HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warrior football team is reloading its roster for the 2019 campaign.
Head coach Nick Rolovich announced the signing of eight new Warriors on National Letter of Intent Signing Day, featuring six high school seniors and two junior college transfers.
"The common thread with this group is there wasn't as much nonsense as far as the recruiting," Rolovich said. "They wanted to find a place to play with a love of football."
The eight players will bring Hawaii's 2019 recruiting class to 21 after signing 13 players on Early Signing Day back in December.
