Yesterday, Coach Hohensee called in and talked to Thunder color analyst Brian Perkins while Perkins filled in as host on In the Huddle with Ragz on 750 AM.
Here are some highlights from the interview:
On the Thunder’s penalty issues last year:
“We didn’t play smart. We didn’t make good decisions. We were the most penalized team in the history of Arena Football…that’s just a recipe for failure. We won’t be that way this year…Everything we do will be with a purpose.”
Coach Hohensee’s Iowa Barnstormers surrendered the fewest penalty yards of any team in the AFL last season, so he definitely has a reputation for discipline.
On open tryouts and what he’s looking for:
“A man among boys. Someone who looks like they don’t belong there…they’ve got to understand how to play their positions so we can teach them our system and the Arena game itself.”
