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

By Christian Shimabuku on August 17, 2019

With roster numbers perpetually hovering in the high teens to low 30’s during David Tautofi’s tenure at Kaimuki, the Bulldogs have relied on a quality over quantity approach. That philosophy has churned out Sama Paama, who starred for the Bulldogs as a two-way lineman before signing with Washington, where he is a freshman this fall. This year, the quality seems to reside in the backfield, where quarterback Jayden Maiava and running back Naomas Asuega-Fualaau combine to form one of the […]

By Paul Honda on August 9, 2019

Kaimuki 34, Pac-Five 12, FINAL Third and goal, Maiava fires a bullet to Kaulana Kaluna for a 4-yard TD. Unsportsmanlike conduct whistle on Kaluna for his celebration after the score. It wasn’t a big celebration, but the yellow flag came flying in anyway. KAIMUKI 34, PAC-FIVE 12, 10:50, Q4.

Sophomore QB Jayden Maiava returns home to Kaimuki with SEC offers in hand

By Christian Shimabuku on July 27, 2019

Kaimuki coach David Tautofi wanted to challenge his squad during fall camp. The Bulldogs didn’t have to travel very far to find the toughest challenge in the state, going just up the road to face nationally-ranked Saint Louis on Saturday morning for a controlled scrimmage. The matchup was also a chance for Jayden Maiava, the Bulldogs’ highly-touted 6-foot-4 rookie quarterback, to see live action against the feared Crusaders defense. Maiava played his freshman season for Sierra Vista (Nev.), where he […]
