Extra point: I don’t recall a season when underclassmen QBs played this well. Between Milton, Tagovailoa and Tuliloa, we are in the midst of a special era.


10/22
OK, 312 passing yards, three TDs, plus the 47 rushing yards and 3-yard TD run. He got all the passing numbers in the first half. Here’s thing the thing with Milton. He doesn’t need to produce big numbers to be the maestro of this offense. He does need to be on point with every play, since so much of York’s hybrid design is dependent on immaculate timing. It just so happens that as a function of having four wideouts and an elite RB who can catch passes, no defense can cover every potential target on every snap. Milton knows this well. The other thing is this: he’s not greedy. As York says, they take what defense give. So if that means a 5-yard pass on every play until paydirt, so be it.

∆∆ Total 163-236-3-2,571, 33 TD; 69.1%; 10.9 YPA; 257.1 YPG; 204.18 QBR
rush 89-553, 7 TD; 6.2 YPC; 55.3 YPG
XP: Thirty-three TD passes. Three picks. Another seven TDs on the ground. Extraordinary numbers, but they don’t really do justice to what Tagovailoa does on the field in the face of rapid-quick fire. The decision making. The authority and conviction with which he changes the flow mid-stream. He had a few youthful errors now and then, but for the most part, he played with the wisdom of a sage, older QB. He may improve on these numbers next year or the year after. For now, it’s OK to sit and meditate on a truly great performance.

10/22
Vision and discipline are keys to his production. With his speed, it would be tempting to take off every half-chance he got. But that would good defenses have a way of smelling greed, and that usually results in bad things for an offense. So Tagovailoa keeps his eyes downfield even as his feet take him to the threshold that most defenders cannot control. In space, empty space, he is excellent at making a defender choose. I suspect that in the postseason. defenses will live with the consequences of cornering Tagovailoa before he can rip off another 55-yard TD run. More often than not, he’ll be smart and focused enough to draw, dish and watch his receivers score.

3. Ephraim Tuliloa, Punahou >> Pupule rating: 98
6-2, 205, Jr. 
∆∆ vs #7 Saint Louis (Aloha) Aug 29 22-35-0-441, 6 TD (45,43,80,11,23,44) rush 0-0

∆∆ Total 102-145-2-1,706, 18 TD; 70.3%; 11.8 YPA; 284.3 YPG; 207.38
rush 18-81, TD
XP: Another scintillating performance for Tuliloa, but underneath the big win, this is one way to know how much Saint Louis’ defense improved. In the first meeting, Tuliloa threw for 441 yards and six TDs on 35 attempts without a pick. This time, he threw for a still-robust 346 yards and three TDs, but on a season-high 49 attempts. and he was picked once. That dropped Tuliloa’s QBR from an insane 241.40 to a more human 207.38. That’s still an enormous number, roughly 15 points higher than that of Marcus Mariota as a senior at STL.

10/22
His QBR is astounding. I don’t remember seeing anyone pull this off, above 200 for a whole season, let alone 230 or 240. Then again, he’s played only five games, no fault of his own. He is the maestro of every concert. He may have weapons galore at his finger, but someone’s got to operate the distribution. And he has mastered it.

It is conceivable that Punahou could get upset by Saint Louis in the ILH D-I title game. Then Tuliloa would’ve played in just six games all season. His numbers would still be superb and preposterous. And it’s possible that voters would subject him to a slight decline of popularity in the All-State voting unless his team made the state tourney. I know that’s how some, even many, panelists think. But All-State is about individual achievement in the context of a team sport, and there is no cut-and-dried criteria. But if you ask me to separate Tuliloa, Milton and Tagovailoa right now, that’s a hard call. Thank goodness we are weeks away from dealing with that.

4. Kalanimoku Pauole, Leilehua >> Pupule rating: 94
5-9, 170, Sr.
∆∆ vs Kailua Aug 16 10-17-1-326, 3 TD (66,41,74), 2-pt pass rush 2-16

Extra point: Given a chance to start, Pauole flourished. He had a very, very good season with huge numbers against the lower-tiered teams and serviceable numbers against Top 10 defenses.

5. Kawika Keama-Jacobe, Moanalua >> Pupule rating: 93

∆∆ Total 165-295-13-2,432, 21 TD; 55.9%; 8.2 YPA; 304 YPG; 139.86
three 2-pt conversions by pass
rush 79-164, 5 TD
XP: Stack it up any way you like, this was a remarkable season for the Moanalua offense. No real running game. Every defense knew what was coming. He kept throwing to the tune of 8.2 yards per attempt. That’s basically incredible. Most QBs at the prep level who throw this much won’t average 8.2. Last year, Micah Kaneshiro had a glorious season, but that came with a 6.6 YPA. Keama-Jacobe had a first-year deep threat in Karson Cruz. Kaneshiro had a UH-bound Donald Lambert. But I think on the whole, KKJ had a slightly better receiving corps.

Let’s compare numbers.
Kaneshiro, 2013 (9 games): 231-406-16-2,695, 25 TD; 56.9%; 6.6 YPA; 299.4 YPG; 125.09 QBR
Keama-Jacobe, 2014 (8 games): 165-295-13-2,432, 21 TD; 55.9%; 8.2 YPA; 304 YPG; 139.86 QBR
That’s right. In just one more game played, Kaneshiro threw 111 MORE PASSES. Seems impossible given all of Keama-Jacobe’s throws, but it’s true.
As for rushing stats, Kaneshiro had 22 carries for minus-55 yards. Keama-Jacobe finished at 22 carries for positive-63 yards and five TDs.
Both QBs put everything they had out there. There aren’t a lot of coaches (like Jason Cauley) who will let their guys throw the ball 300 or 400 times in a season. I would have to guess that they had a lot of fun.

6. (tie) Kainoa Ferreira, Pac-Five >> Pupule rating: 90
5-11, 150, So.
∆∆ @ King Kekaulike Aug 16 34-64-0-515, 6 TD (4,15,52,85,29,55) rush 3-(-20)

∆∆ Total 170-353-10-2,268, 23 TD; 48.2%; 6.4 YPA; 324 YPG; 117.96
rush 17-(-33)
XP: Though it was just one week that was lost to inclement weather (Week 1), this will probably be known forever as a shortened season of what if. The Wolfpack, like most teams, played just eight games in all.In most years, the ILH format would’ve left P5 and the rest of the D-II programs with one more game guaranteed. By ending that semi-round robin format (one game against D-I teams, two against D-II, no playoffs), the teams that lose in the first round of playoffs have one less game. That would be Pac-Five and St. Francis.

One less game means less hitting, fewer injuries for teams that may be smaller, younger and/or less prepared to handle a potential nine- or 10-game schedule (or more!). (Note: Ferreira sat out the Punahou game with a foot injury, so he had just seven games total.) But we can wonder what kind of numbers Ferreira and his air force would have put up with 10 or 12 games. It’s easy to lament, I guess, because their offense was relatively healthy all year long. But as a fan, I still want more Fun Gun. In eight games, nobody had more pass attempts, not even Kawika Keama-Jacobe of Moanalua.

XP: Arguably the best running QB in the state.
10/22
He may project as an athlete, period, being a standout defensive back for the Lunas, as well. But for now, Filikitonga-Lukea does exactly what his team needs to be as effective as possible on offense. Unbeaten. ‘Nuff said.

rush 24-5
XP: Efficiency and precision are absolutely necessary in ‘Iolani’s offense, and Jim On carries through quite well on both fronts.

10/22
Protecting a somewhat thin defense (and roster, actually), the Raiders have run the ball proficiently this year, which also means the ball is up in the sky a lot less. Jim On is capable of playing in manager and launch attack modes, but control and discipline are big assets in the Raiders’ offense.

XP: It’s interesting to watch the development of Liana. It’s his third year as the starter, but he hasn’t been asked to do a whole lot of things outside of the usual Govs box. Case in point: on the fourth-and-goal play from the Kahuku 2-yard line, he rolled out, saw Kahuku in zone coverage, and decided to tuck it and head to the goal line. He got past one tackler, but was stopped by a second one short of a TD. This is not something the Govs have done a lot of in the past. If anything, Liana would roll out on play action and throw the ball. Rarely ran it. Given a chance to do the play again, he probably would’ve been a little more patient and simply drawn the defender before dishing it to an open teammate near the pylon. It’s an experience thing.

10/22
The Governors will throw just enough to keep defenses honest. Liana happens to be a senior, a guy who works hard in the offseason, and has the experience to lead that had virtually all-new starters at the skill positions. He is 34-for-50 (68 percent) for five TDs (and one INT) and 535 yards. That’s a QBR of 186.88, the best three-game stretch of his three-year career as a starter.

XP: With 524 rushing yards (not including the questionable non-rushing numbers against Pac-Five), Sua-Godinet was one of the most dangerous QB playmakers in the state this year. Again, the shortened schedule leaves questions. He was really coming into his own over the course of the season. I would’ve loved to see him play another two or three games. It’s still been just over a year since he made the switch from WR.

XP: Judd’s season stats look a lot like those of Fatu Sua-Godinet. And they’re both converted WRs. Sua-Godinet is the breakaway threat with his feet. Judd came up huge in the upset win over Kahuku.

XP: As Kanehailua goes, so go the Golden Hawks. They’ve got the ground attack, a formidable offensive line led by Lyle Tuiloma — oh wait. Tuiloma did not play in the playoff game against Kalani, the ground game slowed, and Kanehailua came through big with two TD passes to rally the Golden Hawks to a state berth.

10/22
The senior had, arguably, his worst game as a passer in the (regular-season) win over Kalani. Still, he made enough plays with his feet, and most importantly, he didn’t throw a pick. Kanehailua knows how to steer the ship and get his team in position to win. The Golden Hawks are unbeaten going into the OIA D-II playoffs.

XP: Getting the offense going was tougher the second time around against Mililani.

10/22
Taking the ball out of their young QB’s hands and into those of steady running backs Austin May and Terell Johnson has been a wise move for the Sabers. Savea is capable of lighting up the scoreboard, given his great weapons downfield. Right now, though, they can control the tempo with their O-line, running game and stout defense. That will give Savea time to mature and grow.

Note: Committed to Utah as TE
XP: It wasn’t pretty, but it was effective. With the Red Raiders’ defense stepping up, the pressure is a bit lightened for the offense and its QB. Wily-Matagi is especially tough on the run, at 6-3, 220 (or 6-4, 235). I wonder if he’ll stay at TE when he gets to college, or whether the temptation to move him to LB or even strong safety overrides.
