Boot shopping

The Warriors still are in pursuit of a punter to succeed Alex Dunnachie, but they remain confident that versatile Scott Harding can handle those duties again.

Harding was the punter during Dunnachie's three-game suspension last year. He befuddled returners with his rugby-styled punts. Harding is ambidextrous.

The concern is that if the Warriors are backed near their goal line, they would like to have a punter who can boom it across midfield.

Harding also can be used at holder, although the preference would be to assign those duties to a backup quarterback. Cayman Shutter was last year's holder. He has completed his UH eligibility and is hopeful of landing a spot on a CFL roster.

Brian Hittner is expected to be the long-snapper.
