Mike Tresler was back at UH for the Coaches Clinic

HSB Note: “Mike Tresler remembered his days as one of those players toiling at the practice field on a sweltering afternoon. For the last seven years, the former Hawaii defensive back has been the one barking instructions during Kauai High School’s practices. He returned to Manoa yesterday to pick up some tips in the second Warrior Football Coaches Clinic.”

About how the Coaches Clinic is helpful, Mike Tresler said:
“It’s pretty open — you get good information, good sharing, I learned a lot. And being an alumni, coming back, it’s a little more special.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Tresler, who twice earned second-team All-WAC honors in the late 1980s, was among the former UH players who have moved into coaching and took part in the clinic, which drew about 250 youth and high school coaches. Punahou head coach Kale Ane and UH assistants Chris Tormey, Gordy Shaw and Tony Tuioti were the featured speakers in the morning session. The coaches then broke into position groups and most stuck around for the Warriors’ practice in the afternoon.”

About learning techniques at the Coaches Clinic that he can use to benefit his players, Tresler said:
“As far as I’m concerned we have a responsibility to coach kids the newest and best techniques so they can perform at their best and they’re safer. It’s like any profession you need to study and need to learn.” (HSB)
