"Just catch the ball, make the play" said Pinner on his thoughts during the play. "It was a little bit far thrown, so I knew if I was going to keep running, I wasn't going to catch the ball, so my last option was to dive for it and it came to my hands and I caught it."
Then in the Trojans' night session, the offense had a strong showing, especially during goal line drills, as they scored on almost every drive.
"Goal lines are always intense," said Pinner. "We always want to win. We don't want to go back to the locker room having the defense say, 'Oh yeah, we stopped you all day.' But today was definitely the ofense's day, we scored on, I think, almost every play."
Seasion kicks off again Hawaii on Aug. 29, and until then, Pinner has a list of things he wants to work on.
"Definitely technique," said Pinner. "I don't have to spend as much time memorizing plays because I'm a sophomore this year, but definitely technique, knowing where I need to go, knowing what I need to do."
