Word on the boulevard is is that former Kahuku High kicker Cameron Mercado has inquired about joining the Warriors.
Mercado was a one-year wonder known for booming kickoffs and long field goals. He moved to Hawaii in 2009, helped lead Kahuku to the 2009 state championship game, and then moved back to Florida. But Division I offers did not materialize.
If talks progress, he would present an interesting dilemma for the Warriors, who are content with the three kickers who participated in spring training. Tyler Hadden, who is on scholarship, and walk-ons Kyle Niiro and Kenton Chun are all expected to be included on the 105-player roster for training camp.
