  11/21/20 - Kohl LevaorSr/2021, Hawaii, 6-5, 350 (DS#999 OG) + More +

  University of Hawai'i head coach, Todd Graham, announced during Tuesday's media availability that veteran guard, Kohl Levao, will miss the remainder of the season due to a leg injury. "He's had the same reoccurring injury and he's been a champion. He's tried to work through it, but it's just one of those deals. He had a leg injury and had it again in a game against Wyoming, missed the New Mexico game, then came back for this San Diego game. Mid-way through the 3rd quarter he did it again. For his future it was something he needed to get fixed, because I think that is in his best interest as well. He's a warrior. He's a tough guy to basically try to play through it," Graham told reporters. Levao has played in 19 games in his Rainbow Warriors career, starting in all but one of those games (18). - khon2.com

  11/08/20 - Chevan CordeirorSo/2023, Hawaii, 6-0, 190 (DS#52 QB) + More +

  Chevan Cordeiro passed for four touchdowns - including a pair to Zion Bowens just 70 seconds apart - and ran for another score to help Hawaii beat New Mexico 39-33 on Saturday night. Cordeiro was 33-of-43 passing for 410 yards with two interceptions and scored on a 5-yard run in the first quarter. Nick Mardner had six receptions for 147 yards and a touchdown for Hawaii (2-1, 2-1 Mountain West Conference). Cordeiro rolled left to escape pressure and hit Calvin Turner, who evaded five would-be tacklers on his way to a 64-yard touchdown that gave Hawaii the lead for good early in the fourth quarter. Jared Smart made a leaping, contested catch in the corner of the end zone for the 2-point conversion that made it 36-30. Tevaka Tuioti was 17-of-31 passing for 181 yards and two TDs and added 71 yards rushing on five carries for New Mexico (0-2, 0-2). Nathaniel Jones and Bobby Cole each had 96 yards rushing.

George Steinkamp made the second of his four field goals to give the Lobos a 13-point lead early in the second quarter but Mardner's 42-yard touchdown catch made it 20-14 at halftime. Cordeiro hit Bowns for a 42-yard score on the opening drive of the second half and, after New Mexico went three-and-out, Bowers scored on a diving 40-yard catch to give the Rainbow Warriors a 28-20 lead with 11:55 left in the third quarter. A 28-yard TD run by Jones about two minutes later and a 24-yard field goal by Steinkamp early in the fourth quarter gave New Mexico a 30-28 lead. The game was played without fans due to COVID-19 restrictions in the island of Oahu. - AP College Football

  11/05/20 - Eugene FordrSr/2021, Hawaii, 6-1, 210 (DS#999 SS) + More +

  The University of Hawaii football team will be without one of its defensive alphas for the rest of the 2020 season. During a virtual press conference on Monday, Hawaii head coach Todd Graham confirmed that senior safety Eugene Ford is done for the year after suffering a lower leg injury in a 31-7 loss to Wyoming on Friday. Ford was viewed as one of the leaders of the team, and he backed it up with his play. In the team's season-opening win over Fresno State, Ford had two interceptions and four tackles. Although he's a senior, the 2020 season does not count against a player's eligibility due to the nature of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Ford will still be a senior during the 2021 season. - KHON2.com

  10/24/20 - Chevan CordeirorSo/2023, Hawaii, 6-0, 190 (DS#52 QB) + More +

  Chevan Cordeiro and Calvin Turner each scored twice as Hawaii beat Fresno State 34-19 on Saturday night in the Mountain West Conference and season openers for both teams. Hawaii entered having lost eight of the last nine games against the Bulldogs. Cordeiro completed 20 of 30 passes for 229 yards. Turner finished with 60 yards rushing, and Miles Reed added 109 yards on the ground on 21 carries for Hawaii. Eugene Ford had two interceptions and Jeremiah Pritchard one. The game featured two of the six first-year head coaches in the Mountain West Conference. Todd Graham is the first coach at Hawaii to win a debut since Bob Wagner in 1987. Fresno State’s Kalen DeBoer was on Indiana’s coaching staff last season and was the Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator under Jeff Tedford from 2017-18. Cordeiro had scoring runs of 20 and 3 yards as Hawaii built a 17-13 halftime lead. Turner's 2-yard touchdown run stretched Hawaii's lead to 24-13, and his 4-yard TD capped the scoring with about 5 minutes to play. Fresno State's Jake Haener was 17-of-31 for 289 yards passing with a touchdown and three interceptions. Due to state COVID-19 protocols, no fans were allowed inside 41,031-seat Bulldog Stadium. - AP College/Hawaii Football

  10/23/20 - Penei PavihirJr/2022, Hawaii, 6-2, 245 (DS#50 ILB) + More +

  After two solid seasons as a contributor at linebacker in which he played in all 26 games as a true freshman and sophomore, Pavihi was tabbed to be the successor of Jahlani Tavai, who was a second-round pick of the Detroit Lions in the 2019 Draft. However, just days before Hawaii's 2019 season opener against Arizona, Pavihi suffered a serious right knee injury which required surgery. After months of rehab, and a move to a new position as a defensive end, Pavihi is now elated to be making his return this weekend against the Bulldogs. "I'm really excited just to get on the field with the boys and a whole new coaching staff. At this time last year I got injured, and it's been hard for me mentally just to accept it," said Pavihi. "I started digging deeper into my faith. Everything happens for a reason. All the hard work, and not just myself but the training room, physiotherapy, just being around the boys and coaches. They helped me back on my feet and I'm back on the field." - Khon2.com

  10/17/20 - Miles ReedrJr/2022, Hawaii, 5-08, 190 (DS#71 RB) + More +

  Quarterback Chevan Cordeiro, running back Miles Reed, defensive back Eugene Ford and safety Khoury Bethley have been named the team captains for the University of Hawaii football team for the 2020 season. Out of the four captains, Ford is the lone senior of the group. "Just being here over the past year, understanding how the system works and the guys around me, they're like brothers now," Ford said in a Tuesday morning media call. "Coming in, you never know what to expect so just over the years, just growing with some of the guys that have been here, the opportunity is great. Just taking on that role, the way I attack my day is much different as opposed to being an asset to the team, now I have to lead. I have to lead by example or it's vocal or my actions." Reed is a redshirt junior, Bethley is a true juniors and Cordeiro is a redshirt sophomore. Cordeiro enters the 2020 season as the team's unquestioned starting quarterback. New head coach Todd Graham has also called Cordeiro the leader of the team. - khon2.com

  10/17/20 - Kohl LevaorSr/2021, Hawaii, 6-5, 350 (DS#999 OG) + More +

  The versatile Kohl Levao has played all three spots on the line - tackle, center, and guard - in his time at UH. In 2018, he started all 14 games, however he missed the majority of last season due to injury and ended up redshirting. The 6-6, 350-pound senior is back to full strength and Bennett raves about him: "He's a big, athletic guy who loves to get his pads down and run people over. But he's also a very intellectual players. He's one of those guys I trust on the sideline because he sees the whole field and can help fix situations. He's bought in and has become a great leader." - khon2.com

  10/11/20 - Penei PavihirJr/2022, Hawaii, 6-2, 245 (DS#50 ILB) + More +

  The big story at the position is the return of stud middle linebacker Penei Pavihi. The native of Pago Pago, American Samoa accounted for 87 total tackles as a sophomore in 2018 and was set to be the unquestioned leader of the defense in 2019. However a preseason injury shelved him for the entire year. Yoro says Pavihi has wroked hard to make his comeback and is now ready to go full tilt. "Having Penei back in the mix with us is huge. With his size and athleticism, he's someone we need to have on the field. You couple his play with the skill set of the other guys, and it's really got us excited." - KHON2.com

  07/18/20 - Aaron CephusrSr/2021, Hawaii, 6-3, 200 (DS#192 WR) + More +

  As the newest member of the University of Hawaii football team, wide receiver Aaron Cephus joins the Rainbow Warriors as a graduate transfer from Rice. Cephus did not play in the 2019 season due to an indefinite suspension that stemmed from an unspecified violation of team rules during his freshman season. During his suspension, he used that time to work on himself and earned a degree from one of the nation's top academic schools.

As a graduate transfer, Cephus has one year to play for UH but will be immediately eligible. Cephus caught 10 touchdowns during his rice career - five as a freshman and five as a sophomore. During his redshirt freshman season in 2017, he led the FBS in yards per catch as his 25 total receptions came with 24.9 yards per catch. During his sophomore season, Cephus caught 40 passes for 565 yards. Perhaps his best game that year came against Hawaii in a 43-29 loss for the Owls as he caught five passes for a season-high 97 yards and a touchdown on Sept. 8, 2018. - Nexstar Broadcasting

  06/18/20 - Rico BusseyrSr/2021, Hawaii, 6-1, 190 (DS#41 WR) + More +

  The NCAA on Wednesday issued a multi-phased model that would permit the University of Hawaii football team to begin full practice as soon as July 31, pending all necessary city, state and university approval. UH is scheduled to open its season Aug. 29 against Arizona in Tucson, depending upon the COVID-19 impact. Under the blueprint announced by the NCAA Division I Council, the Rainbow Warriors could begin team workouts, weight training, conditioning and film review sessions with coaches on July 6 as what is being called an "enhanced summer access."

On July 17 they could begin meetings and walk-through sessions but would not be permitted the use of pads or helmets. "Our goal is to be able to meet the schedule in an approved, healthy and safe manner," said David Matlin, UH athletic director. In addition, the NCAA is waiving the 110-member training camp roster limit to give teams flexibility in case there are positive COVID-19 tests. The plan had been proposed last week by the NCAA Football Oversight Committee. - Honolulu Advertiser
