By Paul Honda on October 2, 2018

The fact is simple enough. Mika Makekau is the new record holder for the longest field goal by a girl in state history. Her 44-yard FG was one of three successful kicks in a 30-19 win over Damien two weeks ago. The win is key to ‘Iolani’s post-season qualifying chances, and she might get a shot at the national girls record of 48 yards before her prep career is done. Makekau, younger sister of current Navy starting wide receiver Keoni-Kordell […]

By Paul Honda on September 29, 2018

The top-ranked Saint Louis Crusaders are nearly impeccable. Offense. Defense. Special teams. Offseason reps. Video. It was more of the same quest for perfection in a first-time meeting with Campbell on Friday night. Saint Louis left with a 55-7 runaway, a game that was in running-clock, mercy-rule mode for the entire second half. “We focused on taking their run game. In film study, they did the same run blocking, downfield blocking, as Waianae,” said linebacker Lawai Brown, who had the […]

The Mililani Trojans are unbeaten in OIA Open Division play, and Dillon Gabriel would be perfectly fine if he hadn’t broken a record along the way. Gabriel is the new all-time career passing yards leader after a 362-yard, five-TD performance against Waianae. His game-day routine is basic and rich with family time. On a warm Saturday morning, the routine of game day begins. Gabriel wakes up around 7 a.m. He goes to church before breakfast. Mom (Dori) makes a spinach […]
