Aloha Rainbow Warrior football fans,

We were so happy to close our October home stand with our families and fans cheering us on to our victory over New Mexico State University at the Clarence TC Ching Athletics Complex. We heard you and were energized by every fan that was there being the loudest “12th man” they could be! It was also a special night as we remembered Colt Brennan and retired his jersey. We know he holds a special place in the heart of Hawaii’s fans. We are very excited to welcome a full stadium of fans to our last two home games and are confident that our Warriors will be giving 100% to play the best football possible in front of our most loyal supporters.

Big MAHALO to Don and Marion Murphy and our partners at the Hawai‘i Bowl Foundation. The 24th Annual Murphy’s Pigskin Pigout was held in a modified format to meet COVID restrictions in early October. Our staff was happy to meet those of you that picked up your meal(s) or store items on Thursday, October 7th. We are ever appreciative of the community’s continued support and were able to raise nearly $10,000 from this event!

We have five games left in our 2021 season; three on the road and two here at home. We remain focused on winning our conference championship and winning a post-season bowl game. Every day, your Warriors work hard at practice to improve their techniques and execution of our play book. Included in this effort, is their continued focus on finishing the year strong in the classroom despite the rigorous travel schedule they face.

Finally, you should have received a mailer asking for a year-end contribution to Nā Koa. Your donation, as with all contributions to Nā Koa, goes directly to support the football program. (Visit uhfoundation.org/NaKoa2021 to make your contribution today.) And, in case you have yet to renew your membership, it’s not too late! Visit nakoa.org/membership to join today.

On behalf of the players and coaches, Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for your continued support!

Take care, stay safe, and Win Every Day!

Todd Graham
Warrior Head Coach
