The Punahou vs. Saint Louis football game on Friday night at Aloha Stadium is considered a Top 10 game nationally by CBS MaxPreps.

The winner will be the Interscholastic League of Honolulu champion and likely earn a better seeding and a bye in the first round of the inaugural Open division state tournament.

Punahou (7-1) topped Saint Louis (7-1) 33-20 at Aloha Stadium on Sept. 29 to even the season series at 1-1. The Crusaders beat the Buffanblu 64-44 on Sept. 9.


Punahou is ranked No. 2 and Saint Louis No. 3 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Top 10.


The top three teams in Hawaii in the CBS MaxPreps national rankings are No. 52 Punahou, No. 68 Saint Louis and No. 93 Kahuku. In the West region, the Buffanblu are tied at No. 11, the Crusaders are No. 14 and the Red Raiders are No. 17.

    Duh.. the ILH recruit the bluechippers that are on college radars, so I guess maxpreps ranks by star power bcause Puns and STL have some pretty awesome individual players. If Kahuku win the title again this year maxprep will put kahuku ahead of the ILH schools for one week and then preseason polls will bump the ILH in front again.

    That pretty cool. Hawaii gets to see a top ten game nationally……three times a year.


  3. 88 October 19, 2016 4:40 pm

    I think MaxPrep had Iolani ranked as the top football school out of Hawaii a couple of years ago because they had the most State Titles. Whatever the case maybe at least our State is getting recognized……

    Televised?? Hopefully??

    Utterly ridiculous red raiders are not highest smh


  6. Paper Crane October 19, 2016 8:14 pm

    He, he, MAX PREP ratings are so incompatible and computerized almost like Windows 10 having bias cyberspace disconnect with skewed numbers whereas not a very reliable source to provide ratings but it’s still good entertainment; mahalo for sharing Nick?

    yes 87, St Louis and Punahou do have great individual players. But it was St Louis who started the excessive all-out recruiting. Back in my days, the 1970s, the ILH would take one star player a year out of the OIA. Which evened things out between the ILH and OIA. St Louis ruined everything. They destroyed the competitive balance of Hawaii state football. Punahou had to recruit if they wanted a competitive football program. Which I think their alumni wants. Just as Maryknoll and Iolani alumni want a dominant basketball program. And how Mid-Pacific is determined to be competitive in baseball.
    This cannot be a Top 10 game nationwide. Both teams will make the Open playoff. But it does mean something. The winner gets a first round bye and avoids playing Kahuku. Unless Kahuku has one of their 5 turnover games and loses.

    87 u still crying?? Bridesmaid

    @ Red Panties for Life…..

    They are all the same and will not stop crying. 87, 88, 97.33, 84.5, 101.27, TooMeke, anywaays, and all their other pseudonyms.

    But let them be. They have to hold tight to their football team. It’s the only thing they are good at. What else can they brag about? Academics? Post High School Life? Alumni? Business Opportunities? This is all they got.

    It’s called the Al Bundy Syndrome.

    @TooMeke, I love how you talk and talk and talk. But when I invited you to show up and MAN UP, you didn’t. Well like I told 88, I will be at StripSteak today at 12:30pm.

    You want to show up? Ask for the GM Ron, and have him direct you to Will’s table.

    And here’s one for you, “do you know what is worse than a male cheerleader (since you like to use that reference), someone who acts tough on the internet, then when is called to shown up and discuss it in person like a man, doesn’t have the sacks to do it.

    No worries son, the whole entire SA Blogging Community know:

    1) You won’t show
    2) Will continue to insult male cheerleaders (for some odd reason)
    3) Will continue to lie
    4) Come back with some lame comment
    5) Won’t reply to why you won’t show up today (and if you do it will be some weak excuse to mask that you are afraid to say anything to my face).

    I look forward to meeting you today TOOMEKE. Remember, park on the 4th floor, since I know you cannot afford the valet pricing. I will even pay for your parking since it’s a little high. Walk across the driveway in front of Sak’s Fifth Avenue and continue until the elevator. Go down to the 3rd floor. Exit the elevator and walk straight and head toward 2 o’clock. Walk into StripSteak. Ask the hostess to call Ron. Ron will direct you to my table for Will. I will even request the private room in the back to make sure there is privacy so you can say whatever you feel like you want to tell me.

    I look forward to meeting you today TooMeke. I will pick up the parking tab, food and beverage tab. Don’t worry, I will be nice to you.


  12. rrfl October 20, 2016 10:38 am

    GROW UP!!!


  13. Education First October 20, 2016 10:38 am

    Let’s all take a scientific survey. Who thinks TooMeke will actually show? This is his 4th opportunity for a free lunch after he was calling people out to meet. Please get your votes in by 12:25pm today (October 20).

    Yes he will show: (VOTE)

    No he will not show: (VOTE)


  14. 88 October 20, 2016 10:42 am

    ToMeke let Education Somtimes be. She has to hold on tight to this blog. It’s the only thing she thinks she is good at. What else can she brag about. Acedemics? Post high school life? Family? Buisness opportunities? This is all she’s got.

    It’s called the “no life so I camp on my moms computer” syndrome.


  15. hwnstyll October 20, 2016 11:12 am

    Nick, why cant you filter out this petty talk and only let real post show up?
    express opinions guys without making it personal.


  16. TooMeke October 20, 2016 11:18 am

    btw what position does maxpreps rankings play on the field?

    Strong side rankings?

    Weak side rankings?

    Free rankings?

    Wide out rankings?

    lol…


  17. TooMeke October 20, 2016 11:22 am

    Too bad EF doesn’t get paid for how many times she types the word “crickets”.

    Hopefully she has a job where she gets paid by how much she types… or talks…

    Cuz den she’s making good money…

    now…if it’s for how well she thinks…?

    well… a’ole.

    HA!!!!!!


  18. Education First October 20, 2016 12:07 pm

    I wonder who is more of a coward? 88 or TooMeke for never showing? The answer is……they are the same person, lol.

    Anyway 88, I know deep down inside it must kill you that I call you out and you don’t have the stones to show up. You got 26 minutes to make it here….

    TICKTOCK TICKTOCK TICKTOCK….time is running out. But then again, the entire bloggin world knows you are:

    1) a wanna be coach
    2) a person who never played football
    3) a coward. But then again, I kind of think everyone already knows this. Not showing up just re-confirms it.

    No worries, keep um coming. I understand this is therapy for you. I won’t charge you. But I do accept Quest. You can thank your government and practically everyone on here for paying their taxes that allows us to have QUEST.

    tick tock…..tick tock….tick tock…


  19. Education First October 20, 2016 12:10 pm

    On the real 88, are you really that scared to meet me? I told you I would pay for lunch. I will pay for drinks. I will pay for your parking. I will even reimburse you for time missed (if you have a job). I will pay you $300/hour (more than most lawyers make in Hawaii). Just show up man. I would love to see this person who calls himself 88 and hides behind his mommy’s computer.

    Reservation for 4 people
    StripSteak – Thursday, October 20 @ 12:30pm
    Reservation under William
    4 Person Booth toward the back of the restaurant. The booth closet to the door leading to the outside seating area.

    Hope to see you buddy….

    Academics?
    Post High School Life?
    Business Opportunites?

    That’s a lot to brag about! Once again 88 is making my argument stronger and he (notice I don’t have to resort to using the word “she” since it’s both unoriginal, not very offensive, and quite overused) doesn’t even know he is doing that. It’s kind of like making his point that less than 1% of Kahuku graduates make it to D1 NCAA Colleges to play on a football scholarship and he thinks that is a huge number.

    HAHA he is such as idiot and doesn’t even know it.

    But….time it still ticking for him until the coward meter hits 12:30pm….ticktock….ticktock…ticktock….


  21. 88 October 20, 2016 12:49 pm

    You think I’m complementing you? Wow….

    88 October 20, 2016 at 12:49 pm
    You think I’m complementing you? Wow….

    I am so disappointed. It’s 12:57 and Little 88 was no where to be seen. 88 may I ask you why you act so tough but when I invite you to join me so you can see who I am, get a free meal, and say whatever your heart desires to my face, you fail to show?

    I mean don’t you find it a little hypocritical to act tough. But when I give you my name, where I will be, what time I will be there, and offer to pay you for both your time and offer you a free meal, you don’t show?

    I mean there’s no shame in being scared. But to act tough and hide, and then get called on it kinda makes you look really bad.

    No worries, I will enjoy this fine meal.

    You had your 1 chance to show the entire SA Community what kind of man you are and you are too scared to come and talk football and backup your thoughts and comments.

    Oh well. Keep hiding behind your screen name and talking big with your chest out even though we all know now you aren’t that big and scary).

    Hahaha, where do you come up with this hilarious stuff! You are the next Dave Chapelle. But on a serious note, on a good day you are about 0.157% of my intelligence. I use high level vocabulary. I cite sources. I do research and offer statistics and data for the general population.

    You offer……THIS? But I will give you a pat on your back. At least you are trying.

    EDUCATION FIRST (Grader), hahah! That is hysterical! But then again, looking at your guys test scores where your kids can barely read, write, and count, being called a first grader is a compliment in Red Raider Country.

    Wait…

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I crack me up sometimes…

    Hey look, it’s the little boy named TooMeke. Hi little fella! Did you enjoy your milk and cookies? I hope I didn’t scare you too badly and you made wee-wee all over mommy’s new rug. I can pay for the cleaning bill since you probably did.

    Well people, TooMeke was blogging up a storm about 2 weeks ago. He was calling out people to meet him to compare academic records or “post academia” as he likes to call it.

    But after I invited him to meet me to compare our academic accomplishments he has yet to show up even though I sent him the times, places, and my name on 3 separate occasions.

    I don’t understand why someone acts tough, but when another person invites that puffy chest little boy to meet, he (TOOMEKE) doesn’t show up?

    TooMeke, if you show up I promise I will play nice and you have nothing to worry about.

    There is some truth in what you write Manley. But at least Trump and Clinton will show themselves. 88, TooMeke, and anywaaays (all the same person) won’t even show themselves in public.

    Let’s recall, anywaays and TooMeke were the ones who started to tell people to meet. and now they won’t show….
