Kahuku has had more mentions on the All-State first team than any other OIA school, but one name stands above all others this year. New coach Lee Leslie and his Raiders have dedicated the season to Chris and Maake Kemoeatu after the former needed a new kidney and his big brother was there for him. […]


All good teams routinely describe itself as a family. At Farrington, they have the roots to prove it. Defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko made the Star-Advertiser’s first team after last season, joining three older brothers in taking the honor and continuing a run of family excellence going back to the Nogas and the Cadientes. The run […]


For a school surrounded by the most football talent in the islands, Campbell’s best years seem to come in bunches. And the Sabers hope they are in the middle of one of those swings. Safety Solomon Matautia was first-team All-State last year and returns to try to repeat the feat. If he can do it, […]


Way back when Waianae ruled the OIA in the 1970s and 1980s, its success started with the last line of its defense. The Seariders, who appeared at No. 8 in the Star-Advertiser’s countdown, seem to always leave fans wondering why ‘good’ rarely turns to ‘great’ when the season winds down. An answer can probably be […]

Plenty of talent has moved through Wahiawa over the years, led by running back Adrian Murrell. The NFL veteran was first-team All-State three years in a row by the Honolulu Advertiser, the first to be so honored. Waianae’s Kennedy Tulimasealii, Kahuku’s Aofaga Wily, Castle’s Blaze Soares and Gerald Welch of Saint Louis are the only […]

When the OIA’s new divisions and schedule were announced over the summer, there was one glaring omission — No Mililani-Leilehua rivalry game unless the teams happen to meet in the playoffs. Problem solved, sort of. Coaches for both schools got together and decided to honor the rivalry and schedule a scrimmage Thursday, July 31 at […]


Kahuku was shut out of the first team on last year’s Star-Advertiser All-State football first team, the first time the school didn’t have someone mentioned on a newspaper’s first team since 1997. That leaves Mililani with the longest current OIA streak, getting a player on the first team every year since 2002. Saint Louis has […]
