Defending BIIF champion Hilo makes its first appearance in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Football Top 10 released today.
The Vikings, who are No. 10, had the week off following a 62-35 victory over ‘Iolani to open their season nine days ago. Running back Kahale Huddleston had 244 rushing yards and four touchdowns on only 13 carries and returned kickoffs 87 and 99 yards for touchdowns in the win.
Dropping out of this week’s rankings is Waianae, which fell to 0-3 for the first time since 2011 after losing 37-0 to No. 2 Kahuku. The Seariders are unranked for the first time since Week 2 of last season.
With Farrington falling out of the rankings last week, this marks the first poll since the 2005 Honolulu Star-Bulletin preseason top 10 that both the Governors and Seariders are unranked.
Saint Louis held on to the top spot as the unanimous No. 1 team, followed by the Red Raiders, who were picked second on eight of the 10 ballots and third on the other two.
Punahou remained No. 3 by a single vote over No. 4 Mililani, which scored an impressive 47-0 victory over Leilehua on Friday. The Trojans were picked second on one ballot and third on three ballots.
No. 5 Kapolei, No. 6 Kamehameha and No. 7 Campbell all remained in the same spots with Kailua jumping to No. 8 and Lahainaluna moving to No. 9.
The Surfriders were also ranked No. 8 after Week 3 last season.
Also receiving votes this week: Waianae (8), Kapaa (5), Farrington (4) and St. Francis (2).
