    Sierra Vista has a some Polynesian boys on their team. The were very competitive this past season. Going to be a good test for Kaimuki. Anytime a Hawaii team can play mainland competition is a plus. It exposes them to a different level.

    Sierra vista QB played at Kaimuki the past 2 season. Should be a good game

    Gorman is not playing St. Louis anymore. STL jumped the gun before it could be made official and now it is no more. Too bad cause would’ve been a great game got Hawaii football. Maybe 2019-20 season they can get it together.

    OIA you sound like the typical OIA ADs and politics lol. You should try shaddup and support your OIA teams lol. Kaimuki, like the past few seasons had their hands on their opportunities to take a title but fell short. This year not gonna be different. In fact they get one player that has just as much, if not the most D1 offers going into his senior season next season. No coincidence there, they loaded with talent most of us won’t hear about unless they win it all. Heck they came up to us to scrimmage last year and blew our minds with how good they were and how well they played against our 100plus kids to their 25 lol. They gonna be in it this year. As for the Vegas team, their best defensive player on that team arguably their best player was at Kaimuki. Now they have 3 players this season from Kaimuki and all three happen to be their leaders and captains. The maiava kid and Solomon are both there and yep, their the best players on that team. No be surprised with Kaimuki. Crusaders for life, but watch out for dem Dawgs

    Interesting to hear(crusader ready). Wasn’t the head coach at Kaimuki a former head coach in Las Vegas? How cool of a story that gonna be for him to go back to Vegas this time with his Hawaii team.
