic surgery in February to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. He also has tendinitis in his left knee.”

HSB Note: “Josh Leonard moves to the top of the list at left tackle. Junior Rocky Savaiigaea and freshman Vaughn Meatoga will also see plenty of reps when spring practice starts Monday.”

About Fale missing Spring Practice, Mack said:
“Fortunately, we have a lot of depth up front, but Fale is one of our main guys. (HSB)

HSB Note: “Despite a variety of nagging injuries last year, Laeli played in all 13 games and was in on 25 tackles, including 2 1/2 sacks for 17 yards.”

HSB Note: “A total of 114 players are expected to report for spring camp, McMackin said. Some will be cut after camp to make room for 25 to 28 new players coming in for fall camp.”

About how some of the cut players will be able to return in the Fall, Mack said:
“Some will be able to come back when school starts.” (HSB)

About how he has identified 10 Hawaii high school football players in the class of 2009 that he is “considering” offering scholarships within the next few weeks, Mack said:
“If we offer them now and they accept, we will stand by them.” (HSB)

HBS Note: “Saint Louis School junior wide receiver Billy Ray Stutzmann was offered by UH last month, Stutzmann’s father, Bill, said.”
