CARSON, CA (KHNL) -- For almost 20 former Hawai'i football players, Tuesday wasn't a day for practical jokes, it was a day to take care of business.

The former Warriors doing what would equal an interview for their perspective employer -- the National Football League, as UH held their pro timing day in front of more than 50 NFL scouts and coaches.

"This workout is a chance for us to come out here and showcase our strengths and I think the guys tested really well, we had a real intense workout set up and I think that people could walk away with a lot of respect for what we were trying to do today," said former quarterback Colt Brennan.

"At the combine I thought I had a solid day, I definitely knew I could do better and that's why I came out here today. I definitely proved myself and ran the fastest time and that's all I was aiming for and I succeeded my expectations," said former receiver Ryan Grice-Mullen.

But the day didn't go without it's problems, as the injury bug bit some of the receivers.

"Had they all been a hundred percent today we we would've been ooin and awwin' everybody but that's life and I think considering their tight hamstrings we had a great day," said Brennan.

The bug even got to Colt as he revealed a torn labrum in his right hip.

"Unfortunately i'll have to get a minor arthroscopic surgery that will have me out a couple weeks but it's something that's real minor and when I get back i'll be back 100%," said Brennan.

And Brennan reassures fans all is well, and the islands are still in his heart.

"I think we did a lot of good for ourselves, and we miss Hawai'i, take care aloha."
