Rainbow Warrior running back Aofaga Wily is seeking an exemption to medically retire from football.
The sophomore played in just two games for the University of Hawaii in 2013 as a true freshman, accounting for 23 yards on 12 carries and one pass reception for nine yards.
The Laie native was expected to make a healthy return to the field this season, but continued to suffer from a series of headaches after participating in light on-field drills during the Spring.
If his medical petition is granted, Wily will remain on full-scholarship but it will not count against UH's scholarship limit.
The former Kahuku Red Raider was considered one of the gems of Hawaii's 2013 recruiting class after being named a first team all-state performer in three straight years. In his senior year, Wily helped guide the Red Raiders to its second straight state title; surpassing Mark Atuaia as Kahuku's all-time leading rusher in the process, finishing with 4,205 yards.
