MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Even with quarterback Bryant Moniz absent from Spring ball, Hawaii head coach Greg McMackin says Wednesday's practice was the best one the players and coaches have had so far this Spring.
The coaches are still putting the final touches on the depth chart. That's because players at all positions are competing at a very high level half way through spring practice.
Coach Mack attributes that to a competition called "king of the hill." Offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich came up with it. Players gets points for their performance each day to keep them on their toes.
"The first couple weeks, it was just everyone getting to know the defense or offense, getting to know the schemes. So now that everyone know what they have to do, it's time to make plays and show what you have," said defensive back Aaron Brown.
"The guys are coming along pretty well. I'm pleased with their advancement. I'm really happy the way the coaches are playing, the enthusiasm, the way the coaches are coaching," said McMackin.
