Set your calendars for a big show.
On Aug. 31, Bishop Gorman of Las Vegas will visit Honolulu to play two-time defending state champion Saint Louis at Aloha Stadium, according to Crusaders coach Cal Lee.
Lee worked out the details of the contest with Chris Brown, the former All-WAC performer for the University of Hawaii who is now an assistant with the Gaels.
Under coach Kenny Sanchez, Bishop Gorman won national high school championships in 2015 and 2016. The Gaels also won a national title under Tony Sanchez in 2014.
Mater Dei snapped Bishop Gorman’s 55-game winning streak on the way to a national title in 2017. The Gaels finished 13-2 and won the Nevada 4A state championship.
Saint Louis finished 10-0 last year and won the Hawaii Open Division state final, 31-28 over Kahuku. The Crusaders have won their last 15 games overall.
Saint Louis last played Bishop Gorman in 2012, losing 52-40 at Aloha Stadium. Running back Adam Noga rushed for 201 yards and two touchdowns but the Crusaders couldn’t contain Gaels quarterback Anu Solomon, who threw for 206 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for another score.
Bishop Gorman beat Kahuku, 35-7, in Las Vegas in 2016.
Saint Louis is 16-5-1 against mainland schools since 1966.
