Spring practice-day one

March 30th, 2009
By

The first day of spring practice is in the books. A few highlights of an afternoon devoted to position drills and fundamentals:

 

>> After warmups, the entire team spent the first period of practice working on form tackling. Wednesday’s emphasis will be on shedding blocks, with turnover drills on the agenda for Saturday.

>> The quarterbacks appeared on target for the most part with Greg Alexander leading the rotation. Five-foot-eight slotback Dustin Blount made a nice leaping catch over the middle during drills.

“Now I know the offense. I’m looking at the right things, things are slowing down and I know where I want the ball to go,” he said.

>> The offensive and defensive lines got some one-on-one work, though without much contact, focusing primarily on their first step off the line.

>> Seeing some players in new numbers will take some getting used to, Leon Wright-Jackson in 23, for example. Inoke Funaki, listed as No. 2 on the spring roster, wore No. 20, switching with slotback Jon Medeiros. Jake Heun, a redshirt running back last year, is now wearing a green No. 5 and worked with the defensive ends.

>> Head coach Greg McMackin said Wednesday’s practice will be more individual and position drills. He said they’ll put the pads on for Saturday morning’s practice, which will include 7-on-7 and team periods.

 >> The first units today:

Offense—WRs Greg Salas, Malcolm Lane; SBs Kealoha Pilares, Jon Medeiros; QB Greg Alexander; RB Leon Wright-Jackson; OL (from left) Aaron Kia, Ray Hisatake, John Estes, Raphael Ieru, Laupepa Letuli.

Defense—DL John Fonoti, Vaughn Meatoga, Rocky Savaiigaea, Elliott Purcell; LBs R.J. Kiesel-Kauhane, Brashton Satele, Viliami Nauahi; DBs Jeramy Bryant, Chris Black, Spencer Smith, Mana Silva.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
    issues? A number of my blog readers have complained about
    my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout
    on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it
    yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog
    like this one nowadays.

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else encountering problems with your blog. It appears like some of the text
    on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment
    and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be
    able to resolve this issue. If you have any
    recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!
