Farrington receiver Kingston Moses-Sanchez is recovering from a concussion he suffered in Saturday’s 31-19 victory over Campbell in the OIA third-place game at Mililani, according to Governors coach Randall Okimoto.

Moses-Sanchez was on a route and attempting to catch a pass from quarterback Montana Liana late in the third quarter. As the ball arrived, he was hit high by Campbell safety Abiel Taito.


Moses-Sanchez hit the ground and was motionless face down until help arrived from trainers. Not long after, he was moved to his back and it appeared he could move his arms and legs. After a delay, an ambulance arrived and drove him to a hospital.


Okimoto said Moses-Sanchez probably won’t play Friday against Maui in the first round of the state tourament, but if the Govs win, he will be evaluated again and it is possible he’ll play.

    This game was absolutely out of control and painful to watch. At what point does it become obvious that the players are not being reigned in?! OC16 commentators even addressed the issue of player safety ie: maybe the game should have been stopped. ….so many boys were hurt and thank God none seriously. Furthermore, HPD had to be called in to Mililani’s campus and it was reported that there were some altercations in Mililani Town Center….really???! Such behavior reflects poorly on everyone…school, team, coaches, parents and community. Enough already. There should have been several ejections throughout this game!
