The work never ended as he became an elite quarterback and hoopster at Saint Louis, then a standout QB at Utah. Along the way, he coached Saint Louis to a football state crown and chased his dreams. But again, that sense of climbing to keep up stayed with him. No more. Waialua hired Arceneaux as its athletic director and his […]

By Noelle Kakimoto on October 6, 2019

Down 20-7 with seven minutes left in the third quarter, the odds were stacked against Waialua before it quickly began its comeback to beat Kalani, 35-26. Although the Bulldogs (5-4, 4-3 OIA D-II) notched the first score of the game on a 9-yard touchdown run by senior RB Storm Quilinderino, they wouldn’t see the end zone again until halfway through the third quarter. The Falcons (4-5, 3-4) scored three consecutive touchdowns on a 17-yard pick six by senior linebacker Nicholas […]

Quarterback Kyler Dicion keeps Waialua in playoff hunt

By Brian McInnis on September 28, 2019

All eyes were on Kyler Dicion. The Waialua quarterback had already put together the finest passing game of his career — three touchdowns, no interceptions and 283 yards in the air in the Bulldogs’ 49-14 homecoming/senior night victory over McKinley. But this moment was important. He wanted to nail it. And he did. Dicion, the first up of a dozen Waialua seniors during postgame ceremonies, shredded the Bulldogs’ traditional “senior agility test” put on by coach Lincoln Barit and his staff. […]
