Nick Rolovich was a prolific passer at the University of Hawaii in his senior season.

His coaching career at UH followed, and though he has since moved on to Nevada as an offensive coordinator, he continues to press hard in the islands. On Tuesday, the Wolfpack became the 11th FBS program to offer Kapolei offensive lineman Toleafoa Sean Auwae a football scholarship.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pound senior made the announcement on his Twitter page. Pacific Islands Athletic Alliance also shared the news via its Facebook page.
