UH defensive back earns Mountain West honor

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:54 a.m. HST, Nov 26, 2012

University of Hawaii defensive back John Hardy-Tuliau was named the Mountain West Conference defensive player of the week today.

Hardy-Tuliau had six tackles, two interceptions and two pass breakups in the Warriors' 48-10 victory over Nevada-Las Vegas Saturday.

Hardy-Tuliau, a junior from Temecula, Calif., returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown. It was UH's first interception returned for a TD since Richard Torres 49-yard return at Louisiana Tech on Oct. 11, 2011. 

The Warriors conclude their season Saturday against South Alabama at Aloha Stadium.

If you dislike the UH football team so much, why do you even bother to read the articles? Unfortunately, there will always be people like you out there that will find SOMETHING to complain about. It's true our offense it not very good right now. We lack the right personnel for Chow's system and not to mention the number of injuries we've had at key positions, but we had a glimps of what our defense can be when everyone is healthy. A number of key players came off the injury list and was able to play. If our players continue to put forth the effort they have been doing, we should have no problems beating Southern Alabama and end the season on a positive note. Next season will be the telling season for Chow. I'm hoping our better local player will stay home and help build a team Hawaii can be pround of.

I am a bigger Norm Chow supporter than you. But even norm cautioned people not to conclude too much from South Alabama (Div. 2) or a horrible UNLV without their starting QB. Let us be realistic.

Good game-- like this kid and his quickness. He more than made up for not wrapping up the Air Force player who ran a TD over him. UNLV is better than its record-- they had some close games and they beat AFA-- bowl elible and bowl invited team-- and New Mexico another solid team.

This was a good win and a very needed victory. UNLV despite their record was a problem for a lot of teams and scored a lot of points in their games so our defensive out put was great so hats off to our student/athletes in continuing to compete and never giving up. Hats off to Tuliau and well deserved and yes for beating up UNLV. I doubt if you have ever coached and understand the sacrifices by our student/athletes and all the kukai from people like you that these coaches have to put up with.
