Kahuku vaulted into the top 100 teams in the MaxPreps high school football national computer rankings.

The Red Raiders (10-0), ranked No. 3 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Top 10, jumped 47 spots to No. 86 nationally and are MaxPreps’ top-rated Hawaii team. They are coming off a 43-0 win over Farrington in the OIA semifinals.

Saint Louis (8-1), the newly crowned ILH champion after a 27-23 win over Punahou, is No. 1 by the Star-Advertiser and No. 3 in Hawaii by MaxPreps, which moved the Crusaders up 28 places to No. 120.

    Mililani vs. Kahuku
    A word to the officials, let the kids play, I hate seeing the yellow rag fly & the ref donʻt know what he is calling, the officials make the game ugly, the fans go to the games to watch 2 good football teams play, not watch zebras run around and take the fight out of the game….
    Good football teams get there by coaching & good athletes working hard…

    How sweet it is like Max Prep is legit and there’s no opposing refereeing officials.

    I’ve said it many times in the past several wks. that Kahuku will win the OIA championship and it won’t even be close as they will run over, around, and through Mililani’s defense and when Mililani stacks up against the run, Kahuku will throw short passes resulting in yds. after catch ….Kahuku will then play St. Louis for the State Championship as no other team will be able to beat Kahuku or St. Louis in the State’s playoff and the same scenario will occur where Kahuku will eventually wear down St. Louis…..they will also get to the S.L. Q.B. resulting in several sacks…..Kahuku wins the States.
