Andres brings poise to Mules’ ground and pound

By Paul Honda on September 30, 2017

The numbers don’t look drastically different, but Kona Andres is another kind of quarterback this season. With second place in the division — and a first-round bye — on the line, he was masterful in Leilehua’s 33-6 win over Farrington on Friday night at Hugh Yoshida Stadium. That gave the 10th-ranked Mules a 5-2 mark in division play (6-2 overall). A year ago, the Mules were young and struggling against the best of the OIA’s Division I teams. Andres often […]

By Nick Abramo on September 24, 2017

Right after James McGary ripped off two straight 25-yard runs in the third quarter Saturday night, it was time to look up Leilehua’s single-game record for rushing. At that point of the Mules’ eventual 38-14 victory over Kailua, McGary was already at 232 yards on the ground. The record: Adrian Murrell‘s 332 set in 1987. Could he get there? Or would he finish the night as Leilehua’s single-game leading rusher not named Murrell? Murrell — who went on to a […]

By Jason Kaneshiro on September 16, 2017

Moments after a homecoming win, Leilehua coach Mark Kurisu spotted quarterback Kona Andres sprawled on the turf in the Hugh Yoshida Stadium end zone. “All right Kona?” Kurisu playfully shouted toward the senior before resuming a postgame interview. “He’s tired. He wants to go sleep on the field.” After a hectic week on campus and a busy night in the pocket, Andres had earned a moment of downtime following the Mules’ 51-14 OIA Red win over Nanakuli. A member of […]
