    awwwrite! Once again I know I been bagging on the ILH the entire season but the season is done and in the sports world we preach to leave everything on the field. Three teams walked away with Titles and it was all well deserved. Kahuku didnt win a title but that doesnt mean im salty because regardless of a St. Louis win or a Kahuku win, in the end the whole State of Hawaii wins.

    Several random visitors from the mainland that attended the title game tweeted, facebooked or commented to others that it was the greatest High school game environment they have ever seen.

    I think I will always be irked and will continue to voice my opinion about how I feel the OIA is being mis-treated or atleast forgotten about, not for my own pleasure but on behalf of our OIA kids. Whether people agree with me or not is not my problem but at the very least I hope my little voice has made people think.

    Aloha! braddahs and sistahs! great season, work hard all you athletes of Hawaii and comeback hard next year….Congratulations Cal, Coaches and the STL Players on the win

    yes, anywaays. how noble you are, oh Great Defender of Public School Kids and fearless message board smack talk poster. If that’s how you justify going off the deep end and accusing the entire HHSAA organization along with chris chun of conspiring specifically against kahuku athletes, and talking trash about other teams and other people who post here, then okay.

    Whatever floats your boat.

    He was an inspiration for us Red Raiders and such a great role model. I was fortunate to attend a football camp and was in awe of his presence the entire time lol.. He respected all players no matter what school they attended and his love for football was shown in his work. Truly a Legend!!

    Stay humble fellow Red Raiders, you win some you lose some.. Respect!!
