By Christian Shimabuku on October 20, 2018

Many tributes were paid to the late Tommy Heffernan Sr., who passed away on Tuesday, at Kahuku on Friday night. A shrine with pictures of Heffernan was placed outside of the Red Raiders’ locker room along with a chair that had his clothing on it, including a Vietnam War Veteran hat. Junior varsity and varsity players gathered and prayed there before and after their games. A moment of silence was also held before the varsity game. It was all a […]

By Christian Shimabuku on October 19, 2018

No. 5 Kahuku 33, Kapolei 13, Final ———- 10:09: Kapolei turns it over on downs one last time, Kahuku takes one final knee, and 33-13 is your final.

Kahuku working to get its swag back

By Billy Hull on October 13, 2018

Following its first back-to-back losses in the regular season since 1996, Kahuku held a players-only meeting at the start of the week. “They know that they needed to right the ship,” Kahuku coach Sterling Carvalho said. An 80-yard touchdown pass from Farrington quarterback Chris Afe to super-sophomore Raymond Millare on the third play from scrimmage at Skippa Diaz Stadium on Friday night suggested that might not be the case for the three-time defending OIA champions. It turned out to be […]

Kahuku follows blueprint, gets heartbroken

By Paul Honda on October 7, 2018

A stunning 28-27 win by No. 6 Campbell over No. 4 Kahuku defied all logic. After all, Kahuku owned time of possession, controlled the line of scrimmage, and operated its game plan to near perfection. Big Red ran the ball 52 times for 213 yards, often out of their patented elephant formation with Wes Alo-Maiava (77 rushing yards before injury) and Zealand Matagi (102 yards) as wildcat QBs. In all, Kahuku had 67 plays from scrimmage. Campbell had 38 snaps […]
