The Interscholastic League of Honolulu varsity football schedule is out.

The playoff format has changed. In 2016, all four Division I teams make the playoffs instead of three. In D-II, all three teams make the playoffs instead of no playoff system.

The last date listed on the schedule, Thursday, Oct. 27, is for D-I and D-II playoff games, if necessary. At first glance, it seems odd, because the postseason champions will be determined Oct. 21.


Apparently, both the D-I and D-II regular-season champions will get a huge advantage. If either the D-I or D-II champion loses in the postseason, they’ll get another chance in an overall championship game (Oct. 27) against the team surviving in the playoffs. Hawaii Prep World is in the process of determining if that scenario is correct.

The schedule, listed below, is subject to change.

Thursday, Sept. 1

    The only benefit of winning the D1 title is that the winner will have two weeks off before the start of the state tournament. But eight (and possibly nine) games against brutal, top-notch competition? That’ll leave ANY team banged up!

    Ldub go read Coach Cal Lees remarks about the ILH being too much of a pass league conference that they forget how to stop the run.

    The OIA is more brutal because of run heavy teams like Waianae, Farrington, Kahuku, Campbell. Kahuku was banged up the entire playoffs and were never at 100% in any game. So please dont use injuries as an excuse. Just play baby!!

    Top notch??? Eh…. Sure. Why not. They have 8-9 games against 3 teams? With only 4 teams they should just start their season later on play each other once then just do a short play off and be done. That way they lessen the chance for injuries before states?
