The Kahuku football team is prominently featured in a Sports Illustrated story on si.com.
An in-depth story, written by Austin Murphy, was posted on SI.com Wednesday and can be read here.
Murphy calls the Kahuku football program “the most interesting, exotic, surprising football program in the U.S.” And he proclaims it with apologies to Texas, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.
There are quotes from Red Raiders head coach Makoa Freitas, assistants Sola Soliai and Faasea Mailo as well as from former Kahuku quarterback and assistant Darren Johnson, who is now the head coach at Campbell.
Murphy visited Hawaii a few years ago to write a story on Punahou as the top athletic program in the country.
The Red Raiders (9-1) play Mililani (10-0) in the OIA championship game Nov. 4 at Aloha Stadium. They’ve already qualified for the Division I-Open state tournament and are striving for a record ninth title in the top tier.
