The Warriors were back on the field — make that two fields — for today’s seventh practice of spring training. (They warmed up at Ching, then moved to the grass field.) Today was actually the halfway mark because the 15th practice day will be the spring fling.
> Slotback Cedric Byrd continues to have a terrific spring. In team drills, Byrd caught an 8-yard scoring pass on an out route. Speed and sure hands are good references for extended playing time.
> Justin Uahinui, the lone walk-on of the three QBs, directed the offense on the five-play, 50-yard scoring drive.
> The cornerbacks had a good day to add to a good spring. On consecutive plays, right cornerback Eugene Ford knocked away a pass intended for wideout Isaia Leeth and then on a blitz, batted away a pass into the flats. Second-year freshman Akil Francisco intercepted a pass that ricocheted off the hands of a leaping receiver. Mykal Tolliver made an interception on the final play of the team session.
> Azia Seei, a walk-on defensive tackle from Utah, continues to make nice plays in the trenches. Seei and defensive end Derek Thomas stopped the usually unstoppable Kaiwi Chung on a dive.
> It’s way too early for judgments, but it appears that at the start of every passing drill, Jay Dominique and Kalen Hicks are the safeties.
