Kamehameha senior Adam Stack, one of two players from Hawaii selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, Jan. 7, in San Antonio, received his jersey today in a presentation on campus.

Stack has committed to Oregon and still plans to enroll in January.

After missing the the first two games of the season returning from a hip injury, Stack went 11-for-11 on extra-point tries and made field goals of 35, 39 and 27 yards for the Warriors.


He was rated the No. 1 prospect by Chris Sailer Kicking when the committed to the Ducks during the summer.

Stack will be joined in the Army All-American Bowl by Saint Louis quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who will receive his jersey at a ceremony at his school on Wednesday.


Tagovailoa, who has committed to Alabama and also plans to enroll in January, was offered by LSU and new head coach Ed Orgeron on Tuesday. Multiple online reports say Orgeron is trying to sway Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, who helped recruit Tagovailoa to Alabama, to take the same job at LSU.


Here’s Kiffin at a Saint Louis practice earlier this year.

Orgeron and Kiffin are connected from their days coaching together at USC.

    I’ll tell u where the difference is. If the ILH is not allowed to go into different communities to recruit and steal their best players then u would be able to say high school football is on an up and up even par in the state. That’s why they should only be allowed one team (their best) to participate in the Open Division. Their team ratio in the regular season is actually only 3 Open,St Louis,Punahou,and Kamehameha. And out of that 2 team’s qualify for the Open Division,the other team sits out because they don’t want to play for any lower division. If all those recruited IHL players stayed home in their communities the ILH would have very little power or talent in sports. The way they steal the best talent in other communities they should be winning every year in every sport. That’s why I give a small community like Kahuku a lot of credit. They make due with what they have and they’re still competitive every year. Because of their Polynesian Warrior Spirit. AND THEY HAVE THE BEST FANS

    Kahuku is good every year because there schedule is weak, no OIA team can compete against Kahuku, if Iolani had Kahuku’s schedule i think Iolani would be on top every year too, glad to see ST. LOUIS knock Kahuku off this year, great job Cal Lee and coaches, your Defense was great this year, you can’t win Championships by only running the ball, Kahuku had no passing game this year, not against St. Louis anyway, maybe against the OIA, but who is the OIA, only Kahuku.

    Kahuku won 8 State titles with a run heavy offense and beat the Crusaders last year with a run heavy offense. Your argument doesn’t make sense

    @ilh “you can’t win Championships by only running the ball”
    Kahuku did it last year against St. Louis by winning 39-14. This year St. Louis just executed better and Tua showed off why he is one of the top QB’s in the nation. It was 13-14 Kahuku going into the 4th if I remember correctly. In my opinion the game was a lot closer then the final score indicates and I think Kahuku just lost focus at the end. Good job St. Louis on this years State Championship. RRFL

    @DaDogCatcher. . . The ilh is good for these kids, especially the ones who come from the hood or country. They can actually take their football talent, get a good private school education and further themselves in college etc. . . and maybe take their family out of any bad situation their in (if any, I’m not saying you can’t in public school, but you know what I mean).

    @ilh. . . You have the right to YOUR opinion, but ilh football will not be what it is without these oia families who send their one child to a private school for the same reason I just explained to @DaDogCatcher.
    Also, St louis or even the ilh will not be what it is if Cal Lee didn’t return to STL after the first time they fired him. . .

    And regarding this article, Tuaman is talented enough to go anywhere and be successful. If playing qb in the nfl is your 1st career choice, then go to a college that can help you with that….

    Take into.consideration when you give the opinion “the game was a lot closer than the final score indicates”.
    St Louis had a muffed punt that led to a Kahuku TD, a dropped TD that led to a FG, a missed FG & numerous missed wide open receivers that would’ve led to points. Not to mention a missed call on a dropped INT in the red zone. Add up all the variables, this game was close because St Louis made it close. Besides the failed leap attempt at the goal line, Kahuku couldn’t respond on offense or defense. They played like they were moving in concrete.

    If Kiffin goes to LSU, TUA should follow.
    Nick Saban does not care about QB’s; he cares about Defense & Ball Control…..
    Kiffin will prepare Tua for the NFL plain and simple!!!!!


  8. hwnstyll November 30, 2016 10:22 am

    Kiffen is a selfabsorb person who gets fired or quits every job he has held, and not one over 3 years. Saban is a proven stable winner.
    I think Tua should pick a west coast team, any of them can get him to the NFL or win a national championship, you dont need to go to alabama.


  9. Manley November 30, 2016 12:16 pm

    Huh? Trolls here too,sheeeeeesh . Get a life,move on,get rid of the red anger.


  10. s_manuwai November 30, 2016 2:28 pm

    Just an observation, but I have yet to see a school on O’ahu with a successful football program that doesn’t have players from outside of their local district. ILH and OIA alike.


  11. Husky77 November 30, 2016 2:40 pm

    UH should hire June Jones as an offensive coordinator at least to try and keep the Tagovailoas home! They both would become state heroes forever, attract top wide receiver recruits and still make it to the NFL under Jones’ tutelage. Tua will become, if given the chance, just another cog in the Alabama machine and history. But he would be the most sought after Hawaii recruit ever to stay at home. If Carson Wentz from South Dakota State can be the 2nd pick in the draft, then the Tagovailoas have an equal shot from here in Hawaii, especially after Mariota has paved the way!

    Nobody talking about “red” around here buddy. Stick to the article, it gets a lot more pleasant.


  13. RidgeRunnerE-5 December 2, 2016 8:01 am

    @ilh, let’s have the Ilh be represented only by players who’s parents can afford the tuition, and send all their star recruits back to their respective communities. The ilh wouldn’t win another state title ever again.


  14. RidgeRunnerE-5 December 2, 2016 8:13 am

    “Kahuku is good every year because (their) schedule is weak.” You mean the schedule that included Waianae(beat Kamehameha 26-20) and Kapolei(beat Punahou 33-21)? “Iolani would be on top every year too” ‘iolani lost to a Mililani team who didn’t even make the oia semifinals.
