The USA Today Super 25 Top Star of the week honor was given to Kahuku freshman quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava on Thursday.
The speedy playmaker scored two touchdowns in Kahuku’s 44-8 win over Farrington for the Oahu Interscholastic Association Division I football championship on Friday at Aloha Stadium. He was 6-for-10 with 128 passing yards and gained 79 rushing yards on just six carries.
Maiava, who has a scholarship offer from Michigan, is the third Kahuku Red Raider to be honored by USA Today for the national award. Cornerback Stokes Nihipali-Botelho was the honoree in Week 1, and cornerback Kekaula Kaniho was honored last week.
