Spring Practice update

About how the tape of the scrimmage will tell them a lot about their players, Ron Lee said:
“Going in a live situation you find out where the guys are. We got a lot of plays, nobody got hurt, got a lot on tape. A lot of good stuff to look at.” (HSB)

About how they are improving but still have much more to improve, Mac said:
“I think we’re getting and better and better, but we have a ways to go. This isn’t by any means where we want to be. I think we’re getting better and you can see it.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Where most of the regulars sat out the hour-long scrimmage on Maui, McMackin said most of the starters are expected to play in Saturday’s session.”

HSB Note: “Senior center John Estes sat out the scrimmage, but the other four spring starters — tackles Aaron Kia, guards Raphael Ieru and Ray Hisatake with Matagisila Lefiti filling in at center — took 15 of the 60 snaps in the Warriors’ first live-tackling session. The line was flagged for one holding penalty and a false start in the scrimmage. Two other plays would likely have been sacks had quarterbacks been open to contact.”

Pleased with the progress the OL is making, OL coach Gordy Shaw said:
“I’m very happy with the progress that we’ve made. We played a pretty clean scrimmage as far as mental errors. One of our emphasis this spring was to reduce the penalties we have and understand the use of our hands is allowed but not everywhere and anywhere. … We’re starting to play fast and that comes from understanding what we’re doing.” (HSB)

About the INTs by Kenny Estes and him in the scrimmage, Spencer Smith said:
“I think it’s a good starting point for us. It’s our first scrimmage together as a unit, and we saw where we are right now and know we can get better.” (HSB)

Praising the play of their secondary in the scrimmage, Mac said:
“I thought they did a good job of tackling and doing their techniques.” (HSB)

About their QBs, Ron Lee said:
“They’re all doing a good job. The three guys are all right in there. In the next two weeks it’s going to be very interesting.” (HSB)
