New faces standing out in UH football secondary
Two new faces to the 2019 Rainbow Warrior football roster have emerged as potential key pieces this season in the secondary. Tiger Peterson graduated high school early from Kamehameha Schools Kapalama to participate in spring football while Cortez Davis joins the team as a junior college transfer.
Coaches on Tiger Peterson:
"Was able to work out when he should have been going to prom. He was here working and has made really good improvement. Going to be able to push the depth this year and possibly have the opportunity to play some," Defensive Coordinator Corey Batoon said.
Tiger still taking steps to being on the field?
"Yea, yea, there is pros and cons and it's a very individual decision with coming out of high school early. He really wanted to do it, get here for spring ball and made some plays. Showed he belonged," Head Coach Nick Rolovich said.
Coaches on Cortez Davis:
"He brings that coverage ability that competitiveness, athleticism that we lacked at times out there. He's had a really good camp so far and he's really made the transition well," Batoon said.
"A good human. This is a guy who loves football and really adjusted well to Hawaii. Appreciates a lot of the qualities that we have and extremely talented. He's going to help us," Rolovich said.
