No. 5 Kamehameha
Countdown story (subscription required)
41 years of Kamehameha football (1973-2014)
With eight returning starters on each side of the ball, there’s a lot of optimism surrounding the Kamehameha football team, which checks in at No. 5 in the Star-Advertiser Preseason Top 10 poll.
Quarterback Fatu Sua-Godinet, who was responsible for 16 touchdowns (nine passing, seven rushing) as a junior is back for his third year in charge of the Warriors offense. Six of those nine passing touchdowns went to Kumoku Noa, who is one of the top pass catchers in the state.
With ‘Iolani’s jump to Division I, all four ILH D-I teams are ranked in the top 10. The problem for Kamehameha is figuring out how to knock off Punahou, which has won four straight ILH titles, and Saint Louis, which looks to be greatly improved under Cal Lee. Doug Cosbie, entering his third season in charge, is 14-5 overall, but just 2-5 against the Crusaders and Buffanblu.
