There will be 252 competing in today’s 18th Na Koa Golf Tournament at Hawaii Prince.
All of the Warriors coaches will be in attendance.
The entry fee was $1,000 per three-player. With 84 teams, that equates to a lot of green for the Warriors.

• Joey Iosefa has been banged up, but after seven practices, he is clearly the Warriors’ best running back. John Lister also has been doing well. Will Gregory had several nice runs yesterday.
• To build up the offensive line, one of the defensive linemen is expected to move over this summer.
• Defensive end Tavita Woodard’s experiment at tight end was a success. He caught a TD pass. He was summoned to offense while the other tight ends adjust to the new schemes. While Woodard would be a nice option, he also is one of the better defensive ends, and he likely will head back to defense. Ethan Watanabe and Harold Moleni will join the mix at tight end this summer. Tana Woodard, Tavita’s brother, is in the process of being cleared to practice.
• Yes, that’s Tyler Brown, the basketball player, practicing at tight end.
• Backup quarterback Jeremy Higgins has been getting extended reps. David Graves is No. 1 and Ikaika Woolsey has been getting the No. 2 work.
• It will be interesting to see where Brian Clay and Mike Sellers end up. They have practiced at safety, corner and nickelback. Norm Chow has praised the attitude of cornerback Mike Edwards, who is being held out of contact drills while recovering from shoulder surgery.
• Yes, Kawika Borden, who played well on special teams last year, is on a church mission.
