HONOLULU – Monday was a busy day at Warriors practice. One quarterback moved to the top of the depth chart, while another moved to a different position.
Head Coach Norm Chow installed transfer Sean Schroeder as the #1 QB. It is not a move set in stone, but one to give the team cohesiveness and confidence as fall camp moves forward.
"It's just that daily competition. We have to have something set in place so we can get a routine going" said Chow.
Schroeder, who has displayed a humble demeanor since transferring to Manoa, added "All I can control is my end, and that's running the offense as best as I can, and try to be as much a leader as I can out here."
As for Graves, he handled the position switch with grace. "I'm taking the opportunity with open arms. I have a history with playing the position, throughout high school, and I've played a number of different positions out here. So, I'm definitely taking the opportunity with open arms."
Also taking an opportunity with open arms was punter Alex Dunnachie, who returned to practice following a plea of no contest to suspicion of DUI. Dunnachie is suspended indefinitely, but will be allowed to practice with the team.
