Back to work

After a one-week hiatus — spring break! — the Warriors resume spring training this afternoon (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.). Among the things to look for:

• The return of slotback Miah Ostrowski, who spent the past three months with the UH basketball team. There will be some restrictions on Ostrowski for practices today and Wednesday, but he is one of the top contenders for a starting job.

• There should be more clarity on the depth chart at quarterback. Backups Shane Austin, David Graves, Cayman Shutter, Corey Nielsen and Kevin Spain received extended work in the first five spring practices.

• The Warriors have been spending extra time teaching special-team techniques and fundamentals. Now the on-field auditions begin.

On being named to the nationalchamps.net pre-season All-America honorable mention list, UH quarterback Bryant Moniz said: "Cool, I guess."
