Wayne Taulapapa has always been more about winning as a team than as an individual. But this season, for the first time in his career, the Buffanblu turned in their pads before turning the calendar to November so there is not much left other than individual awards. Taulapapa got a big one on Monday night, […]


Marcus Mariota made Hawaii one of the hotbeds for college quarterbacks, and Kaimi Fairbairn might have done the same for the kicking game. Fairbairn, a former Punahou kicker who is breaking records at UCLA, got his first taste of the big game in the 2011 title tilt. Now, it is Kekoa Sasaoka‘s turn. The Kahuku […]


Iolani’s Bailey Choy and Kainoa Obrey fell short of their goal of a state title, but they were reminded today that an ILH title was nothing to shrug off. Choy was named the ILH player of the year in division I and Obrey was selected coach of the year in voting by the league’s coaches. […]

Fans who are expecting to pick up both adult and youth/student tickets for the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA Football State Championships at First Hawaiian Bank will have to adjust their plans a bit. Only adult tickets are being sold at FHB. Student tickets are available at schools or the stadium. “It was too hard for them […]


Judging by the OIA football all stars released today, coaches consider Manaia Atuaia the weakest link on Kahuku’s historically good defense. The selections, which are voted on by the league’s coaches, rewarded the Red Raiders by putting 10 players on the 12-man first team defense. They are all there, from Bradlee Anae to defensive player […]


Save a little bit of FieldTurf for the second game, boys. Kahuku and Waianae will hook up for the second time this season tonight, but this one will mean a whole lot more with a spot in the state final at stake. The two most potent rushing attacks in the state make no secret about […]
