Spring Break: Manoa

opSpring break means sun and … fun?

For nearly 2 hours yesterday afternoon, slotback Quinton Pedroza and six teammates worked on drills at Ching field.

"Some people are on spring break," cornerback Damien Packer said, "and some people are on spring work."

Pedroza, who redshirted in 2013 after transferring from Utah, opted to spend UH's spring break in Hawaii instead of visiting family in California.

"While people are having spring break on the beaches, we're putting in overtime on this field," Pedroza said. "We wake up, and the first thing on our mind is eating, and that's not food. We want to eat these weights. We want to eat these field workouts. We're getting this work for breakfast, lunch and dinner."

Pedroza moved to Hawaii seven months ago. He said he does have beach outings at Waikiki, Sandy's and Irma's. But those stops are mostly to work out, sometimes to go boogie-boarding.

"When it comes to U-Dub," Pedroza said of UH's season-opening game, "we're not going to be partying. We're going to be working. I figure the earlier you prepare, the better it will be to get ready for battle. You can't cram to get an 'A' on a test. You have to study. You have to prepare."
