Tyler Hadden’s graduation opens the kicking competition this spring.
Kainoa McDonald, a 2014 Punahou graduate, redshirted last last season.
But two familiar kickers — Joe Uglietto and Aaron Novoa — are expected to be in spring training.
Uglietto, who was raised in Massachusetts, was Colgate’s starting kicker in 2011. He then transferred to UH, and redshirted in 2012. In 2013, he was a backup to Hadden, making one road trip. He did not play football last year.
Novoa played at Sacramento City College before transferring to UH. He participated in last year’s spring ball, but was not invited to training camp. He’s back with the Warriors this semester.
