It’s a mantra shared by all coaches still competing as the OIA enters its semifinals. Thinking like that is a big reason why they have made it this far. But they may be wise to look at the big picture and realize that all they have to do is win one game in two chances […]

Campbell has less than a week to try to ensure history does not repeat itself. The Sabers, fresh off a win over Leilehua in the OIA quarterfinals, put together a nice enough game that it should be able to soak it in for a while. But Campbell won’t have that luxury with No. 2 Mililani […]

Was it really Kamehameha’s fault? The Warriors joined the list of teams to get throttled by No. 1 Punahou last week, and were punished for it by the voters. Kamehameha dropped two spots behind Kahuku and Farrington in the Star-Advertiser’s latest football poll. Their opponent this week, Saint Louis, stayed firm at No. 3 behind […]

Kahuku takes a tumble

Kahuku football coach Lee Leslie had to know that his first season at the school wouldn’t come without a little bit of adversity. No football team ever goes through an entire campaign without at least one quiet ride home wondering where everything went wrong. Leslie took his first loss in Hawaii on Friday when his […]

To many poll voters, you have to beat the best to be the best. With so few meaningful games so far in the fall season, defending state champions in football and volleyball have kept their holds on the top spot in the Star-Advertiser’s polls. Punahou remains No. 1 in football while Kamehameha keeps the top […]

It’s probably a good thing Kaiser’s Cameron Higgins didn’t make a big deal out of his first win as a head coach. It has been taken away from him. Kaiser forfeited its season-opening win when an underclassman who was later found to be on academic probation entered the Cougars’ 52-7 blowout of Aiea with about […]

Sometimes, an apple does fall far from the tree. And then it just keeps rolling. Kaiser coach Cameron Higgins grew up in Delbert Tengan’s system with Saint Louis in 2004 and 2005, a balanced attack that kept opponents guessing. But now that the quarterback has grown into a coach, there isn’t much of a mystery […]
