Warrior Beat Q&A with Alex Green

About how it took longer than he expected to get to UH, Alex Green said:
“I had to go through so much to get here. I was supposed to be here July 2. But so many things happened. My teacher actually went out of town. She couldn’t post my grades. I got the grades on Friday, and I was here on Sunday, As soon as possible I was here, ready to work. I’m ready for two-a-days.” (HA)

About how the offensive system at UH differs than the one he had at his JC, Green said:
“I came from a (junior college) where we ran the ball probably 20, 25 times a game. Here, there are limited carries, but it’s going to be exciting. In JUCO, there were eight (defenders) in the box. Here there will be one or two. If you get the ball, it could be showtime.” (HA)

Asked why he chose to go to UH, Green said:
“Good coaches, good program. Not just because it’s Hawai‘i. The program is on the uprise. It’s just a good place to be for the next two years.” (HA)

Asked what he does during his free time, Green said:
“I love to play video games. I play NCAA 2010. I play with Hawai‘i, of course. Before that, I played with Oregon State. That’s where I signed out of high school. Now it’s only Hawai‘i.” (HA)

About how people mistake him for Bess, Green said:
“As soon as I got off the plane, people asked, ‘Can I have your autograph?’ I’m like, ‘Do you know who I am?’ They’re like, ‘You’re Davone Bess.’ I tell them, ‘No, I’m not Davone Bess.'” (HA)

Told that Bess also signed with Oregon State as a high school senior, Green said:
“I didn’t know that. We’ve got something in common.” (HA)

Asked what is his favorite food, Green said:
“Steak and shrimp, baby. All day, steak and shrimp. I once ate two bowls of jumbo shrimp.” (HA)
