Kahuku-Mililani, Saint Louis-Campbell blockbusters kick off football action Aug. 13

Kailua and Punahou will usher in the return of prep football on Oahu with a matchup at Alex Kane Stadium on Aug. 6.

That game is one of three in interleague play on weekend one of the 2021 season. High school football has not been played on an official league basis since the fall of 2019. In the spring of ’21, Kamehameha, Punahou and Saint Louis competed in controlled, non-league scrimmages.

Though no league in the islands has official declared a fall sports season, the schedule says it all. On Aug. 7, Radford will host Damien and Kaiser will play at ‘Iolani in Division I matchups.


One of the most noticeable regular-season openers will pit Kahuku at Mililani on Aug. 13. Another intriguing matchup: ILH D-I powerhouse ‘Iolani at recently promoted Roosevelt on that same date.

Scrimmages are set to begin on July 29, 10 days after the official start of football season. Coaches across the state are cautiously optimistic about bringing along first-year varsity players never got to develop in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and cancellation of league-sanctioned prep football in the islands.

    So it looks like no Kahuku games at KAHUKU?? That was decades old tradition. Why? No revenues, no money? That’s how you break a program down. Why is Waianae playing at their field? Or Campbell? Or Mililani??

    Kahuku’s new home field is under construction, no home games for 2021 season.

    Kahuku is getting a new football field, hence no games. New stadium should be ready to go 2022 season.
