Punahou LB seeking to join UH

Punahou outside linebacker Tumuauatasi “Tumua” Tuinei is in the process of trying to join the Rainbow Warriors as a walk-on for the coming season.

Tuinei’s father is Tom Tuinei, a former Warrior. His uncle was legendary lineman Mark Tuinei.

Tumua Tuinei is about 5-10, but he is considered to be a high-motor player who is  ferocious tackler. He was Punahou’s defensive player of the year.

    Yeah!….another Tuinei?!?!!

  2. jm2375 March 13, 2014 8:52 am


    Good morning Tsaikos!

    We getting more players from Punahou than Kamehameha? Wow.


  3. jm2375 March 13, 2014 8:53 am

    Good morning NSF. Going softball this weekend?

  4. NorthShoreFan March 13, 2014 8:53 am

    One thing I do know about players from the 808….size no matter..they…NO SCADE!

  5. NorthShoreFan March 13, 2014 8:55 am

    sad….need to do a board meeting tonight and Friday got a family thing going at Dot’s

    someone mentioned bread pudding on yesterdays post….reminded me of a certain Tsaiko lady volleyball/football fanatic…lol

  6. NorthShoreFan March 13, 2014 8:57 am

    smallest Warrior?…Richard Higa?..I think his handle was.. Timex

  7. jeezy33 March 13, 2014 9:02 am

    Could see him being useful on Special Teams with his tackling and ability to run down the field pretty fast.

  8. A-House March 13, 2014 9:07 am


    another Corey Paredes in the making?

    tough, hard nose, nose for the ball, good lateral speed, quick of the ball

    with UH 3-4 defense – put the smaller, faster players on the outside

    hope he makes the team!

  9. A-House March 13, 2014 9:08 am

    of = “off”

  10. Stephen Tsai March 13, 2014 9:09 am

    True, sometimes you need role players.
    Then again, two of UH’s best inside linebackers — Julian Gener and Tevita Lataimua — are both under 6 feet.

  11. boolakanaka March 13, 2014 9:17 am

    6–Possibly–but, Dino Arrellano and Mike Akiu were probably lighter than Richard at points of they playing careers.

  12. Lowtone123 March 13, 2014 9:19 am

    #6-Go further back…Thomas Kaulukukui, 5’5″ 145lbs. The only number (#32) retired by Hawaii, so far.

  13. boolakanaka March 13, 2014 9:21 am

    Possibly the two most instinctual linebackers that I have seen at UH, and both played inside lb, were Carl Kennybrew and James Elias. Both started and played at close 210, if 210 at all. But, they had great football IQ and could straight out hit–seriously, for their size they use to straight blow up folks at practice and during the game.

  14. boolakanaka March 13, 2014 9:21 am

    12—Nice catch lowtone123!

  15. al March 13, 2014 9:26 am

    mike singletary….5’9″.

  16. tom-warriornation March 13, 2014 9:27 am

    did someone say that Tevita Lataimua was not used enough last year, until late in the season? GO WARRIORS–looking forward to our new defense; hope it can be unpredictable and troublesome for our opponents!

  17. al March 13, 2014 9:27 am

    glad to see another tuinei in the fold.

    …”apple don’t fall too far from the tree.”

  18. al March 13, 2014 9:29 am

    10…aren’t they both 5’10”?
    tough as nails, quick as silver, and hits like an anvil.

  19. Shoko March 13, 2014 9:31 am

    Sounds like he could be LB/S hybrid. High-motor is always good.

  20. Kilikili March 13, 2014 9:31 am

    Height matters, 2 or 3 inches taller and Tuinei perhaps gets multi scholarship offers…

  21. HALEAKALA March 13, 2014 9:32 am

    Terrific about Tumua!

    I used to follow the play of his Uncle Mark when he was with the Dallas Cowboys as well as ex-Warriors Larry Cole and Golden Richards.

  22. Lowtone123 March 13, 2014 9:34 am

    Wasn’t Solomon Elimimian under 6’0. That guy was a tackling machine.

  23. SteveM March 13, 2014 9:34 am

    Good morning everyone!

    Would be nice to see another Tuinei in UH uniform!

  24. Lowtone123 March 13, 2014 9:36 am

    #20-Your right. That’s how Hawaii can get guys like that. Another couple of inches and we’re not talking about him right now. High motor. One of those things you can’t teach. Either you have it or you don’t.

  25. Andrew March 13, 2014 9:41 am

    Cal Poly up over UCSB 34-17 in the 1st half. Hopefully Cal Poly can hold on and pull the upset. UH matches up with Cal Poly a lot better than they do against UCSB.

  26. PONO March 13, 2014 9:43 am

    Anyone who is willing to pay their own way to UH and walk on is a winner in my book. Good luck to him.

  27. al March 13, 2014 9:46 am

    yo…let’s not forget what a great career tom tuinei had.

    “Tom Tuinei was an All-Western Athletic Conference defensive tackle at University of Hawaii and played for the Detroit Lions and the Canadian Football League’s Edmonton Eskimos. “

  28. Andrew March 13, 2014 9:47 am

    41-20 @ the half***

  29. jm2375 March 13, 2014 9:47 am

    #25 – they did a short segment on UCSB’s Alan Williams this morning on NPR. At or near the top of most stat categories. Blocked by powers-that-be at work from even looking at the NPR site.

  30. jm2375 March 13, 2014 9:47 am

    Congrats to Mr. Fotu on his NABC All-District selection.

  31. PONO March 13, 2014 9:53 am

    UH will not play Cal Poly if they win. The BWC tourney reseeds team after each round to ensure the highest seed always plays the lowest seed.

  32. NotNasti March 13, 2014 9:54 am

    Andrew: Thanks for the update. 41-20? Whoa!

  33. Stephen Tsai March 13, 2014 9:54 am

    Solomon Elimimian used to always complain to Derek Inouchi he was 6 feet. After a while, he started appearing in the lineups at 6 feet.

  34. Andrew March 13, 2014 9:54 am


    He is definitely deserving of the player of the year award. I really did not like UHs chances if they ended up having to face UCSB again.

  35. Andrew March 13, 2014 9:55 am


    Right, but in case both teams advance again and see eachother in the next round after. It looks like UH would face LBSU if Cal Poly wins.

  36. Stephen Tsai March 13, 2014 9:56 am

    I know that height and 40 times are valued, but at Pro Day, some players get eliminated during measurements. In the pros, hand size and reach are as important as 40 times. I think John Estes probably was hurt because his reach was incorrectly measured during junior day.

  37. NorthShoreFan March 13, 2014 9:58 am

    Ray Rice…5-8…215#
    Elvis Dumervil..5-11 260# lb
    Michael Wilhoite 6-0 240# lb
    Heath Farrell 6-0 235# lb
    David Hawthorne 6-0 246# lb
    Curtis Lofton 6-0 241# lb
    Taylor Reed 5-11 236# lb

    Sean Spence 5-11 231# lb
    Darren Bates 5-11 225# lb
    Damso Nunoz 5-11 219# lb

    main thing can play..

  38. Stephen Tsai March 13, 2014 9:59 am

    Two words: Nate Jackson

  39. NorthShoreFan March 13, 2014 10:01 am

    #20…true…but our good fortune we get him…no measurement for …heart

  40. Stephen Tsai March 13, 2014 10:02 am

    Sam Mills.
    By the way, I did not realize Mills died.

  41. NorthShoreFan March 13, 2014 10:02 am

    oops…#37..all NFLers

  42. Stephen Tsai March 13, 2014 10:03 am

    Who’s old enough here to remember Delmar Johnson?

  43. Andrew March 13, 2014 10:06 am

    Alan Williams is 3-10 in the first half. Surprising

  44. NotNasti March 13, 2014 10:07 am

    Delmar the 5’7″ d-lineman? For UH?

  45. NotNasti March 13, 2014 10:07 am

    If I’m correct, yes, I’m old enough.

  46. Stephen Tsai March 13, 2014 10:08 am

    I’m looking back at old UH rosters. Why don’t I remember Lamar Young, UH’s second-leading rusher in 1989?

  47. NorthShoreFan March 13, 2014 10:10 am

    Mike Singletary 6-0 230..didn’t know he was that size..looked like he was bigger..the way he played.

  48. ai-eee-soos March 13, 2014 10:10 am

    ST: Is this coaching staff roster correct? Found this on one of the coaching search sites.

    It shows Luke Matthews as Wide Receiver Coach

    Chris Wiesehan as RB/ Tight Ends.

    *** Philip Rauscher is NOT listed. ***

    What’s up ???
    Hawaii: Here is how the Hawaii staff shapes up for 2014. Kevin Clune (defensive coordinator / inside linebackers), Daronte Jones (defensive backs / defensive recruiting coordinator), Lewis Powell (defensive tackles), Kurt Gouvieia (outside linebackers), Jordan Wynn (quarterbacks), Chris Wiesehan (running backs / tight ends / running game coordinator / offensive recruiting coordinator), Chris Naole (offensive line),

    Luke Matthews (wide receivers),

    Chris Demarest (special teams coordinator).

  49. cocbean March 13, 2014 10:13 am

    #15. You must be confusing Samurai Mike with Sam Mills. Mike was 6′ Sam was 5’9″. Loved to watch these two guys play. Both were run through a brick wall kind of players.

  50. Andrew March 13, 2014 10:31 am

    54-31 Cal Poly with 10 min left.

  51. Jeezy33 March 13, 2014 10:32 am

    “Height” and “race” shouldnt be the reasons to compare players…..

    Every short QB that can play isn’t the next Russell Wilson…

  52. NotNasti March 13, 2014 10:35 am

    I hope UH can focus and win their first game. If they can get to the final against UCI, I like their chances.

  53. Andrew March 13, 2014 10:43 am

    Wow up by 32 points with 6 minutes left. UCSB did not show up at all

  54. Turfwar March 13, 2014 10:48 am

    Just read the Blangiardi rant by Warriormojo in the last blog and I couldn’t agree more. Heard the radio spot by Blangiardi again this morning on 1420 and it’s really starting to sound desperate. Mojo is right on so many points. And I’ve worked in television for almost 30 years with some of those years with both Blangiardi and OC16. And let’s go Poly! Huge upset in the making if it holds.

  55. Andrew March 13, 2014 10:54 am

    It’s over Cal Poly will win. 69-35 with 2 min left

  56. Da Punchbowl Kid March 13, 2014 10:57 am

    Good Morning Gangeez! 😉

    Watched Tuinei play a couple of times in person last season. The guy is a straight up beast. He’ll be a hella Special Teams guys if not a very solid LB.

  57. Da Punchbowl Kid March 13, 2014 10:59 am

    #54 –

    Warrior Mojo gives the best rants on the WB. Reading one of his classics can clear your sinuses, like hot mustard and shoyu. And as usual, he’s right.

  58. Stephen Tsai March 13, 2014 11:06 am

    Like it’s been said, it was a poker game, and the buy-in was $2.3 million.
    Cash money.
    If there was any indication that there would be a serious bidder against Oceanic, UH would have opened it. Of course, UH would prefer a bidding war.
    What UH didn’t want was the promise of second-party money only to find that it didn’t exist and, worse, Oceanic then come in with a lower offer.
    As the activist once said: “Don’t promise me a pie in the sky. I want my meat on the street.”

  59. OC Warrior March 13, 2014 11:11 am

    42 – Delmer Johnson? Was he the 5’6″ DT back in the day?

  60. Lowtone123 March 13, 2014 11:14 am

    Always appreciated Sam Mills I guess because we’re about the same size but he played in the USFl & NFL at a very high level for many years. RIP.

  61. boolakanaka March 13, 2014 11:15 am

    Speaking of smaller guys at UH, I would be remissed not to my mention, my old roommate Vince Sides, I know for a fact he was around 162 pounds when came-on at UH….and saw plenty of action.

  62. Lowtone123 March 13, 2014 11:19 am

    Cal Poly 69, UCSB 38. Wow!

  63. Kapahulu March 13, 2014 11:21 am

    Is that the Final Score?

    Beau Phillips is 6’5″, Stephen Rivers is 6’7″ tall and Max Wittek is 6’4″. Kinda starting a small basketball team. Stephen is likely to go elsewhere and Max might opt for Texas. Max is a 5 star athlete. Stephen is a 4 star and Beau is a 3 star rating.

    I read that the basketball game would be on Fox Sports Prime Ticket and didn’t know what that was. However, I have DISH and see the UH game on the schedule for Fox Sports, channel 408 (I’m on Big Island). Not positive it’ll come on, but for those with DISH, we may be able to see it.

  74. bowwar March 13, 2014 12:43 pm

    Do you need the sports package to see Fox Prime Ticket on Oceanic? Anyone know any good bars to watch the game?

  75. Lowtone123 March 13, 2014 12:43 pm

    #73-Looks like he verbally committed to BYU. Because of that, he may have to contact UH first as they typically back off once a player has committed.

  76. sofaking_blk March 13, 2014 12:44 pm

    Redskins LB London Fletcher is 5’9″

  77. sofaking_blk March 13, 2014 12:48 pm

    Anybody remember WR Carl Roaches, he was 5’8″/168lbs

  78. Lowtone123 March 13, 2014 12:50 pm

    13:47 2nd Half…CSF 41, LBSU 39.

  79. Turfwar March 13, 2014 1:11 pm

    Mika committed very early in his soph year so he may have already told the UH coaches of his intentions to go to BYU. But no doubt they would take him in a heartbeat.

  80. NorthShoreFan March 13, 2014 1:20 pm

    IF. Knock on wood.

  86. AllG March 13, 2014 2:39 pm

    Tuinei I think would make a ideal fullback! Fullbacks need to love contact and at that height he would have a leverage advantage. Plus blocking runs in his bloodlines.

  87. Da Punchbowl Kid March 13, 2014 3:40 pm

    #42 Stephen, do you remember two impact players, LB Tim Buchanon & RB Edward (Skippy) Dyer, one of the best RB that ever played for UH, which includes the likes of Gary Allen & Larry Scherer. I once had Skippy’s autograph but have lost it since.

  101. Maile Tsai-Russ March 13, 2014 6:31 pm

    RE: Halftime UH 36 vs. Northridge 42

    Frustrating first half. Lots of bad calls, phantom calls, incompetence by refs overall. But what is most disturbing is Northridge getting 28 POINTS IN THE PAINT, plus 3 fouls in the paint resulting in 4 made free throws. Total points inside by Northridge 32 of their 42 first half points. Lousy defense by the ‘Bows, poor coaching adjustments by Gib.

  102. whitey March 13, 2014 6:36 pm

    not at game, so not much to say except that the Bows are coming around after being down by 16. will see if they can pull this one out and in the meantime, Go Bows!!!!!

  103. Seaside March 13, 2014 6:54 pm

    Tuinei is a great defense player UH needs him! Punahou’s defense was untouchable…..They were way better than UH….

  114. Willie March 13, 2014 7:41 pm

    Gib might have blown another one. How can you not go to Stanhardinger in a tie game with 11.8 seconds to go and about 7 seconds to get a shot off. Why?

  115. Willie March 13, 2014 7:43 pm

    Also “rope a dope” with 6 minutes left when you had the Matadors on the run. Why?

  134. AlaWai March 13, 2014 7:57 pm

    Reardon had a point. You gas your starters and you pay the price. Loss of composure happens with fatigue. Some of the bench guys should have been used to give the team a blow when the lead was at 13.

    Gib is amazing. Give him a raise and an extension. I love when we always pull a one and done in the post season. Fib Arnold for mayor.

    I am sorry gib should b fired..why foul when up by 3 and send a 92% free throw shooter to the line. Also, where was the press that caused a lot to @Northridge?

  139. warriorsfan March 13, 2014 8:27 pm

    I am with you on that one
    should not have gotten to that situation in the first place
    well the bigger Dog Bark

    138. Even with the decision to foul, I think they did it too quickly. Should have ran the clock a little more. Although they really should have just played D. Even if they hit a 3 at worst, they could possibly have time to go back and hit the game winner or go to another OT

    Let’s go Wahines!!!

    at five minutes …we stopped playing to win. we took our foot off the pedal.

  143. al March 13, 2014 8:48 pm

    although singletary was listed at 6′ o”…many alternate info listed him at 5’11 1/2″. however, gary campbell who played alongside of singletary, swears he invented the 2 ” rule.

  144. frankie March 13, 2014 8:55 pm

    Gib can recruit, but not a game day coach (x & o’s). We lost it on the bench…agree Christian’s lob was the turning point. He should have taken it on his own…gotta b a little hog cheese since he was in the zone…he did not shoot the last few minutes & ot…

  145. al March 13, 2014 9:24 pm

    nah…not gib fault. the true reality is we have no depth on the bench. we still lack some integral talent on the court and on the bench.

    the best team ever to don the rainbow uniform was the fab five. that team had talent like none before or thereafter.

    this is true

    Didn’t a generously listed 6’0″ LB out of the University of Maine want to join the Warriors but was told he was too small.
    So he pops called his Alumni which led his son being a standout Trojan and Seattle Seahawk?

    Need a bigger big man in the middle. Fotu is athletic and offensive, but his has a tendency to get pushed around a bit. I really feel like that is the missing piece. Not necessarily someone to replace Fotu, but someone to come off the bench with some weight.

  148. kev-1 March 13, 2014 10:07 pm

    Let’s face it. We put the smallest guys on the floor most nights. And I’m not necessarily talking height. I am talking bulk. UH basketball has always seemed to be on a different workout plan than their opponents.

    Dang it … tough day for UH sports…

    o.k. – back to football …

    coaching change?

    Has Philip Rauscher left the coaching staff?

    on a coaching search site:

    Chris Wiesehan is listed as RB/ Tight Ends.

    and Luke Matthews is listed as Wide Receiver Coach.

    No mention of Rauscher.

    any birdies out there?

    89–while not NFL tall, the vietnemes tackling machine was not, more like 5’11. See: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/4735/

    Tough loss last night. Watching the postgame interview with Gib, Spearman and Standhardinger was pretty depressing to watch.

    Question remains if there will be any postseason play.

  157. A-House March 14, 2014 6:02 am

    al your #145:

    gotta disagree with you – not Gib’s fault? who does the recruiting and makes the final decision on player selection?

    if bench is weak, it’s falls to the HC to insure that the bench players can contribute and this all starts with off-season and in-season practices

    should Gib substituted when 13 points up and rest Fotu and Standhardinger – point well taken

    last few minutes of the game – seems like UH wanted to pass the ball only to Fotu who was not having a good game instead of going to Standhardinger who was hot all the way

    Good morning….Mahalo Rainbow Warrior Basketball team for a good season despite all the arm chair quarterbacks that have that know how about how to coach and play the game. I remember in the Fab five days, Red Rocha had his share of negative comments whenever the Fab Five lost a game.

  159. Old School Dave March 14, 2014 6:58 am

    Old808: I have a relative who graduated from Weber State. Never heard the end of it when the Fab 5 got blown out of the water by Weber in the first round of the NCAA Western Regional at Pocatello, ID back in the 70s. UH was looking ahead as the winner of that game was to play UCLA with Bill Walton, Keith (Jamal) Wilkes and others.
