Spring practice-day one

March 30th, 2009

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 not saying your information isn’t solid., however what if you added a
    post title that makes people want more? I mean Volleyshots – Hawaii
    News – Staradvertiser.com is a little plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s
    home page and note how they create news headlines to get people to open the
    links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers
    excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make
    your posts a little bit more interesting.
