Both are seeking medical hardships that will enable to play as sixth-year seniors in 2010.

Another lively football practice this morning.
• The Warriors have had a king-of-the-hill competition at quarterback this spring. Based on Saturday’s practice, the quarterback order today was: 1) Bryant Moniz. 2) Brent Rausch. 3) David Graves. 4) Shane Austin. 5) Cayman Shutter and Corey Nielsen.The order might change for Wednesday’s practice.
• Safety Kenny Estes’ right arm was in a sling today. He has a shoulder injury, and there is no set return date. It is disappointing for Estes because the Warriors will hold a scrimmage on Kauai Saturday. Estes is a Kauai resident.
• Right tackle Laupepa Letuli was back at practice today after returning from Los Angeles, where he attended UH’s Pro Day. Letuli still has not received a ruling from the NCAA on his appeal for a sixth year. Kainoa LaCount has been playing right tackle.
• Didn’t mean to slight Jett Jasper, but he, too, is competing for a starting berth at right wideout. Most of the reps, though, have gone to Royce Pollard and Billy Ray Stutzmann.
• Chizzy Dimude continues to impress at running back. Think Michael Brewster in terms of perimeter quickness and shifty moves.

Cynthia Cooper has been inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. That apparently is easier to do than being named a finalist for a UH coaching job. Last year, she did not receive an interview with the selection committee seeking a successor to Rainbow Wahine basketball coach Jim Bolla.

Gib Arnold is back in town — briefly.
He will meet with his entire team for the first time since he was hired as UH head coach a couple of weeks ago. Then he will be back on the road recruiting.
