Can Mililani keep this offensive pace all year?

By Paul Honda on August 17, 2014

You’d have to play Madden or NCAA 14, load up your lineup with All-Pros (or All-Americans) and go no-huddle (sometimes hurry up) all game long to rack up crazy numbers like this. Yes, the scoreboard at John Kauinana Stadium binged and banged like a pinball machine on Saturday night. For both Mililani and Saint Louis.

Rod York knew it was a risk. But one he deemed worth taking. While breaking in new candidates for Mililani’s starting quarterback job this summer, York unleashed the Trojans senior-heavy defense in practice. “In the beginning (the quarterbacks) were live,” York said. “Some coaches were like, ‘what are you doing?’ But we needed all the experience we can get. “So I gambled, and said go ahead and tackle him because he needed the experience. The fastest way you’re going to […]

By Jason Kaneshiro on November 15, 2013

Mililani’s McKenzie Milton was determined to end his night with one more handoff. But the Trojans’ offensive line would have none of it. After being awarded game MVP honors after the Trojans’ 41-7 win over Campbell Friday night, Mililani’s sophomore quarterback tried his best to have his linemen carry the hardware out of Aloha Stadium as a show of appreciation. Instead they let the sophomore keep it. Apparently, his efforts in leading a 348-yard performance that helped send Mililani to […]
