The Warrior Beat

Thanksgiving practice report

November 27th, 2008

Even Thanksgiving could not significantly alter the Warriors' preparation for Saturday's game against Washington State.
The Warriors practiced for about 90 minutes this morning — 30 minutes shorter than a usual Thursday practice.
Instead of dismissing the team for Thanksgiving, the Warriors were fed a training-table meal, then went to team meetings and video sessions.
"We're not wasting a day," head coach Greg McMackin said.
It appears unlikely Kealoha Pilares and Ryan Mouton will be able to play. If they're not available, expect these scenarios:
• Daniel Libre, who is recovering from an abdominal injury, will be the speed back.
• Aaron Bain will return punts.
• Desmond Thomas will start at free safety and, in situations involving five defensive backs, Richard Torres will enter as the nickelback.

Mark Nua, now an actor in Australia, attended today's practice. I forgot my camera cord at home. When I get it, I'll post a picture of Nua and Robert Kekaula. Guess who looks smaller?
