On THAT play we just showed you, on the 19th and FINAL day of "Fall Camp", Rainbow Warriors THOUGHT they'd lost freshman defensive-tackle Kennedy Tulimaseali'i, for the SEASON, to a KNEE injury, during the team's LAST practice at Joint Base Pearl Harbor / Hickam this morning. As it turns out, after team- doctors read the M-R-I Kennedy took this afternoon, a torn A-C-L has been RULED-OUT, that would've SIDELINED the Wai'anae-grad, a PRIZE recruit for the program, ALL of 20-13. Tulimaseali'i's been diagnosed with a grade-2 M-C-L tear, and will NOT need surgery, his RETURN to the team...? NO answer yet to THAT question. U-H football team kicked-off "Fall Camp" back on August 2nd, checked-out of the "Dance Studios" on-campus last Wenesday, and "finished-up" on base today. Camp's DONE, day OFF tomorrow, season-opener's a WEEK from Thursday. Team RETURNED to campus this afternoon, checking into the dorms, SCHOOl starts on Monday, PRACTICE resumes Thursday morning. Game ONE of the team's 20-13 schedule, is Thursday, August 29th, against 24th ranked U-S-C.
