Even though the calendar shows “Wednesday,” it was “Game Week Tuesday” for the Warriors today.
There were position meetings for about an hour, followed by a one-hour practice. The Warriors worked on defensive schemes, as well as one-on-one blocking on kickoff return drills.
Head coach Greg McMackin excused players who were taking final exams or finishing papers. The two starting slotbacks, Greg Salas and Kealoha Pilares, were both absent. Salas is set to graduate Saturday.
McMackin said the Warriors will have enough preparation time for the Dec. 24 Hawaii Bowl. He said he will impose an 11:30 p.m. curfew starting Sunday.
“We’re going on a business trip to Waikiki,” McMackin said.
