HUB senior all-star game on tap

by Paul Honda on November 30, 2010

The HUB Goodwill Senior Classic is still alive, according to Harold Tanaka.

Tanaka, the football coordinator for the Oahu Interscholastic Association, said the annual all-star game will be played on Friday at Kapolei High School. The site of past games, Aloha Stadium, was not considered due to cost-cutting measures.

Rental of Aloha Stadium is roughly $12,000.

The game features top seniors from the Interscholastic League of Honolulu and OIA. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

There will be no matchup between Hawaii and mainland all-stars, unlike the past two years. The game will not be televised.

Why will there be no mainland game this year? Is it because we've been beaten 2 years in a row?

i think it's pretty plain and simple. WE STAND NO CHANCE against the Mainland!!! LOL. no but seriously, i think it's a money issue…cost cutting and such, that's why the HUB East/West All Star game won't be played in the Aloha Stadium…

I feel the main reason there isn't a Mainland game this year is because WE STAND NO CHANCE against the Mainland. no but seriously, i believe it's because of the economy and the cost cutting. that is why the HUB East/West All Star game wont be played in the Aloha Stadium!!!

Hawaii stands a chance against the Mainland, they should give more time to both all-star teams to get familiar with their systems and new teammates, cause its more of a pick up game when they only give the players a week to prepare.
