The University of Hawaii football team took their show on the road Monday morning kicking off two-a-days at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
First-year head coach Norm Chow had his Warriors take the field at 9 a.m. then again at 4:45 p.m. That's practices number 10 and 11 of fall camp.
The team's experience on base is part football and part history lesson.
"Growing up all the day way from Cleveland, Ohio you always hear about Pearl Harbor," said Warriors cornerback Mike Edwards. "But, to actually be here and see the planes in the background. It's a tremendous opportunity and we're just blessed to be in this situation right now."
"I just have so much respect for our Armed Forces across the world and allow us to play this great game," said Warriors quarterback Sean Schroeder.
"I wanted a tough Spartan-like camp, but this is like the Ritz-Carlton," said Chow. "There are air-conditioned rooms, televisions, good food but the guys worked hard today."
It's football and team-bonding exercises for the Warriors this week. They'll be back on the field at 2 p.m. Tuesday. Warriors will be on base until after Saturday morning's practice at 8:40 a.m.
