It’s started

March 31st, 2008
By

7 a.m.: First spring practice starts the way sports practices have started since anyone can remember … you guessed it, jumping jacks.

Coaches Gerke, Miano, and Smith on the field so far.

7:05 a.m.: Apparently, reserve defensive end Victor Clore and reserve offensive lineman Daniel Otineru are injured. They’re on the sideline along with several other injured Warriors reported last week.

7:06 a.m: Calisthenics with Mel deLaura are pau, now some speed drills with Rich Miano.

7:10 a.m: Erik Robinson and Viliami Nauahi aren’t going to do team drills this spring due to injuries, but they are running around the field. Fale Laeli (recovering from knee surgery) is on the exercise bike.

Camera crews from four stations are here.

7:36 a.m: The players have moved to their position groups. All six quarterbacks are throwing.

7:43 a.m.: Coach McMackin is roaming the various groups as the assistants drill the players in individual fundamental techniques.

7:52: a.m.: Something new — McMackin grants an in-practice TV interview. I’m guessing this was set up ahead of time to accommodate a morning show that ends at 8 a.m.

7:57 a.m.: So far, the first hour is similar to UH practices of recent years. It is kind of a back to the future feel, though, with Nick Rolovich, Brian Smith, Chris Brown and Craig Stutzmann out here.

7:59 a.m.: Mike Washington just made a great adjustment on a pass to make a diving catch.

8:17 a.m.: Plenty of fans here this morning — including two ultra-regulars. Willie Monteilh (father of safety Keao Monteilh) and Leona Watson (wife of Keala). These two rarely miss a practice.

8:30 a.m.: Brian McInnis reporting from watching the guys in orange. QB rotation: Inoke Funaki 3 reps, Tyler Graunke 2, Shane Austin 2, Jake Santos 2. Repeat.

Got to go now and get ready for interviews. I’ll be back later to update.

UPDATE: McMackin says he was very pleased with just about everything today. Said it was organized. He was very pleasantly surprised with the first-day accuracy of the quarterbacks. Ron Lee said things were “chaotic,” but they will get better. Lee and Brian Smith were pleased with the center-QB exchanges, since this was the first real practice with a lot of under-center snaps in a long time. Trivia: Ron Lee was football coach of Kelvin Shoji (Dave’s brother) at Kalani High School in 1970.

    But, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you
    how to run your website, however suppose you added something
    that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Volleyshots – Hawaii News – Staradvertiser.com is a
    little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page
    and see how they create news titles to grab people to click.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what
    you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.
