Colt Brennan hopes his name will be called
on Saturday April 25 as that would put him in the first three
rounds of the 2008 NFL draft though getting the call on Sunday
wouldn't be the end of the world. We will find out this
weekend if he is drafted and if so where and by whom. "You
really don't know... several teams have shown strong interest"
said Colt Brennan. Predictions have him going as high as
the second round all the way to not being drafted at all.
Global Hawaii thinks that somebody will take a chance on Colt
Brennan in the 4th or 5th round. Brennan is also recovering from
minor surgery to repair a partially torn labrum but should be
ready for practice if drafted. He will watch the draft on
the mainland with his family. Good luck Colt!

San Jose State

fourth quarter and as Hawaii faithful starting thinking of what
might have been, Colt Brennan hit Davone Bess for a 11 yard
touchdown strike to close the gap but there was only 3:53 left
and it still seemed hopeless until Blaze Soares caused a San
Jose State fumble and Brennan lead the Warriors to a touchdown
sending the game into overtime where Brennan struck again and
Myron Newberry intercepted the San Jose State chance to tie it
up. The Warriors win and move to 7-0 and the BCS dream is
still alive. Hawaii is currently ranked 18 in the first

touchdown passes and ran for another leading Hawaii to a 48-20

rushed for 3 touchdowns and passed 2 more as the Warrior
defense shut down most of UNLV's game. Brennan was slowed

Rebel defense could stop Hawaii, who ended up a successful 11
day road trip with 2 wins and a well deserved flight back to the
Brennan and the Warriors trip up Louisiana Tech 45-44

the game and to stop Hawai'i, you have to stop Colt."
