By Jerry Campany on August 9, 2019

The 50th season of Nanakuli football got off to a rousing start last week, beating Molokai 37-0. This week, they visit an old friend who has been there from the start. The Golden Hawks will visit Waialua for the 12th time on Saturday, hooking up with one of their oldest rivals. It will be the first time the teams have clashed since 2015, the longest gap between games since the mid-2000s. Nanakuli has already matched its win total from last […]


Kalaheo prospect Jordan Neufeldt primed for big year

By Brian McInnis on August 3, 2019

There weren’t a whole heck of a lot of bright spots for numbers-challenged Kalaheo in its season-opening 7-0 loss to visiting Kauai High at Kailuas Alex Kane Stadium on Friday night. Really, THE bright spot was two-way senior standout Jordan Neufeldt. Neufeldt, a 6-foot-3 linebacker/tight end, made plays both ways for the Mustangs, who sought — unsuccessfully — to snap a run of losses in openers going back to 2012. Coach Darrell Poole glowed about Neufeldt before and after the game. […]

GLORY DAYS: Coach Darrell Poole and the 2019 Kalaheo Mustangs

By Nick Abramo on July 27, 2019

24th IN A SERIES This summer, head coaches from all 28 Oahu high school varsity football teams are being asked to recount their football playing days. One coach interviewed for this multi-part series pointed out what he thinks may be the value of this endeavor: “A lot of times, you only hear about coaches when they’re getting released or are having a special season. It’s super hard to have a special season, so this should shed more light on them […]

CLOSING THE BOOK: Kalaheo Mustangs

By Jerry Campany on October 16, 2018

The Kalaheo Mustangs turned in their pads early, but in many ways 2018 marked another season of improvement. The Mustangs earned three wins for the first time since Darrell Poole‘s inaugural season in 2012 and have upped their win total for three years in a row, the first time that has happened since 2006-2008 under Chris Mellor, capped by Kalaheo’s last really good team that started 6-0 and finished 7-3 following back-to-back losses to Campbell. Poole’s 2018 bunch scored only […]

Kalaheo’s Poole hopeful for history-making 2019

By Christian Shimabuku on October 14, 2018

Kalaheo still felt that it had plenty to play for despite being eliminated from OIA playoff contention prior to Saturday night’s matchup with Kalani. Despite ending up just a game behind Kaiser for the fourth and final playoff bid in Division II, the Mustangs sent their 10 seniors out winners with a 22-7 victory over Kalani at Kailua’s Alex Kane Stadium. Two close key losses for Kalaheo (3-7 overall) would have swung its postseason fate. A 28-12 loss to the […]
