Coach Nick Rolovich brings "Run and Shoot" offense back to hawaii Warriors
June Jones is a good football coach and was able to run Norm Chow's offense successfully for many years. The one thing I learned about this offense is that it requires a special QB with a very quick "fast twitch" release, as they are relied on to make quick and decisive reads. This offense also takes each receiver knowing their individual role in the "scheme" and also reacting off of what alignment the defense gives them pre/post snap. The best QB to ever operate in the Run and Shoot was Colt Brennan, who took advantage of this high scoring offense, after spending time at the University of Colorado Boulder. Coach Rolovich also personally ran the run and shoot for Coach June Jones, as a University of Hawaii QB and will hope to pass his knowledge on to Sophomore QB Cole Mcdonald and the rest of the warriors offense.
Does Hawaii Have the talent to operate the Run and Shoot efficiently ?
The run and shoot has seen new "zone blitzing" concepts that have nearly left this historic offense that was a product of the United States Football League (USFL). There have been many other variations of the run and shoot that have been implemented in other offenses like the "Air Raid" and other offenses that are pass heavy. If the proper reads are not made and/or the receiver and QB are not on the same page, this offense can also produce many turnovers. In high scoring affairs, defenses who can create the most turnovers for their team normally will reign supreme. I do however, think this match-up between the Warriors and the Rams is going to be extremely fun to watch on August 25th at Canvas Stadium in beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado.
Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 2018 Roster
Colorado State has not had a defense in the top 80 since 2006.
The warriors are going to come out with the pass heavy run and shoot offense that has been "diminished" in some respect nationally. The fact that the Rams have struggled tremendously in defending the pass over the past 11 seasons is not a good sign and will leave the rams defensive backs high and dry. That being said, the Rams are looking for a breakout season with having obtained 52, "3-Star" recruits, according to SB nation.

Graduate Transfer Former Washington Husky K.J Carta-Samuels at the helm of the Colorado State offense.
K.J has served as the back-up QB for the UW Football team, as they have risen to national prominence. Carta-Samuels was rated a 4-star prospect coming and #10 pro style QB in the nation coming out of high school by Rivals.com and was as top 25 QB on Scout.com, along with ESPN CFB. With not seeing much action as a Husky in his four years as a back-up, K.J walks into an offense that is re-building and will rely on a young and unproven receiving core to assist him in producing yards for the rams offense. Luckily, he has one of the best sophomore tight ends in the nation in Cameron Butler, who played in all 13 games as a freshmen. You can check both of these key Colorado State offensive players below!
