UH’s Manning selected to MW preseason team

The Maui News

University of Hawaii offensive lineman Ilm Manning was named to the Mountain West football preseason all-conference team Wednesday.

Manning, a 6-foot-4, 280-pound junior from Glendale, Ariz., was a second-team all-Mountain West selection last season, when he started all 15 games of the Rainbow Warriors’ 10-5 campaign. On Tuesday, he was named to the Outland Trophy watch list.

Manning was the only UH player named to the preseason all-conference team. Boise State, which defeated the Warriors in last year’s MW championship game, led all schools with eight selections.

Hawaii is scheduled to start the season Sept. 26 against Robert Morris at Aloha Stadium.
