Not Jazz but Cool & Tropical for sure......

One of the most storied athletes to come out of Hawaii is Timmy Chang. Breaking all sorts of NCAA records you would've thought that he'd at least have a shot with the NFL. For whatever the reason it just didn't happen, but, here's Timmy in Europe playing with the NFLE. Here's a photo of Timmy with his all too famous number fourteen on his jersey and a small write-up. Keep up the great work Timmy!!!! Timmy in the NFL??? Now that would be real cool!!!!!

Tim Chang passes for 141 yards in NFL Europe win
Posted By:

Former University of Hawai'i quarterback Timmy Chang passed for 141 yards and two quick-strike touchdowns in the Rhein Fire's 27-24 victory over the Berlin Thunder in an NFL Europe game last weekend.

Chang subbed in for starter Drew Henson (Dallas Cowboys) on the Fire's first possession in the 2nd quarter. Chang's first pass attempt came on 2nd and 2 on their own 28 yard line, and went for a 52-yard gain. After a holding penalty on a rushing play was called, resulting in 1st and 20 on the 30-yd line, Chang lined up in his familiar shotgun and threw a 30-yd TD pass to Chris Samp (Carolina Panthers), putting the Rhein up 7-0. The 80-yd drive took only 3 plays and 1:47 off the clock.

In their 2nd possession of the 2nd quarter, Chang went 1-3, ending the possession with an interception. Berlin did not score on their ensuing possession.

On the Rhein's next possession, Chang led the team on a quick score, starting with a 15-yard completion to the Berlin 44, then on the next play he completed a 44-yard TD pass down the right sideline to Kendrick Starling (Houston Texans). The two-play 59-yard drive took only 47 seconds, and put the Rhein up 14-0.

Chang was replaced during the next possession after recovering his own fumble, and did not return to the game.

Chang, playing just the 2nd quarter, completed 4 of 6 passes for 141 yards, 2 TD's and one interception, with a game passing rating of 109.7.

Chang, the NCAA career passing yardage record-holder, is a member of the Philadelphia Eagles who has been assigned to the NFL Europe.

Rhein is 5-2, Berlin 2-4-1. Amsterdam leads the league at 6-1.
