Saint Louis slotback Brunn to join Warriors

The Warriors are filling a slot with another slot.
Slot receiver Kellam Brunn, a 2018 Saint Louis School graduate, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser he is joining the Warriors. He reports on Thursday, the opening of training camp.
“I always wanted to play for the home team,” Brunn said. “As a little kid, I always went to the games. … I wanted to make a name for myself where I felt comfortable. The place you mostly feel comfortable is home.”
Brunn also will feel comfortable in the Warriors’ revived run-and-shoot offense. The Crusaders used a similar scheme en route to winning the 2017 state championship. Brunn also will be reunited with Chevan Cordeiro, who was the Crusaders’ award-winning quarterback.
Brunn was a starter early in the 2017 season before suffering injuries to an ankle and foot.
Saint Louis coach Cal Lee praised Brunn as a “good player and a good guy.”
Brunn said he is 5 feet 11, 180 pounds, and was last timed running the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds.
Of his unique first name, Brunn said: “My dad’s name is Kevin, and he wanted all his kids to have ‘Ke’ in there. My mom loved Liam Neeson, so they decided to make it Keliam.”

  3. seewhy July 22, 2018 11:26 am

    Howzit Mad Dog!! 🤙🏼

  4. Da Punchbowl Kid July 22, 2018 11:31 am

    Mad dog and Dejon! Looking good guys! Go get ’em Dejon!

    Welcome Kellam!


  5. Stephen Tsai July 22, 2018 11:36 am

    There are 22 d-linemen on the soon-to-be- released roster

  6. islandman July 22, 2018 11:49 am

    20 DL players listed last season.

  7. Warbow July 22, 2018 12:04 pm

    The O-line worries me a lot. With Eli not playing this year they lack the D-1 experience.

  8. HawaiiMongoose July 22, 2018 12:23 pm

    I’m more concerned about o-line depth and experience. Without effective o-line play the run-and-shoot breaks down.

  9. suckkabooya July 22, 2018 12:30 pm

    Justus has the chance to be the next Kennedy as a 3 technique. He just needs to discover leverage like Kennedy did soph year. He has the dimensions and abilities. Just work hard in the weight room. Can do.

  10. Maddog50 July 22, 2018 12:43 pm

    After a 2 And a 1/2 hour practice Dejon was nice enough to stop and say hello. I have met him before. My point was anyway I can support one of us I’m doin it! GoWarriors!!!!!

  11. H-Man July 22, 2018 12:58 pm

    MD50 is the consummate (Rainbow) Warrior fan and former player. And all the best to Dejon on making the Bears team. As for the O-line, after watching a couple of spring scrimmages, I feel comfortable they will be just fine. Taaga Tuulima would be the starting center even if Eli was still playing.

  12. suckkabooya July 22, 2018 12:59 pm

    Offensive line must be thin with Chung having to go back to center.

  13. Stephen Tsai July 22, 2018 1:04 pm

    Good memory on the 20.
    Unfortunately for UH, Meffy Koloamatangi, David Manoa and Penitito Faalolog graduated, Kalepo Naotala got injured, Viane Moala transferred, Anthony Mermea and Cole Carter quit, and Joey Nu‘uanu-Kuhi‘iki moved to o-line.

  14. Stephen Tsai July 22, 2018 1:08 pm

    Kaiwi Chung and Azia Seei are gonna be interesting to watch.
    They’re both under-sized but quite strong. Chung might be the pound-for-pound strongest guy on the team. Does quickness and power compensate for length? We’ll find out. Seei also keeps slipping blocks. This might be Delmar Johnson 2.0.
    The one who amazes me is Kaimana Padello. In PRPs, he was unblockable. He’s really quick.

  15. Maddog50 July 22, 2018 1:16 pm

    Quit worrying about stuff. There is always quiet before you know what! Gonna go out on a limb and say the “no name” OL is gonna be just fine. There are some unheralded kids that are gonna surprise. Just follow the trail, the new signees are “skill” guys. That tells you a lot-GoWarriors!!!!

  16. islandman July 22, 2018 2:04 pm

    13. Meffy and Manoa were highly
    rated as to effectiveness last season.
    DE Keene,mentioned in the article,looks speedy in his videos .
    WR Rooks was mentioned too, Eric though Sean was a good name too.

  17. boolakanaka July 22, 2018 2:05 pm

    If you read any of the Bears blogs, most predict that Dejon, even as a FA, is on an inside tract to make the team….

  18. H-Man July 22, 2018 4:52 pm

    I feel there are three big concerns/questions going into this season: 1) Which QB will emerge as the starter? 2) How will he perform? and 3) How will our offensive play-caller perform? No questions on the D-side. They’re in good hands.

  19. Maddog50 July 22, 2018 4:55 pm

    To my fellow Tsaikos-thanks for the kind words and acknowledgement. I owe much to the program that allowed me to get a degree. Can’t do enough-as Isay often much mahalo, proud to be a Warrior!!!!!!

  20. AllG July 22, 2018 5:35 pm

    What about Max Hendrie? No mention of him in ST’s article. Hoping he is still on the team

  21. Da Punchbowl Kid July 22, 2018 5:35 pm

    Read Master Tsai’s article in SA today. It builds the sense of excitement many of us are feeling as fall camp begins.

    Best wishes for the Warriors, coaches and fans as we begin a familiar, yet mysterious, journey into another season. Re-posting Akamai Okole’s excellent comment from yester-blog because it speaks from the heart of a true fan.

    Great Morning All!

    Annual Warrior recap by the Blog Master this morning has gotten the football juices flowing again!

    It seems another “milestone” has been attained in support of the team as reported earlier in the off-season that a new low for season ticket sales is dwindling closer to the 10,000 mark.

    Time to get back on the soapbox, so those who want to stop reading now…

    I’ve been an in-house supporter of Rainbow football since they were wearing gold helmets and playing for a guy named Holmes against teams that now play D3 CFB in the NWC.
    I’ve seen students rush in to “score seats” on wooden bleachers as soon as the old steel doors slid open on South King Street.
    I watched as the white-clad Rainbows hit the turf with their “computer-generated” Hula-T and got slammed by a “small-college” NC.
    I saw the schedule get upgraded over the years as the Bows battled #1 teams; Heisman trophy winners, Rimington Award winners and various bowl-bound big name opponents.
    Always watching the team surrounded by thousands of my fellow island residents no matter if the venue was in Moiliili or Halawa because we all “knew” sumboddy on the team or who “used to” play or best of all, we were bringing someone who “going be da next stah” Rainbow…

    I plan to still be in the stands this coming season. I’ll be thankful (again) that I can drive in a little later with my Ohana because the parking lot will not be packed. We still going be there early enough to tailgate before the game and talk about if “get chance” this week or this season.
    And then I’ll head in to my seat and wait for kick-off…
    …only this season I guess I will have to wonder where is everyone else who used to be next to me and why did they turn their back on the guy they know who is/was on the team? And what about the kid who supposed to be the next stah?

    Now back to regular programming.”


  22. Not Sean July 22, 2018 8:08 pm

    I’m with you, DPK! I rarely post, but keep up reading every day and enjoy everyone’s insights and the positive comments. I too, will be there every game this year, same as I have every year since the Dave Holmes era just like you. So many great games, so many great players…both us and them. I look forward to a better effort than last year and another bowl appearance. I believe in this staff and I believe in this team. The shortcomings of last year’s team has been addressed and I believe the sum of the parts will total much higher than last year.

    GO BOWS. GO WARRIORS!!! It’s almost football season BAYBEEEE!!!!

  23. Inyoface July 22, 2018 8:10 pm

    What happen to Eli?

  24. Inyoface July 22, 2018 8:16 pm

    Nevermind just read the article

  25. Stephen Tsai July 22, 2018 8:23 pm

    Hendrie is on the team as a defensive end.

  26. Stephen Tsai July 22, 2018 8:26 pm

    Maa Tanuvasa’s son was going to join but now he’s not. I didn’t mention him because I didn’t know he was gonna join before it didn’t work out. Plus, I thought he was at Boise State. He’s not there, either.

  27. AllG July 22, 2018 8:49 pm

    Thanks ST, damn too bad it didn’t work out with Maa’s son.

  28. Bulla July 22, 2018 11:09 pm

    Brunn is a sleeper and made the best of what time he was on the field for the Crusaders. He is familiar with the Run and Shoot and is a good target for Cordeiro or anyone else who understands the offense. Decent speed with good hands, flashbacks of Craig Stutzmann on the go-to 3rd down scenarios but time will tell. Good luck to all the Warriors, old and new, and blessings to the entire coaching staff. IMUA LANAKILA!!!

  29. islandman July 23, 2018 6:16 am

    UH men’s Basketball practice begins today.
    Who is the 16 player ? Kobe Young or did i miss someone ?

  30. islandman July 23, 2018 6:22 am

    Correction, it’s 16 with the 2 walk ons.

  31. Old School Dave July 23, 2018 7:24 am

    Mahalo! Finally, some coverage about UH Football! Grown tired of stories and interviews about Tua, Milton, Taumu, and every other local playing on the mainland. Good luck to them, but I want UH news. Friends on the mainland are amazed at home much coverage local players who go away to school receive in the Hawaii media. Not the case up there, as it’s out of sight, out of mind.

  32. 808WarriorFan July 23, 2018 7:32 am

    #31 … O.S.D. … Right On Brah …


  33. tommui July 23, 2018 8:11 am


    And DPK, I go back further than you in cheering on the ‘Bows!
    Nice to see BULLA’s name posting!

    Alas, age has take its toll and I watch the Bows on TV except for the kindness of some friends, I get slipped into some of the WVB games!
    And difficult to worship at a certain tree at the practice field.

  34. iGrokSpock July 23, 2018 8:45 am

    Rip Van Winkle strikes again. When did Cole Carter quit?

  35. PONO July 23, 2018 9:26 am

    Did Mermea transfer or quit FB altogether?

  36. protector July 23, 2018 9:38 am

    I’ve been a season ticket holder since the Fall of 1971 when I entered as a freshman at the University of Hawaii. I’ve missed only 8 home games in all this time; 7 because I couldn’t get off work and 1 because of a friend’s wedding. Nothing will deter me from coming to watch and support our team. If we can survive the Von Appen Era, we can survive anything. That had to be the most painful time for most Warrior fans…the helplessness and frustration of cheering for teams that just weren’t competitive and with very few bright spots. But 18,000 loyal fans showed up for those demoralizing drubbings. The Chow Era was nothing compared to that. We’ve got the right guy, not just because he was one of the greatest players and competitors in UH (Warrior) football history, but because of his mentality, drive, expertise, spirit and obvious love for UH , football and Hawaii in general. I’m truly excited for what is to come! There’s a reason for optimism and it’s disappointing that it isn’t translating into season ticket sales. The solution and antidote is winning and I “feel the mojo”!
