On a busy Wednesday, running back Dayton Furuta was named as a preseason candidate for the Doak Walker Award.
The award goes to the college football’s best running back. Ewell Doak Walker II played at Syracuse, and was the 1948 Heisman Trophy winner. He played six seasons of professional football.
Furuta, a senior from Mililani, rushed for 459 yards last season, his first as a running back.
The Warriors had their final organized conditioning drill and player-run practice this morning on the grass soccer field. But the workouts might not have ended. Several players vowed to continue working out leading to July 25 reporting day for training camp.
