Quotes about the OL, Daniel Lofton, and Tyler

HSB Note: “Hawaii offensive lineman Aaron Kia has a little more reason to try to keep in contact with his brother this week. Micah Kia, a UCLA lineman, had an up-close look at Fresno State’s defensive front last week, although a back injury limited his playing time in the Bruins’ 36-31 loss.”

About how he’s been calling his brother for insight into Fresno State, Aaron Kia said:
“I’ve been trying to get in touch with him. He hasn’t gotten back to me.” (HSB)

About the plan to split playing time at LT between Kia and Letuli vs. Fresno State, OL coach Brian Smith said:
“To be able to keep both of them fresh was good for them.” (HSB)

About how the OL is getting better as they play together more, Smith said:
“They’re getting better as a group. Their communication’s getting better, they’re playing better together. … That right side’s been real steady, but now the left side’s getting a relationship developed.” (HSB)

About the uncertain situation for his father James Lofton, WR coach with the Raiders, Daniel Lofton said:
“He’s holding up good, he’s just continuing to do his job. They still have to come to work and go play. He played for Al Davis, he knows how it goes.” (HSB)

About how he got a few reps in practice yesterday, Tyler said:
“Felt good in warm ups, felt good throwing the ball and gripping the ball. I’ll work through it.” (HSB)
