Nick Rolovich likes what he saw in spring game, hopes team makes strides going into camp

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - If there's one thing that Nick Rolovich wanted to see out of his Rainbow Warrior football team, it was a desire to compete. And during today's spring game, he saw that competitive fire and more.

While both the offense and defense made plays, Rolovich was pleased to see playmakers emerge on offense, including the likes of running back Freddie Holly III and wide receiver Cedric Byrd.

Once the team can master the Run and Shoot offense, the sky's the limit for how far Rolovich's offense can go as long as they stick to a simple gameplan - get the ball to payers who can make plays.

"I thought the guys played hard and we saw that we have a few playmakers and we just gotta work at keep getting them the ball," he said.

As for overall effort, Rolovich couldn't have asked for more from his team. He left the final huddle of the game with a simple message to keep working during the summer and not forget about the hard work they put in during spring.

"I love this team," Rolovich said after the game. "What they gave all of us for 15 practices really was just solid football without all the (expletive) and I think that's a good way to head into summer."
