Hawaii narrows quarterback competition to four

Saturday’s scrimmage might bring some clarity to the Hawaii’s QB situation.

The Hawaii Warriors are just two weeks away from their season opening game vs. Cal out in Sydney, Australia, and they are still in need of a quarterback.

New head coach Nick Rolovich had a clean slate in picking who would run the Warriors offense. There are four players who are in contention to start and those are last year’s starter Ikaika Woolsey and there is Aaron Zwahlen, Dru Brown and Cole Brownholtz.

The next scrimmages are expected to narrow down the competition to allow the starter to get the reps in preparation for the season opener.

A few players have already been nixed from being the starter and one of those is Marshall transfer Kyle Gallup will redshirt this year. There is also Hunter Hughes, who was in spring training, but he is not in fall camp right now and will be back with the team once the fall semester begins on Aug. 22.

The Warriors have a scrimmage on Saturday and this will be a chance to narrow down this group of four and one step closer to naming a starter for the season opener.
