UH commits show championship chops

Saint Louis receiver Jonah Panoke made the Open Division state championship game-winning 53-yard touchdown catch by pulling the ball away from Kahuku defensive back Alex Fonoimoana-Vaomu on Nov. 18. Steven Erler / Special to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

Fans of the Hawaii football team may very well have seen a glimpse of the future late Saturday night at Aloha Stadium.

Saint Louis’ 31-28 victory over Kahuku in the HHSAA Division I Open championship game featured three UH commits. Quarterback Chevan Cordeiro, receiver Jonah Panoke and defensive back Kai Kaneshiro are all Crusaders who have verbally pledged to join the Rainbow Warriors for the 2018 season.

Mitchell Quinn, another senior, could soon be joining them as well. He picked up an offer from UH after his performance five touchdowns and 307 yards in the semifinals against Mililani.

Saturday night’s game was the second year in a row that the Crusaders topped the Red Raiders for the state crown, but Cordeiro, Panoke and Quinn were asked to do far more than in last season’s matchup. Panoke had three receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown in Saint Louis’ 30-14 victory, while Quinn and Cordeiro didn’t register any stats.

Fast forward to 2017, and the trio was the hallmark of the team’s high-powered offense. Cordeiro was eager to get his first start against the Red Raiders, and he admits that it backfired in the beginning when he threw an interception to Alex Fonoimoana-Vaomu in the game’s first possession.

“The fans brought it out again. Kahuku is amazing. Their defense is good, their offense is good, they brought a good game and I wanna thank them,” he said afterwards. “I wasn’t nervous, I was actually pretty hyped. Starting off with that first pick, I just wanted to learn from it. I want to thank my defense. They got my back when I was throwing interceptions.”

Cordeiro finished 30-for-44 with three touchdowns and two interceptions, and his second pick came in the end zone with 2:35 to go when the Crusaders were down 28-24. When he got the ball back with 46 seconds remaining on their own 47, he was poised and ready.

“We practice for that one-minute drill every time,” Cordeiro said. “The whole team was excited, we were all pumped. Everyone believed that we were still gonna win.”

With the title on the line, Cordeiro went deep to Panoke, a receiver he’s been working with since the two were elementary schoolers. Panoke used every bit of his 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame to come away with a 53-yard game winning touchdown.

“I’ve been with Chevan since the second grade and we’ve had a connection all the way up to senior year. It feels amazing to end it with a big win,” he said. “I mean, it’s amazing to just make big plays in front of this crowd. It’s exciting. It’s amazing to end my senior year with another ring.”

“I’m so happy for Jonah because Jonah works hard,” Saint Louis coach Cal Lee added. “And to be honest, he made a hell of a play because he had good coverage and he kind of took the ball away. Wow, I can’t wait to look at film.”

Panoke finished with eight receptions for 152 yards in the contest. When asked if the performance on his future home field was a sign of things to come, he smiled.

“Right now (the commitment) is solid,” he said. “I love the coaches, coach Stutz (Craig Stutzmann) and coach Rolo (Nick Rolovich), and all the coaches that sent me mail. It just inspires me to go with them and they treat me like family.”

The rest of Cordeiro’s touchdown passes went to Quinn, who had five receptions for 131 yards and two scores, including a 95-yard trip to the end zone in the second quarter.

Quinn’s rapid rise from being a seldom-used junior to finishing his senior year as the state’s leader in receiving yards and touchdowns was put into perspective afterwards.

“Just being a senior and knowing that I contributed, it feels great,” he said. “Seeing my boys last year, it was a great feeling still but being a part of it and having that feeling inside that I contributed, it feels awesome.”

The possibility of the trio all suiting up for the same college team appealed to Lee.

“If Rolo wants to throw the ball more, he’s got good pretty good throwers and receivers,” Lee said. “I mean, really good receivers.”

    @anywaaays I feel kinda left out b/c you aren’t addressing me! Ohh pick me pick me!

    1. How come u never respond to my suggestion of grabbing the whole kabuki community and do one media campaign to bring awareness of all this?

    2.You still haven’t addressed how I asked you how all this comes into play to bring OIA down, when I pointed out the fact that even tho u guys not winning the titles, OIA students still getting offers of scholarships from mainland schools?

    3. You still have yet to address if any of the students who go to ILH schools pay full/half tuition or they themselves get scholarships from those private schools, AND if they bring in other would be OIA public school students to ILH private schools who pay full tuition?

    4. You have yet to address the fact that ILH schools don’t get corporate sponsors or win any $ for winning any titles for any sports as colleges do.

    5. Can you actually show proof that any of the OIA OR ILH students had scholarships from colleges and when they lost the title game, had their scholarships taken back?

    6. Can u actually prove that in 10-15 years that this will actually REALLY matter?

    ** Wen I went to st. louis we were still winning titles, and I thought it was cool and all, and now I look back, it honestly doesn’t really mean THAAAT much, if anyone is still stuck in the past and lives there, thats a huge problem. Who we are as graduates isn’t rooted in the fact we won or lost titles, seriously. Some of those titles opened doors for fellow classmates to play college and professionally but I’m gonna be honest, if today, at whatever age they are at now, they have no depth of character and life experiences and just continue to try and live in the past, that was all for nothing. How are they being built up as young men & women through the sports, win or loose, how are they maturing as a productive young person contributing to society and how are you as an adult carrying on like you are, ever being an example for them? Guess what? Life isn’t fair at times and it sucks, but what honestly counts is how u respond to it. And lets just say you expose this corruption as u say, and your beloved OIA schools win titles, now what? how is anything different? Did u change the course of their future?

    Comment person #48.
    Nowhere did I say the game was rigged.

    There was no clock malfunction. I said that the clock was stopped by the ref in question ,on a simple dive play.The clock should have continued and another 7 seconds ticked off prior to the 25 second clock.

    I did not mention any uncalled holding by St.Louis. The trenches looked like decent calls.

    It was a great championship game.


  3. Red Raider Alumni November 24, 2017 7:15 pm

    It’s kids receiving scholarship offers…Congradulations boys…Enjoy the great journey of playing college football…Best of luck.. Talk about the game on another article..Please ….RRFL


  4. Too Meke 2 November 24, 2017 8:35 pm

    @T103, please don’t tell anywaaays/808 that state titles don’t matter. Even though he is from Waialua and never won a title, if you tell him that state titles don’t matter, he might kill himself.

    We definitely don’t want that. Who would we laugh at (anywaaays)?

    And who would write aggressive messages to me behind their computer (808)?

    We definitely do not want that.


  5. T103 November 24, 2017 8:46 pm

    @Red Raider Alumni There is no way that student athletes are NOT getting looked at as prospective future college players by the fact that they are not winning titles. Scouts don’t look at one game at the end of the season. If the student athletes have popped up on their radar, it’s b/c of the entire season(s). And not just a title game. Like I said before, no school has taken back an offer due to not winning a title game. They may have it taken back if they get in trouble with the law or majorly injured where they won’t be playing anymore.

    @Too Meke 2. I would rather give a reality check to anywaaaay/808 sooner then later. I mean seriously, really, it doesn’t matter 15 years later. It’s like the 40 year old guy who shows up to the class reunion wearing their leathermens jacket you hear all night saying “remember that time back in high school when” but never grew up!


  6. anywaaaays!! November 24, 2017 9:00 pm

    T103:
    “1. How come u never respond to my suggestion of grabbing the whole kabuki community and do one media campaign to bring awareness of all this?”

    We are working on this. We’ve spoken about this for YEARS but we keep being ignored because of the ILH agenda.

    “2.You still haven’t addressed how I asked you how all this comes into play to bring OIA down, when I pointed out the fact that even tho u guys not winning the titles, OIA students still getting offers of scholarships from mainland schools?”

    Kahuku IS winning state titles. Look at how many we won since football went to a state tournament format. The destruction of the competitive balance of hawaii football doesn’t mean that no OIA students will get scholarship offers from mainland universities. There aren’t enough private schools on this island to recruit EVERY good player from the OIA.

    But there are enough to recruit enough from different districts that each team is crippled enough to be non-competitive… except Kahuku

    “3. You still have yet to address if any of the students who go to ILH schools pay full/half tuition or they themselves get scholarships from those private schools, AND if they bring in other would be OIA public school students to ILH private schools who pay full tuition?”

    I have no idea what you’re talking about or why this is relevant. It’s not even good english.

    “4. You have yet to address the fact that ILH schools don’t get corporate sponsors or win any $ for winning any titles for any sports as colleges do.”

    Prestige counts for a lot. A winning football program draws students into ILH schools which means tuition dollars. without football, private schools are nothing.

    “5. Can you actually show proof that any of the OIA OR ILH students had scholarships from colleges and when they lost the title game, had their scholarships taken back?”

    When did I say that high school students would lose university athletic scholarships if they lost a state title game? You’re not making any sense.

    “6. Can u actually prove that in 10-15 years that this will actually REALLY matter?”

    It matters to communities. It matters to parents. It matters to alumni. It may not matter to you, but it’s probably because you are an ILH mercenary who has no idea what family and community is like. come to La’ie and we can show you. We’ll even get you a kahuku shirt.

    RRFL!


  7. T103 November 24, 2017 9:19 pm

    Ahhh there he is… Thanks for responding. Your whole idea thoughts that it’s an ILH conspiracy is so crazy. the ‘ILH Agenda’ isn’t keeping u guys from calling a press conference with the entire NS community to bring attention of this said travesty that is happening. Get them to wave signs and garens the news going show up and then u can tell it “how it is” on the news.

    – So basically you’re saying that ILH schools are stealing the good kids from diff. districts SO THAT they can make every school EXCEPT kahuku NOT competitive SO THAT they can win titles BECAUSE it’s all about prestige? AND when they win the titles instead of OIA schools they can get more kids from those districts to go who then pay full tuition and brings in money? Umm I kinda doubt that those kids actually pay full tuition, I think a lot of them actually get scholarships to go to those private school. How many of the football players at punahou & st louis actually pay full tuition? Ummm my guess is not a whole lot. (this would address your response for #3)

    thanks for the invite to be shown what community and family IS REALLY LIKE, but nah, I’m good, it really doesn’t matter to me. I got different priorities, so much more to life and so much more out there then winning titles, seriously. Like I mentioned earlier, reality check, in the real world, 20 years down the line, its not gonna get you further along in life if you win or loose a title game. Move forward, get on with your life. Don’t be that 40 year old guy at the reunion all night long saying “remember when we won the state title 23 years ago!?


  8. T103 November 24, 2017 9:29 pm

    P.S. you might want to clarify that without football punahou, st. louis and kamehameha is nothing. let me help you out. and far as I can tell, all the other private schools are doing just fine, giving good education to their students. I.E. mid pac, iolani, Uh Lab etc etc. Not good to generalize. It’s not nice to include ALL ILH SCHOOLS as being “nothing without football”. U gotta be more specific with your hatred bro…. it makes more sense.


  9. anywaaaays!! November 24, 2017 10:07 pm

    “So basically you’re saying that ILH schools are stealing the good kids from diff. districts SO THAT they can make every school EXCEPT kahuku NOT competitive”

    no. They still steal from our communities and backyards too like everywhere else. La’ie just produces so many star athletes that it doesn’t matter, unlike other districts like where Mckinley is located in.

    ” SO THAT they can win titles BECAUSE it’s all about prestige? AND when they win the titles instead of OIA schools they can get more kids from those districts to go who then pay full tuition and brings in money? Umm I kinda doubt that those kids actually pay full tuition, I think a lot of them actually get scholarships to go to those private school. How many of the football players at punahou & st louis actually pay full tuition?”

    pay attention: When football teams win, they attract all kinds of students, not just football players, INCLUDING students who can pay full tuition. Similar to how colleges with winning programs see enrollment increases just because of name brand recognition and prestige. It’s not that hard.

    The only reason why private schools can give “good educations” is because of the prestige of their football programs. Their overrated educational programs are secondary because they are just football factory schools.

    Read this article: https://sports.vice.com/en_us/article/j5jz54/jojuan-collins-carries-the-football-hopes-of-las-public-schools-16-project

    is this the future you want for Hawaii? Rigged refs. Rampant recruiting. Haves or the have nots. We need an investigation into the rigged state tournament this year. Maybe gina mangieri can help if Governor Ige doesn’t want to investigate

    RRFL!


  10. T103 November 24, 2017 10:19 pm

    You are so crazy. are u saying that iolani and damien, and st francis and mid pac and UH lab and la pietra and sacred hearts (now I’m just getting crazy) are producing crazy good football players?! MEEAAAN. So once again, be specific in your disdain for private schools b/c SURELY mid pac and UH Lab and sacred hearts and saint andrews priory are not football producing ILH schools. Side note I REALLY wish you could hear me say verbally out loud “RRFL”. RED RAIDERS FOR LIFE.


  11. anywaaaays!! November 24, 2017 10:34 pm

    The big schools carry the prestige that trickles down to the smaller ILH schools but all benefit. It’s not that hard of a concept. In the article i posted this is said:

    “”Simply because it was a private school, I just thought that he had a better shot at education,” Joe Jenkins, Jojuan’s grandfather, says. “I can only say that Mater Dei disappoints me. The reason they disappoint me was I had a child who is very good in football and it ended up Mater Dei giving me the impression that he was better at football than he was learning. I think it should have been the other way around… All they want is football out of you. They don’t really want to work with you. They just want football.””

    that’s the difference between a “brotherhood” and playing in the community you grew up in. But you and the paid off refs wouldn’t know. T103 = Education First. RRFL!


  12. Too Meke 2 November 24, 2017 10:51 pm

    @ anywaaays, How can you say we won titles when you are from Waialua? When did Waialua win a state title?

    Hi 808!


  13. Too Meke 2 November 24, 2017 10:55 pm

    anywaaays is the biggest fraud on here. Last time I checked, the only person who was exposed by the Star Advertiser staff is anywaaays/toomeke/88/808.

    Your life is pretty sad all the way in Waialua.

    BTW, I am from Boston so the Patriots have won so many NFL Titles. (See I can do it too! I can make up where I am from)

  15. Recruit dis November 24, 2017 10:57 pm

    Coach c- the reason why they stopped the clock is because the play clock stopped but it was suppose to be running so they rest both clocks and started it again and then kahuku had a false start. Now does that answer your question?


  16. Too Meke 2 November 24, 2017 11:00 pm

    @ Recruit Dis, why does Coach C call himself a coach. I am calling BS. What the hell does he even coach?

    Hopscotch? Checkers? Chess? Teather-Ball? Gymnastics? Rhythmic Dancing? What is he a coach of? I guarantee it isn’t football.


  17. Dafun November 25, 2017 2:33 am

    Did anyone find out if awrite/88/toomeke/copying everyone’s username on here including mine is really that one Kahuku guy that was mentioned earlier? Or is he the 50 year old Waialua guy?


  18. T103 November 25, 2017 5:32 am

    Haha I woke up this morning and giggled to myself like a little school girl wen once again, verbally out loud is said the phrase “RRFL” RED RAIDERS FOR LIFE” in a low tone but not really clearly articulating every word, I almost made myself sound like a dog barking, woof woof, fo woof. The only thing I kinda regret tbh guys is actually jumping on this comment thread and wasting the past day and a half, it’s a day and a half that I can never get back again, I’m sad about that…..

    My final thoughts to the 3 die hard kahuku posters on here, or just one disguised as 3 lol, it is what it is, u guys will be back next year, but I rest easy at nite bc the ILH agenda will keep u down from winning that title and then the trickle down affect to all my other private school institutions will benefit from it. If perhaps there is a glitch in the matrix and kahuku does win, I wanna come back on here and just see what happened, according to you, if you guys banded together as a community to secure the pride and prestige and over come the evil mean ILH agenda (this is where I’m using my sarcastic typing skills, can u sense it?) and be able to brag about it for future generations, like the team that won the kick ball game in 6th grade b/c I realize that u guys only have football or sports out there and u just cling on to it like your life depended upon it.

    I look forward to u and everyone else down there ‘uncovering’ the depth of corruption of the HHSAA which btw is run by an iolani grad and 2 kaimuki grads, which of course I can see where ur point is, probably the Iolani guy keeps paying the other 2 kaimuki grads year after year to keep our beloved ILH agenda rolling along but hidden. Then you will be promoted to lead prosecutor and take over keith kaneshiros job once this whole kealoha thing has been taken care of.

    And finally, whether one gets private school or public school education the truth is, it is what you are of it. We all know students from both types of schools who has flourished and been successful and others who have completely pissed their life away. And you are most correct anywaaays wen u say that it’s education first, whole heartedly I agree, more sad and waste of $ for anyone who had the opportunity to go to private school and also play sports that gave them chances of playing in the higher levels of college and professionally yet squandered it all away. Case in point, Dominick Riola, who went to st louis, that opportunity for him to play college AND professionally, from what I understand, successful in that sense, but also he is no dummy, from what I remember he was really smart in school, was in all the advanced AP classes. So just in case it didn’t work out for him to continue football later on in life, he had his brains to fall back on as well. My only hope is that any and every athlete from public or private school not put all their eggs in one basket.

    With that being said, thank you for reading, fa’afetai tele lava, manuia le aso. CHEEEE

    ***RRFL*** ***WOOF WOOF —– FO WOOF***


  19. Too44 November 25, 2017 6:11 am

    Kai Kaneshiro plays CB like a traffic cone. All of Kahuku’s big plays were on him. He can’t play DB unless he holds. He had a hard time covering a TE with average speed and the wideouts made him look like he was running in sand. He will be relegated to the scout team at UH along with most of the Mililani HS alums who are basically sideline cheerleaders with mohawk fades. God forbid Kaneshiro actually gets in the game. I hope that it was worth being held back again and that he has an academic plan….for his sake.


  20. anywaaaays!! November 25, 2017 8:49 am

    Kahuku haters can hate all they want. And sole, if you samoan, how can you not support Kahuku? I feel pity for you. You turned your back on your own community and culture to be an ILH mercenary.

    But the truth will come out. The evidence was clear as day about the ILH Agenda rigging the state tournament and even the OIA tournament to bring Kahuku down. From the alumni refs to the biased media, the entire state hates Kahuku, but we still keep winning.

    Like I said earlier, if Governor Ige and the state AG doesn’t investigate this corruption, maybe Gina Mangieri will. RRFL!


  21. Eyeswideshut November 25, 2017 9:29 am

    The answer is Simple…Dont mix the Private schools with the Public schools…There’s more than enough public schools across the State to play amongst each other…The playoff system would be just fine…Its that simple….


  22. dafun November 25, 2017 1:45 pm

    If the anyways/awrite/88/toomeke wants to complain about anything, ask him/them why the hell there’s 3 public schools in the open state championship and 1 private school. That’s bs. Waianae would get smashed from punahou and kamehameha. They never even deserved to be in states. the top teams should be in states in the order of ranking and even though I grad from St. Louis, I will say that Punahou or Kamehameha should have been in states because they were that good. Waianae got smashed and by 3rd quarter it was 49-7 by St. Louis. Now on another note did anyone figure out who the culprit is that we’re gonna end up banning?


  23. Eyeswideshut November 25, 2017 2:21 pm

    The ILH is good, they have great athletes with incredible facilities..Top that off with good coaching…But also have the privilege of having kids who play out of district boundaries…This privilege is not afforded to the Public schools.Different set of rules…So,like I said before, Let the Public schools play with amongst themselves..And the Private schools do the same…Its simple..


  24. Recruit dis November 25, 2017 2:42 pm

    Eyeswideshut- public school does have recruiting it’s called GE or using your families address to go to the school. How do you think mililani has all the talent.


  25. Eyeswideshut November 25, 2017 3:37 pm

    That is True…


  26. anywaaaays!! November 25, 2017 4:01 pm

    No. The OIA is being generous even letting a single ILH team into the playoffs. They want to recruit so much that they break up communities? They wanna ruin the competitive balance of football in order to win more prestige? Then fine. Play in their own league. We don’t need them. They can start their own Mercenaries Interscholastic League and play each other five times a season. Good luck to them. They can call their championship the Recruiting Bowl.

    meanwhile, the OIA will continue to flourish as the strongest league in the state, top to bottom. OIA > ILH because homegrown players playing in front of their communities, making their families proud, and continuing strong traditions within their families will be greater than any game involving teams who are only playing for the scholarship money.

    RRFL!


  27. Eyeswideshut November 25, 2017 4:39 pm

    That is True too….Let them play on their own league….Simple…


  28. Coach C November 25, 2017 8:21 pm

    Lol,Comment#15 R.D….did you read what you wrote? The GAME clock was stopped at 1:30. No reason to do that on a running play. Officially at 1:23 the 25 seconds play clock should have started. Instead the officials started the play clock at 1:30, but the game clock did not move. After 2 confusing restarts, the flinch by 77. What started the whole thing was the white hair ref pointing at Wes Maiava”s legs after his run. That was weird.


  29. anywaaaays!! November 26, 2017 9:23 am

    I completely agree, coach. The game was rigged. RRFL!

    anywaaays!! just mad because he never got recruited and is stuck being the village idiot of his community. He’s mad because he never made it out and wants to keep other kids from succeeding. The only thing destroying communities are dummies like you anywaaaays!! who complain and cry. Take the loss and suck it up cupcake. Come back and lose again next year because the Crusaders will be stacked again. And for your information STL has always gotten majority of its players from Kalihi not the North Shore.

    RRFL


  31. Recruit this November 26, 2017 1:26 pm

    Coach c- that’s why the play clock should have been started also but it wasn’t . I don’t know why I even explaining myself. St. Louis went threw the top two teams in the oia so obviously the odds was against them and the tournament was set up for them too lose. Guess what they still won so move on already. Focus on kahuku recruiting for basketball. Let’s talk about that .


  32. Coach C November 26, 2017 2:49 pm

    Kahuku basketball coach or Coach A is the best in the State. If you move to Hawaii and can find humble abode in the Kahuku area then that’s your best bet. It’s a public school, free. Plus they play a fast pace aggressive bb which is what college recruiters look for. This year.let’s get rid of the ILH “shot clock”. A slow and stalling game deployed by less athletic teams.


  33. Too Meke 2 November 26, 2017 2:56 pm

    You are senile Coach C. First of all you are not a damn coach so stop calling yourself Coach C. You should name yourself Blogger C or Spectator C or Watcher C.

    Anyway Kahuku is the worst place. The academics suck. Families throw coaches under the bus (Coach Torres, Coach Leslie, Coach Tata, Coach Akina). Families should stay far away.

    The best place to live is in Waialua. Then you can be neighbors with 808 and his several identities.

    FACT: St. Louis won

    FACT: you’re 50 and I’m still in my 20’s

    FACT: billy hull and Paul Honda agree with me in being so close to getting you banned because you’re an idiot.

    FACT: you’re a crybaby

    FACT: you wish you could of been part of a winning team

    FACT: nobody knows how the hell you know any facts to begin with

    FACT: you live in your grandma’s house

    FACT: nobody wants you on here even kahuku fans

  36. Fueling the fire November 27, 2017 11:29 am

    Coach C- So you’re complaining about 7 seconds not running off the clock? and making like that was the reason for the tackles false start? HAHAHA 7 seconds wouldn’t have made a difference! how much time was left on the clock when Saint Louis got the ball back? Unless it was less than the 7 seconds you are complaining about then your complaint holds no weight. As for the false start…that was his SECOND false start of the game…both because the Saint Louis boy flinched him and made him false start. And to say that the tournament was rigged, I agree! The committee was banking on one of the top 2 OIA teams taking STL out…we all know how that turned out. Serious or not you clowns can cry all you want and try to blame everyone else but in the end, Saint Louis had the odds stacked against them and they came out on top! With no recruits on the roster either so keep that excuse to yourself cuz that’s a handful of trash anywaaaays.

    The game was not rigged.

    Is the OIA going to cry again this year and alter the state tournament format again??

    Put all the eggs in the OPEN and one in D2, left empty handed. such a disappointment, I know.
    At least last year Millilani beat a scrappy Iolani team.
    This year PUKA.
    And St. Lulu beat your best two teams.

    I think you may be right OIA cannot hang with the ILH.
