York: Scoreboard doesn’t define Mililani

By Nick Abramo on November 25, 2018

It was a not-so-good showing on the scoreboard for coach Rod York‘s Mililani Trojans on Saturday night in the Open Division final of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA Football State Championships. But they’ll be able to look back at the 38-17 loss to the top-ranked Saint Louis Crusaders and know they didn’t go down with a whimper. They were in striking distance, 14-3, at halftime. In the third quarter, things got worse in a hurry as Saint Louis (11-0) went up […]

Save, Tuiolemotu returned leaner, faster for Trojans

By Paul Honda on November 21, 2018

The hunger of Mililani senior Mykah Tuiolemotu is real. Since dropping to a lean, mean 215 pounds, he has leveled off at 225 during the season. His partner in the trenches, Ezra Save, dropped 50 pounds. The work has paid off. Both are defensive tackles who have more energy and endurance during the Trojans’ high-possession, uptempo games. “Last season, the one reason I tried to slim down was I couldn’t catch the stinking quarterback (Chevan Cordeiro of Saint Louis, now […]

Q&A: Mililani DT Mykah Tuiolemotu

By Paul Honda on November 20, 2018

Simple isn’t always easy. After all, to get where Mykah Tuiolemotu is, it takes help, and the willingness to ask for it. 3.7 grade-point average?

He works and works to get stronger, and this year, he got lean, dropping 30 pounds to have added quickness and endurance. Tuiolemotu is a stellar defensive tackle, teaming with Ezra Save up front to set the […]
