Coach Chang and Company put the finishing touches on the 2023 signing class with a focus on defense, signing two defensive backs in Deylion Freeman and DaMarco Moorer, Mililani product Ezekiel Rodrigues and athlete Domata Peko Jr.

The worker mentality isn’t just a saying, with Coach Chang potentially forgoing a spring game in order to focus on team development, but Coach Chang still urges fans to come together. train to watch the work of the Bows.
