Kahuku senior Kekaula Kaniho is the second Red Raider this season named a USA Today Top Star.
Kaniho won a fan vote against 10 other players across the nation to win the award this week, joining teammate Stokes Nihipali-Botelho, who won it earlier this year.
Kaniho has returned interceptions for touchdowns in three of Kahuku’s last four games. The top-ranked Red Raiders have scored 11 total touchdowns on defense this season, shut out six opponents, and allowed only one TD in the last 30 quarters against Hawaii teams.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound defensive back holds FBS scholarship offers from Army, Boise State, Colorado, Hawaii, UNLV, San Diego State, Vanderbilt and Washington State.
Kahuku is ranked No. 22 in the nation by USA Today and plays Farrington on Friday night at Aloha Stadium for the OIA Division I title.
