McKinley sophomore Alexandria Buchanan made history last month as the first female quarterback to throw a touchdown pass in a varsity game in Hawaii.
Honolulu Star-Advertiser columnist Dave Reardon profiled her in a story that ran in today’s newspaper which you can read here.
Tigers coach Pat Silva said that Buchanan is McKinley’s starting quarterback “moving forward.”
“As far as I’m concerned and our staff is concerned, she’s our starting quarterback,” Silva said Wednesday, as McKinley prepares to play Kaimuki on Friday. “We decided she’s our best option moving forward. She has the highest percentage of completions in practice (and) throws a really good ball with good touch.”
The Tigers play Kaimuki on Friday at Ticky Vasconcellos Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
