To spice the offseason workouts, the Warriors played a game of “tails.” Each player had a rolled-up shirt hanging from the rear waist, like a tail. If a player’s tail gets pulled out, that player is out. Last player with his tail intact is the winner.
Strength/conditioning coordinator Bubba Reynolds came up with the clever idea. While the Warriors were playing a childhood game, in fact, they were working on speed, cutting, fitness and strategy. Nose tackle Kiko Faalologo won the first group’s title when he sneaked behind two battlers — Malachi Mageo and Pumba Williams.
