Tail of the Warriors

by Stephen Tsai on February 14, 2017

To spice the offseason workouts, the Warriors played a game of “tails.” Each player had a rolled-up shirt hanging from the rear waist, like a tail. If a player’s tail gets pulled out, that player is out. Last player with his tail intact is the winner.

Strength/conditioning coordinator Bubba Reynolds came up with the clever idea. While the Warriors were playing a childhood game, in fact, they were working on speed, cutting, fitness and strategy. Nose tackle Kiko Faalologo won the first group’s title when he sneaked behind two battlers — Malachi Mageo and Pumba Williams.

I’m guessing the OL guys can’t wait to put the pads on to get back at all the little guys that ganged up on them.

Do they have access to showers and a locker,
or just go back to their dorm rooms stinky?

Love S/C Coach “Bubba” Reynolds’ creativity … too much emphasis is placed on straight ahead speed … I’ll take quickness any time …

LIVE ALOHA / PLAY WARRIOR / DEFEND THE ROCK … GO ‘BOWS !!!!!

Glad to see them in shape, not like the balls of fluff normy was turning them into. these guys look lean, mean, and ready to bring it gameday.

Anybody know if Feihoko is even considering staying home? #defendpriderock

Does anyone know why Breiden Fehoko decided to transfer from Texas Tech? You can read his public release statement (http://redraiders.com/news/2017-01-19/former-star-recruit-breiden-fehoko-announces-transfer-texas-tech) where he has nothing but love and respect for the Texas Tech program. So why is he leaving?

Out of the 24 commits to UMAA:
Junior college receiver Jacoby Herring (6-5, 180)
from Moreno, California, and Riverside Community College,
had 49 catches for 787 yards and seven touchdowns in 2016.

UMAA is supposed to be UMASS…
