Feature on redshirt freshmen DTs Haku Correa and Geordon Hanohano

About how freshmen Haku Correa and Geordon Hanohano are practicing with the second unit and have been getting ready to play, DL coach Dave Aranda said:
“We’ve got young guys who are going to have to step up and play, and they’ve responded. They’ve studied, they know their stuff and they’re getting better. From where we ended in spring to now, big improvement. The future is now for those guys.” (HSB)

About how Haku Correa and he worked hard during their redshirt seasons, Hanohano said:
“We didn’t really take a year off. We were trying to get better and learn the packages. We’re just really excited and learning from the upperclassmen, and Vaughn has really been stepping up and helping us out.” (HSB)

About how Hanohano (from Saint Louis) and he (from Damien) bonded after they started at UH, Correa said:
“We were friends before that, but when we got on the same team we just got closer. Plus he’s going to play right next to me, he’s someone I can trust. That’s all I need; it makes me play better.” (HSB)

About playing against last year’s starting OL in practice, Hanohano said:
“It was a reality check coming from high school and going against one of the best centers in the nation. The offense would help us a lot, tell us what we should work on, so it helped a lot redshirting.” (HSB)
