Fighting and tackling are both no-no’s for the Rainbow Warrior football team at this point in spring practice, but good luck keeping the game of football under 100 miles-per-hour.
The physical fourth day of spring camp mostly followed the theme of the week thus far this afternoon, with new defensive coordinator Tom Mason’s “dark side” owning the daylight.
The defense caused havoc with a slew of turnovers in the two separate scrimmage periods of practice, despite the ‘Bows only getting close to having potentially their biggest playmaker back to full health.
Senior outside linebacker Jerrol Garcia-Williams, an imposing 6’2″ 220 pounder, was expected to be the man outside last season until he tore his left anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the second game of 2014.
Now, at what he calls 85% ready to go, the 3-year-starter has looked fluid while back on the field. It’s a sanctuary he dreamed of throughout the brutal days of rehabilitation.
