Freshman defensive backs Khoury Bethley and Alaka‘i Mashima are expected to earn playing time in Saturday’s home opener against Navy.
Both players were used on special teams against Colorado State.
“Those are two young players who do a good job,” defensive coordinator Corey Batoon said.
Bethley, who is 5-10 and 200 pounds, is a 2018 graduate of Don Lugo High in Chino, Calif.
Mashima is a 2017 Punahou School graduate who joined the Warriors after succeeding at a walk-on tryout. Mashima is 5-11 and 175 pounds.
“They’re both really smart football guys,” Batoon said. “They work hard. They’re doing everything we’ve asked them to do. They deserve an opportunity.”
