For the second time this training camp, the Rainbow Warriors today will have double practices. Unlike Friday’s afternoon practice, which focused exclusively on special teams, there will be a more expansive workout for today’s second practice.

Oh, yes, the players had a much-needed day off yesterday following nine consecutive days of practices.
There still were meetings. But they had most of the day to participate in off-campus functions.

It would be easy to overlook Donnie King, and not just because he’s (generously listed as) 5 feet 7.
He joined as a walk-on and, as of this past weekend, remained without a scholarship. He also is a prototypical slotback for an offense that no longer is in use at UH.
But in the spring game, the past Saturday’s scrimmage and every passing drill of training camp, King makes plays. Perhaps his size is an advantage as he zig-zags through defense. Perhaps it’s his quickness, which makes him difficult to jam at the line. He is resilient. King was one of 30 players on the Warriors’ 2011 active roster.
