Bishop Gorman is not coming to Aloha Stadium for an Aug. 31 game against Saint Louis, Gaels coach Kenny Sanchez told Hawaii Prep World on Monday. “That doesn’t sit well with me,” Crusaders coach Cal Lee said Monday. “But I can’t blame the head coach.

Without athletics, the numbers are eye-popping: a 3.9 grade-point average for the fall semester, including a 4.2 in the latest quarter. Combine that with his success as the nation’s No. 2-rated defense tackle, and the doors of opportunity keep opening. The 6-foot-3, 270-pound phenom has 32 scholarship […]

More recently, it has been the likes of Marcus Mariota, Tua Tagovailoa and Chevan Cordeiro who have lit the stage up, […]
