Warrior football: Players take over

One of the best team-building experiences is the PRPs — player-run practices.

It’s intriguing to watch player step up to lead drills and sessions.

Here are some pics from yesterday’s PRP (with apologizes for the blurriness and darkness. I had problems with the distance and that West-sinking sun.)

    Good morning all on this beautiful Aloha Friday!

    Adding to Bowar’s post yesterday… I went to the website even though I can’t attend and noted that the AMAR event is on 6/28 (Wed) from 5pm to 8pm.

    Zeno looks beefed up or is it we seldom see him with a t-shirt/sweat shirt.

    i’d like to see Genta receive kick-offs and run it all the way — maybe, attract some Japanese tourists to a game(s).

    hoping K. Timoteo get more reps at WR — height is good, but not the sole basis of placement.

    math formula below – i had trouble reading the equation — i know the sq root of 4 = 2 or 9 = 3 or 16 = 4

    anyone notice a “separation” between the Coles in off-season workout – more arm strength, accuracy, endurance, etc.?

    holy moley Andy — June is nearly over — 1/2 of 2017

    UMass players are driven by “revenge” for 2016 loss thus making for a good game.

    is there any beneift to a player for coaches to allow him to play a down or a series of downs in a game? seems like a motivation for this player and allows player ahead to get some rest — builds experience for the future

    coach: does it make a difference to substitute “lower” ranking players to gain game experience?

    can technique over come speed and power?

    PRP looking good!

    BTW, In my annual email test yesterday, I just sent 3 batches of emails to Tsai-kos who have shared their addys over the years. I also inquired about Road game attendance plans this year.

    If you did not receive an email from me, it could be because the messages in previous years have bounced and were deleted in the update. Please send me a current address and your blog name.

    bg #2: I’ve been told that they still have openings for anyone wanting to see Rolo speaking at the ARMA event on June 28th from 5 – 8 pm at Tchin Tchin! Bar. $30 includes heavy pupus and 2 drinks. Visit http://www.armahi.org for more details.

    Pics are great. Can’t wait to see them scrimmage. This off-season seems to have gone by quickly.

    Boy, I will say it again, the players look in really good shape, especially the linemen. Rolo pays attention to detail, getting the most out of the team by making sure they are fit first. He made me eat my words at Air Force last year, as the altitude for once did not seem a factor, so there is some hope for Wyoming.

    Stephen Tsai…… These are awesome pictures of our Warriors off-season workout. Heck, why can’t you place some of these pictures in the morning Star Advertiser’s sports section. Why not? Football season is right around the corner…
    I really didn’t know there was pictures like these of the Warrior football team off-season workout!!!.

    Chad Owens missed two exhibition games and Thursday’s
    CFL regular season opener. Football is here, but no one
    is talking about it. How come? https://www.cfl.ca/2017/06/20/bagg-week-1-owens-miss-extended-period-time/
