Six high school football games on the same night as a Hawaii football home game? You bet.

    Another outstanding performance by Challen Faamatau!!!!!
    Five Touchdowns… Although an athletic triumph for Faamatau, the offense needs to spread the game plan around. There is a lot of talent on this Governor squad and may become more effective with there run offense when rotation can keep fresh legs in the backfield. Same with the O line.

    The Govs offense is now predictable. Time to spread the love by opening up the playbook.

    Challen Faamatau the Hardest working back in the state. Okimoto needs to keep him healthy and injury free. When you abuse your runningback play after play, fatigue and injuries will happen.
    Playoffs are right around the corner.
    Okimoto needs to choose the perfect time to put him in and not only score but to outsmart his opponent.
    Okimoto needs to call plays keeping in mind Faamatau is a weapon. Like any weapon, there’s a responsibility of the weapon. Your opponent will not know what to do.
    When you need him, brandish him, carefully aim, and
