Kahuku DE named Polynesian Bowl All-Star

Kahuku’s Tausili Fiatoa, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound defensive end, has been selected a Polynesian Bowl All-Star.

Fiatoa, who transferred from Orem (Utah) for his senior season after starting his high school career with the Red Raiders, is the second Kahuku player selected to the game, joining offensive lineman Enokk Vimahi.

Fiatoa is a Brigham Young commit and also holds offers from Fresno State, Oregon State, Utah State and Navy.

    Kahuku’s chances of winning it all just increased with their new O.C.

    Jesus can be the OC but if they play like how they played the Crusaders the first time( hesitant and scared) the result is going to be the same.

    They’ll be anything but hesitant or scared…..monstah mode!!

    Wait some of you said the coaches now you saying the players…so confusing the community.

    @Notes, Really a new OC? Changes made to the coaching staff already? Wow. From my observation Kahuku’s offense is not firing on all cylinders yet. Hopefully wth this new OC they’ll be able to get the offense going. Kahuku has always been a running team and looked like they wanted to be a bit more balanced. However it hasn’t been working. Now that all the remaining games count in the OIA they need to go out there and establish themselves. Defense & special teams has been holding them up so far.

    I missed it. I never heard about a new OC until now. I will assume the previous OC got fired midseason.

    The new OC will be making his debut in probably the most important game in the OIA Open Division when Mililani visits Kahuku next week. Some people may question the change, since it’s occurring mid-season. However, the next four games are critical. Critics and skeptics have already asked why. While supporters , on the other hand, have said it’s about time. What happens against Mililani can be a defining moment for the Red Raider’s season.

    Just like in the Kamehameha/Punahou game defense and special teams should have Kahuku beating any OIA team including Mililani. The offense needs to score on 50% of its possesions in order to beat St. Louis, which I think can happen.

    Fluff games are dangerous. Have a good season, keep healthy, then off to your selected college.

    Congratualtions to Fiatoa. No offer from UH Manoa??? C’mon coach Rolo, if you’d just begin keeping the talent home in Hawaii we’d win the MWC every year, minimum. Hawaii is notorious for lineman, but has been producing gems at every position from QB to Kicker to DE to Safety. Every position is loaded with 4 & 5 star athletes.

    New OC is a Red Raider alum who has coached before. Brings a different skill set and a bit more determination. Prior OC is also an alum who rocked back in the day, but maybe has a little more learning to do in regards to coaching. Appreciate them both, especially the prior OC for staying on board to help out.
