By Paul Honda on September 9, 2011

(Here’s an extended version of this morning’s preview of the Farrington-Kailua game. I wrote a little too long for the print version, but here’s the story with extras.) For the team in maroon, it’s all about poundage at the line of scrimmage. Farrington is off to a scintillating start and Tyler Taumua is having one of the best junior seasons of any running back in recent memory. For the team in blue, things just might be turning around. When the […]
