WIDE RECEIVERS/TIGHT ENDS
1. Kanawai Noa, Punahou >> Pupule rating: 99
6-1, 185, Sr. 
∆∆ #7 Saint Louis (Aloha) Aug 29 rec 7-242, 3 TD (45,43,80)
∆∆ vs Damien (Aloha) Sept 5 rec 2-36 PR 66-yd TD
∆∆ vs St. Francis Sept 13 rec 3-83, TD (37)
∆∆ vs ‘Iolani Sept 27 rec 6-169, TD (63)
∆∆ Total rec 18-530, 5 TD; 29.4 YPR; 132.5 YPG
PR – TD
Extra point: One day, probably in the distant, distant future, Punahou football will look nothing like it does today. Cycles happen. The University of Chicago was once a college football monster powerhouse. Today? No football. Not for decades. But when that century arrives and the Buffanblu play football no more, they will look back at video of Noa, marvel at his many achievements, and wish they he had more games to play in. Just for more footage. Marvelous footage.

2. Tsubasa Brennan, Pac-Five >> Pupule rating: 96
6-1, 170, Sr.
∆∆ vs King Kekaulike Aug 16 rec 19-292, 4 TD (15,52,29,55)
∆∆ vs St. Francis (Aloha) Aug 19 rec 11-144, 2 TD (17,31)
∆∆ vs #8 Saint Louis (Aloha) Sept 5 rec 14-119, TD (19)
∆∆ vs ‘Iolani (Aloha) Sept 20 rec 8-73
∆∆ vs #5 Kamehameha (Aloha) Sept 27 rec 2-89, TD (84)
∆∆ Total rec 54-717, 8 TD; 13.3 YPR; 143.4 YPG
Extra point: The Warriors kept a lid on Brennan most of the night, but that opened up opportunities for Grey Ihu, who caught two TD passes.


3. Kalakaua Timoteo, Mililani >> Pupule rating: 94
6-1, 195, Jr. 
∆∆ vs #3 Saint Louis Aug 16 rec 9-167, TD (17)
∆∆ vs Kailua Aug 23 rec 4-134, TD (78)
∆∆ vs #10 Kapolei Aug 30 rec 6-79
∆∆ @ Aiea Sept 12 rec 4-165, TD (53)
∆∆ @ #6 Campbell Sept 19 rec 5-57, TD (11)
∆∆ vs #3 Farrington Sept 27 rec 3-60, TD (42)
∆∆ Total rec 31-662, 5 TD; 21.4 YPR; 110.3 YPG
Extra point:

4. (tie) Jayce Bantolina, Campbell >> Pupule rating: 93
6-2, 205, Sr.
∆∆ vs Castle Aug 15 rec 5-69, TD (34)
∆∆ vs Moanalua Aug 22 rec 6-74, TD (16)
∆∆ vs Kailua Sept 5 rec 2-41, TD (15)
∆∆ @ Kapolei Sept 12 rec 9-170, 2 TD (13,75)
∆∆ vs #2 Mililani Sept 19 rec 5-111, TD (47)
∆∆ @ Aiea Sept 27 rec 2-27
∆∆ Total rec 29-482, 6 TD; 16.6 YPR; 80.3 YPG
Extra point: Tied a season-low with two receptions, and Aiea became the first defense to keep Bantolina out of the end zone. Looks every bit the part of a future Division I college receiver.

4. (tie) Jason Sharsh, Moanalua >> Pupule rating: 93
5-9, 152, Sr.
∆∆ @ #8 Waianae Aug 15 rec 5-89, 2 TD (14,28)
∆∆ @ #7 Campbell Aug 22 DNP (back)
∆∆ vs #5 Farrington Aug 29 DNP (back)
∆∆ vs Kapolei Sept 5 rec 5-94
∆∆ vs Aiea Sept 19 rec 11-232, 2 TD (31,26), 2-pt catch rush 1-4
∆∆ @ Kailua Sept 27 rec 7-121, TD (13) rush 0-0
∆∆ Total rec 28-536, 5 TD; 19.1 YPR; 134 YPG
2-pt reception
rush 1-4
Extra point: This is how productive Sharsh has been in spite of his early-season back injury. His line against Kailua (7-121-1) actually dropped his yardage averages. No matter. He came through with the game-winning TD catch with 31 seconds left against Kailua and is averaging 134 receiving yards per game. If you scan these WR stats closely enough, it’s awfully difficult to reach that level EVERY week, let alone once or twice in a season.

6. Kainoa Wilson, Mililani >> Pupule rating 91 (INJ)
5-11, 155, Sr.
∆∆ vs #3 Saint Louis Aug 16 rec 8-161, 2 TD (6,15) pass 1-1-0-33
∆∆ vs Kailua Aug 23 DNP (INJ – collarbone)
∆∆ vs #10 Kapolei Aug 30 DNP (INJ – collarbone)
∆∆ vs Aiea Sept 12 DNP (INJ – collarbone)
∆∆ @ #6 Campbell Sept 19 DNP (INJ – collarbone)
∆∆ vs #3 Farrington Sept 27 DNP (INJ – collarbone)
∆∆ Total rec 8-161, 2 TD; 20.1 YPR; 161 YPG
Extra point: Timoteo’s emergence cushioned the blow early in the season when Wilson got hurt. Now that Timoteo may be out for some time, the Trojans probably could use Wilson more than ever. Collarbone injuries normally take 5-6 weeks to heal. He might be due back soon.

7. (tie) Allan Cui, Saint Louis >> Pupule rating: 90
5-8, 160, Sr.
∆∆ vs #3 Mililani Aug 16 rec 10-112, 2 TD (7,17)
∆∆ vs St. John Bosco (Calif) Aug 22 rec 4-29
∆∆ vs #1 Punahou (Aloha) Aug 29 rec 3-30
∆∆ vs Pac-Five (Aloha) Sept 5 rec 5-54, TD (10)
∆∆ @ ‘Iolani Sept 13 rec 4-69, TD (21)
∆∆ vs #4 Kamehameha (Aloha) Sept 20 rec 2-54, TD (28)
∆∆ vs St Francis (Aloha) Sept 27 DNP?
∆∆ Total rec 28-348, 5 TD; 12.4 YPR; 58 YPG
Extra point:

7. (tie) Sean Kinel, Pac-Five >> Pupule rating: 90
5-9, 160, Sr.
∆∆ vs King Kekaulike Aug 16 rec 4-133, TD (85)
∆∆ vs St. Francis (Aloha) Aug 29 rec 5-85, 2 TD (6,24)
∆∆ vs #8 Saint Louis (Aloha) Sept 5 rec 6-116, TD (21)
∆∆ vs ‘Iolani (Aloha) Sept 20 rec 4-77, TD (27)
∆∆ vs #5 Kamehameha (Aloha) Sept 27 rec 2-11, TD (12)
∆∆ Total rec 21-422. 6 TD; 20.1 YPR; 84.4 YPG
Extra point: Kamehameha limited Kinel and Tsubasa Brennan to four total receptions.

7. (tie) Micah Ma‘a, Punahou, Sr. >> Pupule rating: 90
∆∆ #7 Saint Louis (Aloha) Aug 29 rec 5-66, TD (11)
∆∆ vs Damien (Aloha) Sept 5 rec 2-100, 2 TD (39,61)
∆∆ vs St. Francis Sept 13 DNP?
∆∆ vs ‘Iolani Sept 27 rec 3-69
∆∆ Total rec 10-235, 3 TD; 23.5 YPR; 78.3 YPG
Extra point: Anyone who says volleyball players can’t play football, please take note. And when football is pau, Ma‘a has basketball to look forward to. Buffanblu fans can only hope that the versatile Ma‘a stays healthy going into volleyball season in the spring.

14. (tie) Destin Moss, Kaiser >> Pupule rating: 90
5-10, 175, Sr.
∆∆ vs Aiea Aug 15 rec 5-95, 2 TD (20,18)
∆∆ vs Waianae Aug 22 rec 3-12
∆∆ vs Waipahu Sept 5 rec 2-87, TD (76)
∆∆ vs McKinley Sept 12 rec 2-49, TD (34)
∆∆ vs #3 Kahuku Sept 19 rec 3-173, TD (99)
∆∆ @ Castle Sept 26 rec 10-80, TD (17)
∆∆ Total rec 25-496, 6 TD; 19.8 YPR; 82.7 YPG
Extra point: Castle’s defense did a fairly stellar job of containing RB Jensen McDaniel, which left Moss as a key playmaker. He delivered with a personal best 10 receptions. No other Cougar caught more than three passes (McDaniel). Right now, the formula is working and Moss is a big part of it.

11. (tie) Clifford Cunningham, Nanakuli >> Pupule rating: 89
5-8, 150, Jr.
∆∆ vs Kalaheo Aug 16 rec 5-54, TD
∆∆ vs Roosevelt Aug 29 rec 3-77, TD
∆∆ @ Waialua Sept 6 rec 2-94, TD (18)
∆∆ vs Kaimuki Sept 13 rec 3-65, TD (50)
∆∆ vs Anuenue Sept 19 rec 2-73, TD (40)
∆∆ vs Pearl City Sept 26 rec 2-24
∆∆ Total rec 17-387, 5 TD; 22.8 YPR; 64.5 YPG
Extra point: His TD streak came to an end after five games, but Cunningham hardly has a dull moment with his job as a placekicker.

11. (tie) Drew Kobayashi, Saint Louis >> Pupule rating: 89
6-2, 185, Jr.
∆∆ vs Mililani Aug 16 rec 4-57
∆∆ vs St. John Bosco (Calif) Aug 22 rec 2-22
∆∆ vs #1 Punahou (Aloha) Aug 29 rec 0-0
∆∆ vs Pac-Five (Aloha) Sept 5 rec 3-134, 2 TD (64, 20)
∆∆ @ ‘Iolani Sept 13 rec 3-76, TD (67)
∆∆ vs #4 Kamehameha (Aloha) Sept 20 rec 3-37, TD (21)
∆∆ vs St Francis (Aloha) Sept 27 rec 3-59, 2 TD (26,21)
∆∆ Total rec 18-395, 6 TD; 21.9 YPR; 56.4 YPG
Extra point: One teammate can make all the difference. Let’s say Konawaena was a pass-heavy machine and Kobayashi’s family had opted to stay on the Big Island rather than move to Oahu some years ago. He would be the go-to receiver and, if his QB was elite level, his numbers would be insane. Something along the lines of what Tsubasa Brennan has done so far. But if Konawaena didn’t have a prolific passer, he’d be stuck in that system, seen only by BIIF fans. In other words, the move to attend Saint Louis, even if the ball is spread around to a large committee of talented pass catchers, was worthwhile.

11. (tie) Keoni-Kordell Makekau, ‘Iolani >> Pupule rating: 89
5-9, 162, Jr.
∆∆ vs Mino Jiyu (Japan) Aug 16 rec 1-18
∆∆ vs Damien Aug 29 rec 9-154, TD (61)
∆∆ #8 Saint Louis Sept 13 rec 4-42, TD (15)
∆∆ vs St Francis (Aloha) Sept 20 rec 4-43, TD (10)
∆∆ @ #1 Punahou Sept 27 rec 3-74
∆∆ Total rec 21-331, 3 TD; 15.8 YPR; 66.2 YPG
Extra point:

14. (tie) Karson Cruz, Moanalua 6-1, 180, Sr. >> Pupule rating: 88
∆∆ @ #8 Waianae Aug 15 rec 2-43
∆∆ @ #7 Campbell Aug 22 rec 2-16
∆∆ vs #5 Farrington Aug 29 rec 10-310, 2 TD (52,40)
∆∆ vs Kapolei Sept 5 rec 1-4
∆∆ vs Aiea Sept 19 rec 2-13, 2-pt catch
∆∆ @ Kailua Sept 27 rec 5-43, 2 TD (17,6)
∆∆ Total rec 19-430, 4 TD; 22.6 YPR; 71.7 YPG
2-pt reception

14. (tie) Joshua Hiwatashi, KS-Maui >> Pupule rating: 88
∆∆ vs Maui (WMS) Aug 21 rec 13-198
∆∆ vs Lahainaluna (WMS) Aug 30 rec 4-74, TD (43)
∆∆ vs King Kekaulike Sept 5 rec 9-67
∆∆ vs Baldwin Sept 19 rec 9-97
∆∆ vs #9 Lahainaluna Sept 27 rec 7-31
∆∆ Total rec 42-467, TD; 11.1 YPR; 93.4 YPG
Extra point: The Lunas limited Hiwatashi to his lowest single-game yardage total.

14. (tie) Keoni Keanini, KS-Maui >> Pupule rating: 88
∆∆ vs Maui (WMS) Aug 21 rec 3-21, TD (5)
∆∆ vs Baldwin Sept 19 rec 15-263, TD (87)
∆∆ vs #9 Lahainaluna Sept 27 rec 9-57, TD (22)
∆∆ Total rec 27-341, 3 TD

14. (tie) Tyreek Keough, Leilehua >> Pupule rating: 88
∆∆ vs Kailua Aug 16 rec 3-87 yards, TD (74)
∆∆ vs McKinley Aug 22 rec 4-26
∆∆ @ #9 Waianae Aug 29 rec 2-34, 2-pt reception
∆∆ vs Castle Sept 5 rec 4-50
∆∆ @ Waipahu Sept 12 rec 4-103, 3 TD (16,61,19)
∆∆ @ #7 Kahuku Sept 27 rec 2-14, TD (16)
∆∆ Total rec 19-314, 5 TD; 16.5 YPR; 52.3 YPG

14. (tie) Lauriano Lucas, Leilehua >> Pupule rating: 88
∆∆ vs Kailua Aug 16 DNP?
∆∆ vs McKinley Aug 22 rec 4-51, 2 TD (10,30)
∆∆ @ #9 Waianae Aug 29 rec 2-126, TD (86)
∆∆ vs Castle Sept 5 rec 5-42, TD (5)
∆∆ @ Waipahu Sept 12 rec 3-148, 2 TD (59,82)
∆∆ @ #7 Kahuku Sept 27 rec 1-5
∆∆ Total rec 15-372, 6 TD; 24.8 YPR; 74.4 YPG
Extra point: One element of a great defense is its ability to shut down an offense’s big-play receiver. Kahuku did the job on Lucas.

14. (tie) Kumokuliihanana Noa, Kamehameha >> Pupule rating: 88
∆∆ @ Del Oro (Calif) Aug 29 rec 4-26, TD (7)
∆∆ vs St. Francis Sept 5 DNP?
∆∆ vs Damien Sept 11 rec 3-98
∆∆ vs #8 Saint Louis (Aloha) Sept 20 rec 3-39, 2 TD (21,4)
∆∆ vs Pac-Five (Aloha) Sept 27 rec 3-30, TD (19)
∆∆ Total rec 13-193, 4 TD; 14.8 YPR; 48.3 YPG
Extra point: Would you rather play in the OIA, enjoying 10, 12, maybe even 13 games in a full season, or stay in the ILH, where you could play as few as seven or eight games? Of course, you’d rather stay at your school, wherever it is. But all the clamor about the lack of games in the ILH… well, the OIA has all the chips. They wanted to make things more interesting; they created non-geographical D-I divisions. They don’t need the ILH and they know it. But… if Kumoku Noa were at a public school (D-I) where throwing the ball is a mandate, his stats would be significantly different. Maybe Kalakaua Timoteo different. Jason Sharsh different.

14. (tie) Bronson Ramos, Mililani >> Pupule rating: 88

∆∆ @ #7 Kahuku Sept 27 rec 4-38
∆∆ Total rec 19-322, 3 TD; 16.9 YPR; 64.4 YPG
Extra point: With RB Randy Neverson battling injury and RB Ikaika Piceno carrying a dual load (as a rusher and pass catcher), the Mules could use another breakaway threat.

14. (tie) Bryson Ventura, Mililani >> Pupule rating: 88
∆∆ vs #3 Saint Louis Aug 16 DNP?
∆∆ vs Kailua Aug 23 rec 1-1
∆∆ @ #10 Kapolei Aug 30 rec 6-41, TD (25)

14. (tie) Isain Wong, Nanakuli >> Pupule rating: 88

∆∆ vs Anuenue Sept 19 DNP?
∆∆ vs Pearl City Sept 26 rec 6-62
∆∆ Total 17-256, 2 TD; 15.1 YPR
Extra point: Another solid night on the job for Wong, who led the Golden Hawks in receptions and receiving yardage in a comeback win over Pearl City.

Extra point: The beauty of Ron Lee’s system is that in-team competition is always tough. Iron sharpens iron. That also means that some talented people won’t get as many snaps.

SUMMARY
The function and design of so many offenses now is to spread the field, take what the defenses give. Of course, this is easier said than done, but I’m very certain that we haven’t seen this kind of breadth when it comes to contributing, significant pass catchers. The days of the two-receiver playbook are long gone, and though I kind of miss those beautiful wishbone pitchouts from J.C. Watts to Billy Sims during Oklahoma’s heyday, the pitchout has been replaced by the bubble screen and slant route. Receivers who can make the reads are high school football nerds, in a sense. And it’s cool to be a nerd.
