So, I was trying to get comments from each senior this week, but finally had to abandon the project because, well, there were too many of them. (With laziness being my compass, I asked Mack to comment on each one.)
That meant I had a lot of leftover notes, including the announcement that the Solo Soljahs will continue.
Apparently a group of special-teams-related players banded together four years ago. The original members include Jake Ingram, Dane Porlas, Keao Monteilh, Mike Malala, Ryan Keomaka, Guyton Galdeira, Karl Noa and Bully Fergestrom.
After this season, none of the original members will be active Warrior players.
“We passed it down,” Ingram said, noting that Josh Rice, Cory Paredes and Jayson Rego are taking over leadership.
Ingram said associate head coach Rich Miano also is a member.
With the season ending with the Dec. 24 Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl, punter Tim Grasso remains hopeful of gaining membership.
“I’m an applicant,” Grasso said.
Ingram said: “The only way to get in is for the founding fathers to approve.”
The group, whose activities remain a secret, even flashes its own hand signs.
“Superman stole their S sign,” Grasso said in a kiss-okole attempt for membership.
Ingram said, with a smile: “Super Cr3w copied us.”
