The Warrior Beat

What holiday?

September 2nd, 2013

The Rainbow Warriors will spend Labor Day in meetings and participating in a 90-minute practice.

The Captains' Council has named defensive end Tavita Woodard, linebacker Brenden Daley and receiver/returner Chris Gant as this week's captains. This is the second week Woodard and Daley were chosen; three captains are selected for every game.

The coaches also are working on crafting the 64-player travel roster for Saturday's road game against Oregon State. The general rule is this breakdown: 30 offensive players, 30 defensive players, four specialists. The Warriors usually travel with three quarterbacks, but it appears fourth-string quarterback Ikaika Woolsey will make the trip as a holder. The other quarterbacks are Taylor Graham, Sean Schroeder and Jeremy Higgins.
