HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warriors first football game may still me a month away, but today, with the start of the 2015 preseason camp, it is safe to say football season has arrived in Manoa.
The Rainbow Warriors will be starting the season with a core group of returnees and have added some pieces picking up 8 new recruits over the summer and will have a highly touted leader in Max Wittek under center.
Head Coach Norm Chow feels confident that this may be one the best groups he has had at UH heading into the season.
"We return so many veterans. They understand what is expected of them. They understand what camp is like all that being said we return 7 on defense and 6 on offense. We have a new quarterback that's been around for a while. So I think the expectation level is very high," said Chow.
Training camp begins Wednesday afternoon. Below is the complete practice schedule:
