The Warrior Beat

Field work

June 30th, 2010


There was a large enough  turnout for today's unsupervised workouts — more than 60 players — to run stations for offensive linmen, defensive linemen, linebackers and ball-handling players. The 90-minute workout concluded with 11-on-11 drills. Among the highlights:

• Freshman defensive end Beau Yap made a sack.

• Defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga and strong safety Spencer Smith had back-to-back interceptions.

• Facing a seven-blocker line, Meatoga, noting the offense was tipping off its plays, juked his way in for a sack.

• Even newcomer kicker Tyler Hadden was able to get in a lot of work.

Rush end Travis LaBoy and nose tackle Isaako "Isaac" Sopoaga of  the San Francisco 49ers are working out at UH for  at least another week. Both, of course, are former Warriors.

Linebacker Akoni Lasconia said he is on track to join the Warriors in August. The last hurdle is earning an associate's degree, which he should receive after completing summer-session work. Leeward Community College's Summer Session II ends Aug. 13 — nine days after the start of the Warriors' training camp. Lasconia, who has been invited to camp, cannot participate in team activities until he earns his associate's degree. Lasconia, an outside linebacker who last played at Saddleback Community College, is 6 feet 2 and 240 pounds.

Several Warriors participated in the telephone campaign to encourage fans to renew their season-ticket orders.
