    I believe both the St. Louis and Kamehameha FB squads have higher cumulative GPAs than Kahuku. I wanted to confirm but was told that FERPA laws prevented me from accessing data.


  2. Bulukex September 29, 2017 4:10 pm

    St. Louis, Kamehameha, Kahuku regardless of GPA are more relevant and have accomplished more in life than you. Without Hawaiiprepworld you have absolutely no life.

  3. Score keeper September 29, 2017 4:27 pm

  4. Bulukex September 29, 2017 5:58 pm


    You my uce

  5. 88 September 29, 2017 9:31 pm

    The Crusaders must be experimenting with their offensive playbook because this game shouldn’t even be close.

  6. TooMeke September 29, 2017 9:55 pm

    They must be playing their 3rd string

  7. ilh September 29, 2017 11:33 pm

    The Referees tried to keep the game close tonight, not calling penalties on Kamehameha, unbelievable, oh i forgot, Kamehameha’s homecoming, need to make the game close for the WARRIORS.

  8. Robocop September 29, 2017 11:53 pm

    Refs were awful tonight

  9. Recruit dis September 29, 2017 11:56 pm

    First time I ever saw refs call a passing interference with each receiver not touched the entire time until the ball was caught. Parents were going crazy. This isn’t an excuse for anything but I pray that nobody in the entire state has to go through the type of refs st Louis has to go through. This type of officiating is so bad that it hurts the players. They have to get these guys out. They didn’t even know where to place the ball after a penalty. I haven’t seen anyone get this pissed off in the stands since 2010 and before.

  13. Recruit dis September 30, 2017 9:28 am

    Puppy- what happen last year? No worry wait till St. Louis play them this year if you guys even get past mililani.

  14. dafun September 30, 2017 9:41 am

    once again this site has too many kahuku fans who are always making trouble. i didnt even know you guys had computers or phones on your boring side of the island

  15. Recruit dis September 30, 2017 9:44 am

    88- I guess putting up almost 300yds first half is experimenting. They just gotta score when there in the red zone. The score doesn’t do justice if you were watching the offense move the ball pretty easy between the 20.
