Coen grew up working on his family's farm in Pearl City -- some of his duties included hauling around slop buckets to feed the pigs, with his days usually starting around 4 a.m. so he could get in a workout and time in the weight room.
An outstanding student with a 3.8 GPA, he played linebacker his junior campaign before moving to free safety this past season. He'll come to WSU as a safety.
Coen was named the Defensive Player of the Year in the OIA White division in 2010, and picked up second team all-state honors.
Defensively, he logged 71 tackles this past season. As a running back, he gained 538 hashes on 61 attempts (8.8 yards per carry) with nine TDs.
Also, Chukwuemeka Iroegbu, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound shooting guard out of Franklin High in Sacramento, is walking on the WSU basketball team according to the Sacramento Bee.
