There is a game within a game during 11-on-11 drills. If the offense makes a first down, all of the defensive players have to do 10 push-ups. If the defense forces a turnover or prevents a first down, every offensive player does 10 push-ups.
But no matter which side wins (or loses), Tommy Heffernan will do 10 push-ups. No wonder players have embraced Heffernan as the football team’s strength and conditioning coach.

In a money-saving effort, the athletic department moved Chacha Kinilau from the marketing department to the administrative assistant to the associate AD’s job. The position was vacated when Erika Buder-Nakasone resigned to accept a job at Punahou School.
UH still has not hired a replacement for conditioning coach Mel deLaura, who resigned to accept a job at Southern Methodist University. Heffernan is the only full-time employee in the UH weight room.
