HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - For the third time in less than a month, the Rainbow Warrior football team suffered a major loss at wide receiver when the team announced that freshman standout Devan Stubblefield would miss the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL in his left knee.
"It's unfortunate and we feel so badly for the young man," head coach Norm Chow said. "He was one of our top prospects and we really felt he could help us this season. He still promises to be an outstanding player for us and we wish him a full recovery. It's just a bump in the road and someone will need to step up."
This comes on the heels of UH losing receiver Vazquez Haynes (11 games, 4 starts, 29 receptions, 354 yards and three touchdowns in 2013) with a shoulder injury that could cost him the entire season and receiver Keith Kirkwood (8 games, 5 starts, 12 receptions, 250 yards and four touchdowns in 2013) who transferred to Temple.
Stubblefield was a highly recruited prospect from Saint Louis School. The first-team all-state athlete finished his senior season with 861 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns in 2013. The 'Ewa Beach, O'ahu native was also a standout baseball player and sprinter for the Crusader track and field team.
