The defense ruled in the Warriors’ final open-to-the-public practice of training camp.

Cornerback Eugene Ford made two interceptions — a pick-6 and an end-zone grab at the end of the second overtime —in the scrimmage-like session.

The Warriors also improved on point-scoring kicks with Kekoa Sasaoka and Ryan Meskell converting on all of their field-goal attempts.

After the practice, the players and fans were treated to shave ice.

    I think the point I was trying to make was that Heffernan and Elms are a critical part of the process of moving the program in the right direction. Theirs (Strength coaching) is a slow, deliberate process so it could seem to go unnoticed until you realize that it wasn’t done right. By then it’s too late. There’s so much potential now so Heffernan and Elms have a lot to do. They can do it. Terrific.

    Lastly…. Im still holding out hope that Jonah La’ulu can be a part of the receivers group as an H back. So crowded at (young) DL. Heffernan can help mold him into a svelt 250 pound hybrid able to work in space a little better than he did in high school. He looks to have most of the other necessities for the position. Quite a potential weapon. Just hoping.

    DEs were unblocked to ruffle or sack the QB. I suppose this was by design to see how the QB would react. I thought Cole McDonald had the best series. Kolney Cassel also looked good.

    Just talked to a Spectrum person about how much they are charging for UH ppv games. Said they are still negotiating from their offices in the mainland. Before they did it locally. Only 3 more weeks and nothing yet.

    These past few seasons, including Chow’s final season, the defenses always ruled but failed us in games. I’m hoping that the offense just puts up points. A lotta points!!!! And don’t take of your foot from the gas pedal….
    Score, score, score. Every possession. SCORE!!!!

    I second that! It irked me so much during Rolos first season when he would take the foot off the petal after they had a 2 score lead in the second half.

    Yesterday 60+ guys friends and family endured 90 plus heat and high humidity to play in the tenth annual Mad Dog golf event that benefits Na Koa. The event raised a little over 2500.00 for the Warrior program. A number of prizes were distributed almost all of it Warrior gear. It hilarious to see guys on the south side vying for chances to get a hat or shirt sporting the “H” I was joined by former teammates Bill Letz John Arnold and Frank Flaws. What a great day for all and of course for the Warriors!!!!

    Maddog50: It’s simply amazing what you do to support UH football. The aloha spirit lives deep within you. Mahalo.
