MANOA (KHNL) - It's been five years since Travis LaBoy suited up for the Warrior football team, but on Monday he came back as a special guest at the Big Man camp in Manoa.

Earlier this year LaBoy played in the NFL Superbowl with the Arizona Cardinals, but now he's in the Islands for a little rest and relaxation after undergoing surgery which will hold him out of the upcoming season.

However, he made a special effort to come and talk to the future players of Hawaii.

"I think it's important just to be here and be able to answer questions, just to let these guys here to let them know, I'm no different than you, it's just the decisions you make that allow you to be successful," said LaBoy

"It's important that players get to see guys that have made it in this profession, and the first thing he said is make sure you get good grades," said Warrior head coach Greg McMackin.

"Well it's pretty cool, Travis LaBoy was telling us to stay in school and have good habits and stuff and not go out and party all night," said Kapolei defensive end Pouesi Togialilua.

LaBoy is also practicing what he's preaching. During his year of rehabbing, he's going to work on finishing up his degree.
