Fall Practice: Day 3 Reports and Wrap-Ups

Over at SportsHawaii.com, NelsonO has some observations from yesterday's practice. An excerpt:
Coach Lee is helping out with the defensive line, specifically the defensive ends. Coach Aranda oversaw the linebacker drills.

No big surprises with the guys lining up as the first team. Cornerback Kawika Ornellas filled in for the injured Lametrius Davis. Today, right wide out Billy Ray Stuzmann was taking reps with the first team. Kamalu Umu was the first defensive right end.
Over at WSN, isleboy has a report as well.
Positives---Greg McMackin let the coaches coach.....he was surpervising walking from group to group.....
lets hope this continues......QB's and receivers spent 1 hour 15 minutes throwing and catching......
imagine that......lets hope the QB's still have arms by the end of fall camp....Mouse Davis is a huge positive...
his presence...his coaching.....positives...negatives...smiling....he is a College Football Coach.....
Imagine the offense was practicing shovel passes already....last year at this time....dont ask........
Jason Kaneshiro takes a look at the linebackers.
Paredes owns the most game action of the group with four starts and 54 total tackles, including a team-high four sacks, last season. He opened camp with the first unit at weak-side linebacker with freshman George Daily-Lyles in the middle and sophomore Paipai Falemalu on the strong side.

Daily-Lyles redshirted last season and is being pushed by seniors Mana Lolotai and Jake Heun. Falemalu played defensive end a year ago and sat out most of spring practice to rest an injury.

"We're one of the younger groups on the whole team, but we've got a lot of guys with heart," said Paredes, who moves into the middle in the Warriors' nickel packages. "We're ready to play and put our bodies on the line, and that's the most important thing."
Dave Reardon writes about the talented Alex Green.
"When you go out recruiting for a running back, you look for Alex Green," Rolovich said. "And we got him."

Washington almost snagged him first. But one of his classes from Butte (Oroville, Calif.) Community College wasn't accepted at UDub, and Green was left to choose between Hawaii -- which hadn't produced a 1,000-yard rusher in 17 years -- and Liberty, an FCS program.
Smith said he is a leader, and Rolovich concurred.

"If Alex Green says something in the huddle, they shut up and listen," the offensive coordinator said.
And Ferd Lewis writes that ticket sales for the USC game are going slowly, at least right now.
With 25 days remaining, the Warriors have distributed about 30,000 tickets for the Sept. 2 game at 50,000-seat Aloha Stadium, officials said.

The Warriors have not had a sellout in two seasons, dating to the 2007 regular-season finale against Washington and the Trojans are their most attractive opponent this season.

"If you asked me today, I'd say we'd have somewhere in the 40,000s (for the game)," athletic director Jim Donovan said. "But I hope it will be a sellout."
