Warriors lose Alexander for the season
Warrior football quarterback Greg Alexander, who was having a stellar season, will miss the
rest of 2009 with major ligament damage in his left knee suffered in the second half of Hawaii’s
27-6 loss against Louisiana Tech on Wednesday.
Alexander, a senior, had surgery today. It is likely that Alexander will not be eligible for a
medical hardship due to the amount of games he already played this season. UH will try to
petition for another year, but this may end Alexander’s college career.
“I’m deeply disappointed with these results but it’s part of the game and I wish the team
the best throughout the rest of the season,” Alexander said in a press release by UH.
Alexander had been on a tear as of late, leading the nation in total offense per game (446)
and among the top five in the nation in several other offensive categories going into the game
against Louisiana Tech.
Hawaii will now turn to sophomores Bryant Moniz, a 2007 graduate of Leilehua High School,
and Shane Austin to fill Alexander’s void. Junior quarterback Brent Rausch may also factor in
for playing time once he recovers from a hand injury he suffered earlier in the season.
The Warriors next play this Saturday, Oct. 10 when they face off against Fresno State at
