MANOA, Hawaii – Day two of the University of Hawaii football teams fall training camp continued Tuesday. Among the new players and new positions for some, there also seems to be a new attitude for Warriors.
With new smiles around practice from the players and staff, you can feel an unfamiliar vibe in comparison to the last two seasons. Part of the new emotion comes from the teams daily dance-off before stretching at practice.
“Well you have to have fun. This is a tough game we play,” said Warriors coach Norm Chow. “I’ve said it before we may be the worst dancers of any school I’ve ever been around, but we try, at least tried today. I don’t know about the music either.”
Ikaika Woolsey was the DJ during the dance off, playing music Coach Chow isn’t used to. The quarterback saw more first team snaps today as they prepare for Washington. No word yet on who will start behind center against the Huskies.
“You know it’s coach Chow, you know he kind of stuck in the old days,” said Woolsey. “He wants some like I don’t know Beethoven or something like that out there. Don’t let him fool you, he was having a good time, I mean he always give me a hard time that’s just coach.”
The Warriors fall camp continues Wednesday. UH opens their first game at home on August 30th against Washington.
