Cole McDonald sounds off on productive spring, quarterback competition moving forward

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warrior football team held its annual spring intrasquad scrimmage to showcase the team in front of fans and alumni.

But while the game was a friendly exhibition put on for the fans, the sense of competition was very real, and perhaps no other position felt the pressure of today's game more than the quarterbacks.

Quarterbacks Cold McDonald and Jeremy Moussa did their best to show off their arms and make plays against an aggressive Warrior defense. But while both signal callers did move the chains throughout the afternoon, there were some hiccups along the way including a few turnovers that could have been avoided.

"I feel like we worked out tails off," he said. "I'm excited, this makes me want to be throwing after today and next week and get ready for fall."

In attendance was Saint Louis star quarterback Chevan Cordeiro, who will be joining the team this fall. He told Hawaii News Now on the sideline that he was really excited to join and be a part of the competition.

McDonald understands that just because he has seniority over both Moussa and Cordeiro doesn't mean that he'll be the starter come Week 1 and he'll make sure to take advantage of this summer to improve his game going into training camp.

"I want to be that No. 1 guy, and I think I should be," he said. "But like I said, it's up for grabs. And until that first snap at Colorado State, I can't say it's mine - I can't say it's anybody else's."
