    Dang. Kailua played the #5,842 ranked team in the nation.
    Its like playing a JV team. And they scored 6 points on Kailua. lol.

    No. 12,534 Kalaheo (0-10)
    This is just unacceptable. This is like a freekin Intermediate squad ranking.
    But, they’ll bring the coaches back, like they always do.

    Anyone know what the tiki bowl is? Sounds like a money grab. Seen players flying out. No info on the game anywhere other than their website. Charged $3k to each invited player and fed them 1 meal during their stay. Players stayed in rooms with 4 teammates. A lot of HS kids won’t be able to afford that. Looks like all D2 coaches too. Is it like that for all of the all star games or do the sponsors usually pay for expenses?

    If the parameters was to exclude catholic / $$$ rich private schools then Kahuku would jump big time. If you only included student attending the school from a 10 mile rural “home”radius then Kahuku would be number one. If you included players that made it to the NFL with less resources then for sure Kahuku would be number 1. Top 25 programs now are “football” schools. $$$ go to football programs.

    And if coach Lou were a rancher he’d be covered in bullshed. Too many ifs not enuf is s


  5. Coach Lou January 7, 2020 2:32 pm

  6. RRFL delusion January 7, 2020 9:32 pm
