VIDEO: Post-game, Saint Louis 3-peats with win over Mililani

The result was almost anticlimactic as No. 1 Saint Louis defeated second-seeded Mililani 38-17 for the Open Division title in the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA Football State Championships at Aloha Stadium on Saturday night. An air-tight defense stifled the potent Mililani offense, getting huge performances from CB Korvin Feagins (nine tackles, three interceptions, three deflections and one forced fumble) and LB Jordan Botelho (six tackles, 2.5 sacks, fumble recovery and 74-yard return for a TD).

For head coach Cal Lee, this is title No. 18, from the first Oahu Prep Bowl championship in 1983 — 14 in all — to four state crowns. That includes the last three in a row.

    Rumors circulating from some StL insider alumni that Cal considering stepping down after this win because he has proven everything. I hope he doesn’t, because StL dynasty is making football better across the state.

    It doesn’t matter who the coach is, anybody can coach a team. What matters is the belief that is instilled in the athlete by the coaches who believe their worth. Coaches need to get along as well because athletes feed off of their examples.

    If an athlete is as talented and skilled a player as he or she believes they are, they will produce, excel and succeed anywhere in this world and in life.

    So, as to not take away from their victory last night, CONGRATULATIONS to St. Louis on a well deserved win… And, CONGRATULATIONS to Mililani on a hard fought battle and not giving up.

    Nothing but love from this RR alum and mom of a Saber.

    St. Louis got to take on a top ten team from the mainland. let’s go coach Cal before even thinking to step down schedule a match up anything it takes. This team I believe was being prepared for Bishop Gormon not Narbonne (But give credit) who was the team to beat last year that beat one of our own Kahuku!!! They prepared and not to boast and brag or anything a much bigger picture but then again these are young men!!! What happened? Make sure get rock solid info then put it on social media if the team cancels to play everybody will know why!!!:) Shout out to Coach York and the Millilani Trojans they played and scored on the number 8 team in the Nation from the 808!!!:)
