April 18, 2009

About the long, busy day that their coaching staff will have, Mac said:
“But it’s worth it.” (HSB)

HSB Note :”The staff hosts the second Warrior Football Coaches Clinic this morning, then conducts a practice and scrimmage in the afternoon. The clinic is open for coaches of all levels and has attracted participants from Samoa and Japan this year. Registration begins at 8 a.m., with McMackin addressing the coaches at 9:15 a.m. Punahou head coach Kale Ane will speak on the “psychology of coaching,” and new UH assistants Chris Tormey and Gordy Shaw will lead sessions on special teams and offensive line play. The offensive and defensive coaches will lead breakout sessions after lunch.”

Looking forward to their coaches clinic, Mac said:
“It’s really exciting having the coaches here. We want to do a good job for the coaches because we’re all in it for Hawaii.” (HSB)

About how they will play some of their first team players in today’s scrimmage after they sat out the Maui scrimmage, Mac said:
“We’re going to play more of our veteran guys and just get more reps. We’ve put other things in, so we’re going to take a look and let them compete.” (HSB)

Note: Practice is scheduled for 3pm at Ching Field, with the scrimmage scheduled to start around 4pm.
