Super time for UH
Two days before the Super Bowl, Greg McMackin will hold the draft for the University of Hawaii football team's Super Games.
The Warriors new head coach will have 10 seniors draft the rest of the players on Friday. The teams will compete for points in schoolwork, as well as improvement in strength and speed.
"There will be minuses for missing classes and study halls, plusses for good grades and progress in training," McMackin said.
Offseason organized weight training begins Monday, with three sessions a week, under the supervision of strength and conditioning coach Mel deLaura.
The fun day is next Wednesday, when the Super Games commence. The teams will compete in a variety of events including basketball, water polo, relays, arm wrestling and shuttle relays.
"We did this at Texas Tech," McMackin said. "It's a fun way to condition and for the players to learn to be part of a team. The guys will enjoy it.
"I feel like our conditioning is in great hands. (DeLaura) and Tommy (Heffernan) and their staff have added to our fourth-quarter play."
