Yes, yes, it’s that time again ladies and gentlemen, Governors and non-Govs. It’s the Tyler Taumua statistical update, courtesy of the No. 1-ranked Farrington Governors and the pummelling “Bamboolas.”
Taumua gained 100 rushing yards on 24 carries against then-No. 1 Kahuku on Saturday night. At this rate, the junior running back will finish a full, 14-game season — provided the Govs reach the final of the state tournament — with 2,504 yards and 24 touchdowns.
The single-season record is believed to be held by Damien’s Kama Bailey, who rushed for 2,098 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2007. Other high marks include Mosi Tatupu of Punahou (2,025 yards) and Joe Igber of ‘Iolani (2,017 yards).
