It’s time to crown another OIA champion in football as Kahuku goes for its first 3-peat since 2003-06. Here is a look at every division I OIA title game over the years. Kahuku’s Makoa Freitas can become the ninth coach to lead the Red Raiders to a league title, joining Vavae Tata, Reggie Torres, Siuaki Livai, Dooug Semones, Famika Anae, Harold Silva, Art Stranske and Mits Fujishige.

Mililani’s Rod York, who is the only coach to bring a league title to the school, can pick up his fourth.
