Q&A: Kaimuki’s ‘Beast Mode’ bruiser, Naomas Asuega-Fualaau

By Paul Honda on September 3, 2019

Given the choice between diverting away from collisions or initiating contact, football player/wrestler/boxer/judoka Naomas Asuega-Fualaau prefers to treat defenders like bowling pins.

The Bulldogs are coming off a 61-7 win at Waialua and are now 2-0 in OIA Division II play (3-1 overall). In four games, he has rushed for 546 yards and four TDs on 60 carries. Quite a shift from his […]

Kaimuki’s 1-2 punch of Jayden Maiava, Naomas Asuega-Fualaau makes the Bulldogs a legit contender
