HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The wait is over. University of Hawaii head football coach Nick Rolovich took to Twitter Thursday afternoon announcing redshirt senior Ikaika Woolsey will be the Rainbow Warriors starting quarterback for the season opener against California in Sydney, Australia.
What was a seven QB race at the start of camp turned to four last week, and following Saturday's scrimmage at Aloha Stadium, Woolsey, Aaron Zwahlen and Dru Brown were the three left vying for the job in week three.
Woolsey was the only quarterback with game experience at UH, having started five games, including the final four, last season. As a sophomore in 2014, Woolsey started 12 games under center. In three years, the California native has thrown for 3,589 yards and 18 touchdowns while rushing for three more.
The Rainbow Warriors face Cal at ANZ Stadium Friday August 26 at 4pm HST on ESPN.
