Saint Louis had the ball, trailing 14-12, late in the first half, but back-to-back turnovers triggered a run by Punahou, which ran away with a 43-19 victory at Skippa Diaz Stadium. Efficiency was peak-level for quarterback John-Keawe Sagapolutele, who passed for 237 yards and three touchdowns on 17-for-22 marksmanship.

VIDEO: Kini McMillan shines, Mililani sacks Saint Louis 28-7

By Paul Honda on August 6, 2022

The final numbers tell a better story, but for one half, the extremes didn’t explain much. In the first 24 minutes, Mililani had a whopping 11 sacks, but Saint Louis seemed to have a modest level of momentum, scoring in the second quarter. The visiting Crusaders trailed 14-7 at intermission, a gift from the football gods, for sure. Mililani closed out strong with a 28-7 win on Friday night, looking sharp — as a team as hungry and active year-round […]

Kekahi Graham returns, but Saint Louis loses 3 key players

By Paul Honda on May 22, 2022

Here today, gone tomorrow. Just like that, the Saint Louis’ losses are the OIA’s gains. Freshman quarterback phenom Jaron Keawe Sagapolutele is transferring from Saint Louis to Campbell. One of his big-play targets, sophomore wide receiver Kache Kaio, is en route to Kahuku. Another stellar contributor, 6-foot-2, 358-pound offensive lineman Iapani “Poncho” Laloulu, has left Saint Louis and is returning to Farrington for his upcoming senior year. Laloulu cracked the rotation last year despite the presence and talent of 12 […]

Campbell sophomore Kela Moore on first offer: SDSU

By Paul Honda on February 1, 2022

There are sophomores diving into the learning curve, taking their lumps and just trying to survive through the varsity football struggle. Kela Moore is not one of those sophs. The 6-foot, 180-pound sophomore is already one of the top defensive backs in the state. San Diego State got a jump on prospective competitors by offering the Campbell defender a scholarship last week. “I kind of didn’t really expect it either. But after school, coach DJ (Darren Johnson) would have me […]

Saint Louis playmaker Trech Kekahuna weighs offers from Nevada, UH, Boise State

By Paul Honda on January 28, 2022

The call him a beast in the weight room. Trech Kekahuna considers it his second home. At 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, the Saint Louis slotback benches 315 pounds and squats 465. He doesn’t his vertical leap, but he can dunk a basketball. Kekahuna, who also runs a 4.5 in the 40-yard dash, is stoked about his latest scholarship offer — from Nevada. Former Saint Louis standout Anthony Arceneaux is an assistant coach there. So is Nate Costa, who coached Marcus […]

AJ Bianco, Nevada and the Marcus Mariota/Jeremiah Masoli trail

By Paul Honda on January 19, 2022

AJ Bianco envisioned playing lots of basketball this winter with hardly a care in the world about much else. After all, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Saint Louis quarterback was committed to play football for Hawaii. Once basketball season ended, there would be ample time to get ready for a pivotal Warriors season in Manoa. Time changes everything, though. Controversy and the resignation of coach Todd Graham at UH has the program adrift, rudderless without a head coach. Within the past week, […]

Slow starts doom Saint Louis in a long season that started more than 4 months ago

By Jonathan Chen on December 23, 2021

Following a season that got off to a slow start, it seemed only fitting that another slow start doomed the Saint Louis Crusaders in Thursday’s 49-14 loss to Kahuku in the Open Division title game of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA Football State Championships. “Tough one to swallow for sure,” Saint Louis quarterback AJ Bianco said. “This [game] is what you work (for), but we just have to bounce back. Hopefully the boys learn from this and can bounce back.” Before […]
