More quotes from Saturday from Warrior training camp

About how the players appreciating being able to put on pads yesterday, Brashton Satele said:
“After a long summer of just lifting, lifting and more lifting, to come back and hit somebody, it feels good. We’ve got stuff to work on, but as a team we looked good. Our offense especially looked really great today.” (HA)

About getting used to having pads on, Corey Paredes said:
“Without any pads on, you kind of feel like you can fly around everywhere because no one is really hitting you, but today was definitely fun to finally get some pads on.” (HA)

About how he likes the progress that his team has been making, Mac said:
“The effort is really good, we’ve worked them hard. We just have to continue to get better.” (HA)

About how he had a problem with a cramp in his right leg in practice yesterday, Tank Hopkins said:
“I just had a couple of cramps,. They were just icing me down and making sure it wasn’t my hamstring.” (HA)

About how they had Hopkins sit out to be safe, Mac said:
“We didn’t want to take any chances with him so we pulled him out for the day.” (HA)

About adding Aaron Bain as a student manager this season to help make up for the loss of assistant receivers coach Craig Stutzmann, Mac said:
“He can help us on the field and he gets another year of education. He’s been here, Aaron obviously really knows the offense and can be a big help to us this season.” (HA)

HA Note: “Bain, who caught 52 passes for 557 yards and six touchdowns last season — including eight grabs for 102 yards and two TDs in the Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl — will be on scholarship.”

About having Brashton Satele sit out most of the team periods after his shoulder was hurt, Mac said:
“We’re just being careful with him.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “Jake Heun took most of the repetitions in Satele’s place, sharing time with Mana Lolotai, who worked primarily at outside linebacker.”
