Elements can’t slow Warriors

It is known as the “sauna effect” — rain followed by heat.

The Warriors endured those elements during this morning’s workout, which also marked the end of Summer Session I.

Several Warriors will attend Summer Session II, which begins on Monday. Many will stick around until the start of the July 26 start of training camp. And some will return to the mainland to visit family and work out on their own. The Warriors will have a week off from organized workouts, as mandated by the NCAA, and will resume UH-supervised training on July 10.

In this drill, strength/conditioning coordinator Bubba Reynolds tosses a succession of bands in several directions. The player has to catch each before the bands hit the ground:

Rush end Kaimana Padello
Quarterback Cole McDonald
Linebacker Austin Borengasser
Defensive back Eugene Ford
Kaimana Padello
Fullback Dayton Furuta

Safety Ben Scruton
Cornerback Mykal Tolliver
Safety Tumua Tuinei and wideout Devan Stubblefield
Wideout Kalakaua Timoteo III
Guard JR Hensley and defensive end Cole Carter
Center/guard Asotui Eli
Offensive lineman Fred Ulu-Perry
Left tackle Dejon Allen
Offensive tackle Matt Norman
Defensive tackle Kiko Faalologo
JR Hensley and offensive lineman Chris Posa
Cole Carter and offensive lineman Eperone Moananu
Kicker/punter Alex Trifonovitch, punter Stan Gaudion and defensive end Max Hendrie

    Jarrell Anderson, TE, says he’s not fully committed to Hawaii but UH is still in contention.

    Great pics. Warriors look fit. If commitment to workouts equate to wins, the Warriors should win a bunch….just hoping.

    Good players and good coaches equal victory.
    One missing piece spoils the pie.
    Like leaving the cake out in the rain…

    Re#5: not surprised at him backing off his commit,he’s still going to camps and getting exsposure so I’m guessing he’s starting to hear from Pac-12 schools

    Yep…that track looks in bad shape. Just another unmaintained State facility. Where do all our tax dollars go….

    If Fred stays healthy, he’s got a good shot to make all conference. Good to see him out there working with the team.

    He actually went fishing.
