af2 Assigns Tony Tata to the Hawaiian Islanders

June 5, 2003 - arenafootball2 (af2) - Hawaiian Islanders News Release

HONOLULU – The offices of arenafootball2 today announced the assignment of former St. Louis High School and University of Nebraska star Tony Tata to play for the Hawaiian Islanders.

The 6-3, 270 pound Tata was an all-state performer for St. Louis and earned Player of the Year honors in 1997. He then went on to the University of Nebraska and was a member of the Cornhusker team for three years.

The Islanders also activated Josh White from the injured list. White is Hawaii’s third leading rusher with 102 yards on 22 carries.

To make room for the two players, Hawaii placed quarterback Darnell Arceneaux and tight end Morrie row on the short term injured reserved list. Arceneaux started Hawaii’s first 24 games but sat out last weekend’s game against Louisville due to a hand injury. Roe injured his groin in the Louisville game and will also be out for two weeks.

The Islanders (7-2) travel to Little Rock, Arkansas this Saturday to face the Arkansas Twisters (4-4) in a key inter-conference battle. Kick off is scheduled for 2 p.m. HST and can be heard live on KUMU2 AM 1500 or on the Internet at
