In two weeks, UH’s quarterback situation will gain a new entry.
Aaron Zwahlen will return to Modesto, Calif., on May 21 after completing a two-year church mission. It will be a short stay. That Memorial Day Weekend, Zwahlen will head to Hawaii for Summer Session I and the start of his career as a Warrior. Thanks to recon by his father, Dr. Lynn Zwahlen, he has a place to live near the campus and two roommates (slotback Dylan Collie and safety Damien Packer).
Missionaries are limited to exchanging e-mails every Monday and using Skype twice a year — on Christmas and Mother’s Day. Dr. Zwahlen said his e-mails contain updates on the Warriors. Aaron’s e-mails mostly detail his missionary work. But Dr. Zwhalen said Aaron works out for an hour each morning before studying and doing mission He also brought a football along for his rare free time. Dr. Zwahlen said a family friend, who recently was on the East Coast, noted that Aaron looked “bigger” than when he left for the mission.
As a senior, Zwhalen made ESPN’s top 300 list of prospects, ranking 153rd overall and No. 10 at quarterback. BYU, Duke, Northwestern, Oregon State, Texas Tech and Washington State recruited Zwahlen, who instead stuck to his commitment by signing with UH.
