George Daily-Lyles commits to the Warriors!

HA Note: “The best defensive player from one of the top high school football teams in California has accepted a scholarship from the University of Hawai’i.”

About his commitment to the Warriors, MLB George Daily-Lyles said:
“Yes, I’m going to be a Warrior.” (HA)

HA Note: “Daily-Lyles is 5 feet 11, 220 pounds and runs 40 yards in 4.7 seconds. He turned down an offer from Arizona. He also received interest from UCLA, Colorado State and New Mexico. Scouts liken Daily-Lyles to former Warrior linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa, now with the St. Louis Rams.”

Praising Daily-Lyles, Long Beach Poly head coach Raul Lara said:
“He’s a tenacious football player. The way he takes control of the game — calling the signals and making plays — it’s pretty neat to watch him.” (HA)

HA Note: “During the day, Daily-Lyles can be found at one of three places: the football field, weight room or class room. He has a 3.2 grade-point average, and aspires for a career in sports medicine.”

About how Daily-Lyles is a good student, Long Beach Poly’s academic coach Monica Kim said:
“He’s a great student, very diligent. He’s a great kid all around. He’s very affable, and has great character.” (HA)

About how Daily-Lyles is popular, Lara said:
“Everybody likes him. He’s the kind of person you would want to hang out with. He’s trustworthy. And he takes care of business.” (HA)

About football, which he started playing when he was 7, Daily-Lyles said:
“I never thought (football) would take me some place.” (HA)

About how he was LB coach, then defensive coordinator before becoming their head coach, Lara said:
“I played linebacker at Poly, and that was the position I coached. We’ve had some great players, and George is in that group. It’s really neat seeing him do things there.” (HA)

HA Note: “The school also used to be a football pipeline to Manoa: quarterback Michael Carter, wideout Chris Roscoe, linebacker Mark Odom and safety Daniel Ho-Ching. It was Ho-Ching who called Daily-Lyles last year to tell him to watch UH football games. Lara, who is close friends with Carter, also spoke highly of the Warriors.”

About his reaction to getting the offer from UH last wek, Daily-Lyles said:
“I decided to commit.” (HA)

About how he surfs about once a month now, Daily-Lyles said:
“It’s a good workout.” (HA)
