Butler invited to Saints’ minicamp

by Stephen Tsai on May 11, 2017

Former Warrior defensive back Dejaun Butler has been invited to compete in the New Orleans Saints’ minicamp this weekend.

Butler is set to arrive in NOLA today.

He will compete as a defensive back and on special teams. Butler played corner, nickel and safety for the Warriors the past two seasons.

He did well at UH’s pro day in Azusa, Calif., in March.

The UH coaches hit the streets today to sell Keiki Day newspapers. Proceeds go to PACT (Parents and Children Together).

a couple days late, yet very relevant…

there has to be a photo of Tom Kaulukukui, an All American and he who adorned the only retired jersey number 32 at our University of Hawaii.

And

The 1955 team that upset the Nebraska Cornhuskers in
Lincoln, Nebraska, 6-0. Thereby, shocking the entire collegiate world with only 21 players. A miracle did happen.

Believe!

…nuff said!

A lot of credit to coach Rolo for his willingness to don a costume to support PACT (Parents and Children Together). It looks like he is barefoot to complete the Big Foot theme. A shout out also to all the coaches and athletic staff to give of their time. The mood of lower campus is reflected in their enthusiasm. Go Warriors !!! Go Wahine !!!

Howzit Tsaikos!
Rolo must be a cool dude – internal temperature that is. First he dons a top hat and tails for the spring game and now that costume. I’d be soaked in sweat after a few minutes. Thanks to all the coaches and staff in supporting the kids.

Can you give us an update on all the remaining seniors that still haven’t signed yet?

Please give Coach Rolo a safety vest!! We cannot get him run over on the road!!

Rolo is a good dude for volunteering, but he looks like a guy we called Mountain Man who lived in the bushes near the lake in Wahiawa back in the day. Spot on doppelganger. And if Naeole came up to my car on the street, I gotta think he’s looking to jack me. He always looks like he just wants to kick everyone’s ass – just because he can! I guess that’s good for a o-line coach. Excited to see what he can do with Ulu-Perry this year. Kudos to UH for helping out PACT.

Looks like Rolo’s wearing a ghillie suit like sniper’s use. Interesting…..

Capt Ron:
You’re right. That’s what he called it.
