The Warriors — somber and respectful of today’s historical significance — are scheduled to depart this afternoon on a non-stop flight to New York.
“My heart goes out to anyone who’s lost loved ones,” quarterback Cole McDonald said. “It’s a day to remember.”
Offensive lineman J.R. Hensley spoke of how the 9/11 attacks “affected not just our nation, but the whole world.”
The Warriors are set to arrive in New York tomorrow morning. They will practice tomorrow afternoon. The rest of their practices are expected to start in same time frame as Saturday’s noon kickoff.
