See the actual OIA-ILH FB alliance proposal here

The link below is a cell phone photograph of the actual email attachment of the OIA-ILH football alliance proposal that went out to more than 50 school principals and athletic directors.

The ILH principals are expected to vote whether to approve the plan on May 3.

No date is set for a vote of OIA principals or the Hawaii High School Association executive board.

OIA-ILH Football Proposal

    I dont see them wanting to combine Leagues with the OIA in any other sport….oh, thats right they dominate everything else but Football.

    Brotherhood Cry babys!

    1. Recruit/buy the best Oahu players
    2. …When that doesnt work, recruit/buy from neighbor islands
    3. …When that doesnt work, buy the whole conference

    Who plays the victim more than the OIA

    And one question about Damien: do they really belong in D1? I thought their numbers were going down because of the inclusion of girls. They barely won D2 in the ILH last year. If their numbers increase maybe they could work at D1 but at their current rate they’d be bottom-feeders.

    Stay in your own lane!

    Why dont the ILH use that 3 million and go travel to the mainland once a year to play the best mainland teams? Because im sure you guys are using the excuse that a super conference would increase exposure for Hawaiis football talent and national high school rankings.

    No! Going to the mainland and playing other private recruiting teams would help you in your national rankings and exposure. Besides, Hawaii is not hurting when it comes to college exposure, we have 8th graders getting college offers, sophmores and juniors with multiple offers. The colleges are coming here.

    Its all a smokescreen for St. Louis and Punahou to increase their reputations and investor relationships. While Kahuku continue to play on dirt fields and run on a water puddle track.

    88, you think anyone else will care about your hatred of the ILH and the fact that you blame them for everything wrong that happens in your life?

  6. 88 April 26, 2016 3:42 pm

    I dont hate the ILH, just stay in your own lane, you guys cramping our style!

    Eh, why come to a public forum, post, and then get salty balls when people reply. What’s the point?

    88, why not let ESPN televise the Bishop Gorman – Kahuku game and then use the proceeds to build a field turf football field?

    The only downfall to this scenario would be potentially seeing 2 ILH teams in the state championship football game. You want to have a feel of it being a state championship game, not a game for the ILH title.

    I think we have a better chance of seeing 2 OIA schools in the State Title game before we see 2 ILH teams. If the Govs can get more fit and mobile offensive linemen they might have a good chance. Remember Kahuku was a a fumble away a few years ago that would of had them playing Mililani for the State Title. The ILH can recruit all they like it’s just the mentality of NEXT MAN UP that the kids need to buy into. Using the excuse of losing players to the ILH is just that, an EXCUSE. Anyone that went to a Waipahu game last year saw them lose but they also saw the SIZE of those kids. Not fat kids running around but good size players who are probably just a Head Coach away from being a contender. Kaiser had some ANIMALS too.

    That 1 page proposal is really, really lacking. Where was it written up? At the bar top at STL alumni on Isenberg?

  12. Nick Abramo April 27, 2016 1:20 pm

    88 … Good point about Kahuku playing on dirt field and water puddle track. They need to go to higher ground. They’re at sea level. If any school deserves a brand-new artificial turf field, it’s Kahuku. But, then there goes that beautiful “cloud of dust” when they run up the middle for 5,6, 7 or 25 yards.

    We don’t need a new field. The one we have is just fine. However it would be nice to have a proper Auditorium or an upgrade to the cafe&food or a better gym that didn’t double as a sauna. Anyone that has been to a Kahuku Ball or Vball game knows what i’m talking about. Our field is just fine. There is a reason we call that field the House of Pain….

    it’s about the money, the private school need money

  15. YNAE April 28, 2016 11:49 am

    Private and public schools can never beat 2 OIA schools and that 2 school is Waianae and Kahuku they have the biggest fans that loves to eat that is the reason other schools like when this 2 school play on their campus they know their food concession going make money.
