Kahuku’s 35-7 loss to No. 1 Bishop Gorman did absolutely nothing in the minds of voters in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10.

The Red Raiders remained No. 1 in the state receiving 14 of 15 first-place votes for the fourth consecutive week. The lone non-Kahuku first-place vote remained with Saint Louis, which holds steady at No. 2 after a 35-3 win over Kamehameha at Aloha Stadium.

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw for 258 yards and two touchdowns against the Warriors to move to sixth on the career passing list with 6,699 yards.


Punahou bounced back from a 64-44 loss to the Crusaders with a 49-24 win over ‘Iolani to remain at No. 3. The 24 points allowed by Punahou were the most against an ‘Iolani team since 2009.

Waianae shut out Radford, 54-0, to remain at No. 4 with Kapolei enjoying a bye week to get healthy at the receiver position. The Hurricanes knocked off Kailua 34-20 to win their fourth straight game. QB Taulia Tagovailoa threw three touchdown passes, including his first to a receiver not named Jaymin Sarono or Wyatt Perez, and is up to 1,894 passing yards on the season.


The first change took place at No. 6 as Farrington, which was sixth two weeks before dropping to No. 8 last week, moved back up two spots after scoring a school-record 69 points in a blowout of Nanakuli. Mililani, which was idle, remained at No. 7 and Kamehameha dropped two spots to No. 8 after the 32-point loss to the Crusaders.

The neighbor islands hold the final two spots in this week’s rankings with Division II Kapaa remaining at No. 9 and Baldwin taking over the No. 10 spot by one vote over ‘Iolani.


Konawaena also received a vote.

    Lonely & Bitter defines your buddy Red X who also goes by the name 808 RR4L & Kahukuwrckless. Seems lonely for the most part changing names all day. At least we know he is unemployed & spends all of his time practicing how to be different people. And when you say “winning”, wasn’t the last game 35-7? I know you Kahuku people need some special attention when it comes to reading & numbers but 35-7 BG means you loss.

    Hukilau must have the RR4L Burger already. No Beef on Sundays.
    These guys they all switching each others names so that they can have conversations with themselves. I wonder which one is the Mascot’s alternative name.

    anywaays “Keep miring from far bruh’s RR nation is flattered all these novels (tldr) going up showing love for our program”

    the acronym tl;dr stands for “too long; didn’t read.”

    Of course, to use that acronym assumes that you can read to begin with. So far, it doesn’t seem like you, your friend with the 10 different accounts red x, or your idiot internet tough guy friend kahukuwrckless can read anything aside from cereal boxes.

    Please go away, little boy.

    We do not HATE Kahuku.
    We HATE the fact that state championships are being bragged about & the kids & adults can’t read or write. Its so ridiculous that its funny.

    My beef is “how do you talk smack about being good at something (football), when the main reason you go to school is to learn how to read, write, and count. And by looking at the test scores, it is abysmal.

    If I was a parent, I would not be the one confronting Coach Torres since he wanted to create higher standards and benchmarks for academics. I wouldn’t be confronting Coach Akina since he “allegedly” ran plays for his sons.

    They should use their efforts, have a town hall meeting and figure out how to shift the focus from football/sports to the classroom.

    The kids fail in this community because the focus is incorrect. They value the wrong things. And their comeback is something like “we have the most NFL Football Players in the NFL.”

    True, but what about the other 99.5%of kids that will not get to college on a D1 offer or make it to the NFL.

    back to the subject of the article….

    what amazes me is the sheer lack of complaints from the St LuLu faithful that they are not #1 since they are still undefeated…

    …oh wait… maybe they realize…

    HA!!

    RRFL!!

    There is no complaints. When St. Louis smashes Punahou again the state will make their assumptions. And it should be clear that the strength of schedule week in & week out can separate the strong from the week.

    What amazes me that these test scores are so bad at Kahuku that I actually think the entire population should move to Special Education. But instead of working with their kids, parents, such as anywaays, RR4L, TooMeke, 88, 87, 62, 44, 75, and the rest of the Kahuku Welfare Nation, would rather blog than work with their kids.

    My HA > Your HA

    @Education First

    I wonder if Coach Haurbaugh took a look at those scores before offering the scholarship to the freshman.

    @education first. i have never seen so much hatred. You have taken this to a different level. Please stop trying to feel better about your life and yourself by putting these kids down. You somehow find your way into these forums-football related forums all the time. They could write an article about a water main break in kahuku and there you would be, degrading our kids and our community. Don’t you think it’s time to just stop and maybe work on improving your life and yourself. It seems like you have deep, even deeper issues to work on. Do not take it out of our community and our kids. God bless you!

    I am not putting the kids. My comments are directed solely at the adults and parents in this community. You have such passion for football, but do not show that same passion for your children’s academics.

    I understand it’s easier to be passionate and jump on the bandwagon for a successful program such as your football team.

    But what happens for the hundreds and thousands of kids who won’t continue playing football after their walk down that aisle during graduation? What happens then?

    You guys can keep sending the insults. You can keep making up those excuses. You can keep making football the #1 priority. You can keep blogging instead of tutoring. I am not the one who is limiting their children’s opportunities.

    Keep it coming. With every insult, you are just weakening your child’s future.

    Probably not. I believe their next SBAC scores will come out in April/May of his sophomore year. I just hope that Coach Jim Harbaugh didn’t do this as a publicity stunt.


  16. rrfl September 22, 2016 1:46 pm

    @education first. don’t you think it’s time to just stop this name calling and degrading everyone and everything in kahuku. You are the adult here. I would think that you should know better. Too many violence and hatred in this world. Can’t we just all get along here in this tiny island.

    We understand your point of view. Point well taken.
