Good kine scraps

Here are some quotes that Brian McInnis won’t be able to get into his story for tomorrow’s paper:

Ron Lee on the importance of spring practice for the players: “At the end of spring ball, they want to be in the top two, because we got five JC guys that are coming that are pretty good, in the receivers alone.”

Lee on the status of the quarterback candidates: “Tyler and Inoke … I would say they’ll be competing for number ones. And Shane Austin has had a good offseason of conditioning. We watched him lift. He’s in it. Everybody’s kind of in the same boat. Kiran Kepo’o and Jake Santos. It’s finding that solid one and two and giving them reps.”

Nick Rolovich on the cyclical nature of football: “I’m excited to see how we’re going to work together as an offensive staff. Not only just the offense, but the staff. Some change, some tweaks on offense. That’s what you gotta do, because football is ever-changing, and it also works in a circle sometimes where things may have worked 20 years ago and it’s working now, similar for different reasons.”

Rolovich on the health of Kiran Kepo’o: “As far as I know, he’s cleared to participate in spring ball. That’s the plan.”

(Kepo’o had a checkup last week to get cleared. He suffered head trauma after being knocked off his bicycle last fall.)

Tyler Graunke: “Coach Lee has his own thing going on, and he tweaks (the run-and-shoot) a little bit.”

Inoke Funaki: “I want to show to the coaches and the team that I am confident and able to direct this team in the offense to the best of my ability.”
