When June Jones took over the Hawaii football program back in 1999, his first high profile recruit was two way star Pisa Tinoisamoa. And ever since he's worked his way into the Hawaii line-up, Tinoisamoa hasn't disappointed anyone. When the warriors need a play made up front on defense, number 10 is right there and ready to go.
He's got a great football name and an even better football game. And big time players make plays. Tinoisamoa is no different. He's a guy who's motor only has one speed and that's full speed. So far through five games Tinoisamoa is Hawaii's leading tackler. But he says his number one goal has nothing to do with numbers and everything to do with consistency.
Tinoisamoa is listed as a senior but since he was a partial qualifier to the UH out of high school, if he graduates by this summer he will get another year of eligibility. But with his athletic ability expect the NFL to have something to say about Tinoisamoa's future.
Pisa's next chance to lead the Warrior defense comes up on Saturday night. The Warriors and the Nevada Wolfpack hit the Aloha Stadium turf at 6:05 Saturday night.
