The 2014 recruits were introduced to boosters at the annual National Letter of Intent Day reception on February 5th.
Coach Norm Chow told the group that his first two recruiting classes set a foundation for the program and this year’s group was targeted at filling specific needs. They focused on cornerbacks, rush ends and linebackers signing 16 defensive players out of the 23 they signed. They are still working on several more recruits.
Kevin Clune, the new defensive coordinator was introduced and spoke about the type of defense he’ll be putting together with the defensive staff. He will primarily be using a 3-man front, but will also have 4-man fronts.
The event was held at Kapiolani Community College’s Ka’Ikena dining room, the home of the college’s culinary arts program.

Graduation is a top priority of Coach Chow and the Rainbow Warrior football program. Na Koa raises funds for the Warrior football summer school program and the Warrior Bridge Program. The Warrior Bridge Program provides the opportunity for incoming freshmen and transfer students to take classes prior to the start of the fall semester, familiarize themselves with the campus and the workout/practice routine, and ensure they are eligible to play when the season starts.
