Assistant coach Robbie Abel spoke with the media about the teams physicality, “The DNA of our team is rally physical play. Just by looking at the trainings, you can see what the boys love to do.” Abel continued, “It’s just executing the detail and to putting all of our effort into areas that are going to get us results.”
The Warriors opened the season with a 31-29 loss to the San Diego Legion. A loss that saw the Warriors close on a 14-0 run over the final six minutes.
That run instilled confidence in the group that they can be a great team.
Jamie Lane “The culture is really good. We didn’t have much of a preseason so we’re treating this as if it’s the preseason. If we put it all together we can be a pretty good team. It’s just tightening the screws.”
