Rainbow Warriors hold game night experience at Aloha Stadium

Exactly two weeks away from kickoff to their season opener at Colorado State, the University of Hawaii football team had a game-day experience at Aloha Stadium on Saturday night.

Head coach Nick Rolovich held their training camp practice under the lights on their home-field where the Rainbow Warriors took-part in a scrimmage that pitted the offense against the defense.

Both sides of the ball walked away feeling good about itself as the defense delivered big hits and big plays while the offense moved the ball and succeeded in pressure situations.

The on-going quarterback battle continued as Cole McDonald, Chevan Cordeiro and Jeremy Moussa received most of the snaps.

McDonald unofficially went 8-13, 100 yards passing.

Cordeiro started 8-10, 109 yards and two touchdowns before finishing 12-18, 140-yards and two scores. 

Moussa went 10-18, 111 yards and one score of his own.

Running back Dayton Furuta put it best following the practice when he told KHON2 Sports Director Rob DeMello that he wouldn't want to be Coach Rolo.

"They're definitely not making it easy. I wouldn't want to be that guy, these guys are battling and our entire team is getting better because of it."

The Rainbow Warriors will begin their final week of training camp on Monday.

Ren Clayton will have more on Saturday's practice at Aloha Stadium on Sunday's KHON2 News at Six.
