Hawaii football players and members of the cheerleading team took some time this weekend to make their way around the island to surprise longtime fans and season-ticket holders with in-home visits.
The two players joining the fun were quarterback Dru Brown and tight end Dakota Torres, along with Rainbow Warriors head coach Nick Rolovich.
According to Hawaii Warrior World, the group was visiting fans to show appreciation for the support they receive week in and week out during the season. The trip was coordinated by associate athletic director Joel Masunaga.
Here is what fans who were visited received and got to witness:
The mini mahalo tour was associate athletic director Joel Masunaga’s brainchild, and it was a way for the Warriors to show support and interact with their fans. Rolovich presented the honorees with a football, T-shirt and replica season tickets. The cheerleaders performed to UH fight song and Hawaii Five-0.
The fans who received visits were Paul Nelson, who attended every game for more than a decade; Russell Nakamura, who has attended games since 1980; and Al Kimura, who has been following Hawaii sports for nearly 60 years.

What an awesome gesture by the Rainbow Warriors. Kudos to the University of Hawaii and everyone involved for showing the fans appreciation for their dedication.
