A year after not being retained as UH’s defensive coordinator, Thom Kaumeyer has found success in Japan.
The Fujitsu Frontiers, for whom Kaumeyer is consultant/coach, defeated IBM BigBLue, 44-10, in the X League championship game.
Kauymeyer, who assists DC Norokazu Nobuhara, helped a defense that allowed 9.0 points per game.

Former UH quarterback/receiver Justin Alo also had a great weekend, leading Mount San Antonio College past City College of San Francisco, 27-17, in the California Community College Athletic Associations’ title game. CCCAA is independent of the National Junior College Athletic Association. To win a CCCAA title is considered the equivalent of winning a national championship.
Alo threw for 283 yards and two touchdowns in the title game.
Alo signed with UH in 2011. He gray-shirted that fall, then joined the Warriors in 2012. He suffered a season-ending shoulder injury that season. He moved to wideout and then back to quarterback, where he was behind Taylor Graham, Sean Schroeder, Jeremy Higgins and Ikaika Woolsey on the 2013 spring depth chart. He then transferred to Mount SAC.
Alo was used as the wildcat in limited playing time in 2013.
But this past season, he ascended atop the depth chart, leading Mount SAC to its fourth national title.
Alo, who will earn an AA in May, is awaiting Division I-A offers.
