Lauina Falatea, Sione "Johnny" Mahe, and Uluamu Niutupuivaha from our very own Kahuku Rugbly club have been selected to the USA Men's Extended Squad of 16 players. This is the initial team that is gearing up for the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games being held in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They will make a final cut to trim the roster down to 12 before heading to camp and Argentina. Good luck to these 3 young men as they vie to make that final roster cut! See the 16 man roster be
Benson with these absolute studs - from left to right Enokk Vimahi, Tausili Fiatoa, & Tuia Tupuola Young and not so young Red Raiders alike enjoyed the 2018 Red Raider in Training clinic put on by our 2018 Kahuku Red Raider Varsity Football Team last Saturday. It was exhilarating to see our current Red Raiders working with, instructing, and cheering on our future Red Raiders. The future is bright in Red Raider country! And this year's Red Raiders don't look to shabby either .

Here is the excerpt: "A big piece to that success is Lawrence, who will likely dra
Waipahu defenders ganged up on a Kahuku player to make a tackle for loss during Friday's scrimmage. Photo by Steven Erler/Special to the Star-Advertiser. Wesley Alo-Maiava had a spectacular first play Friday. The Kahuku running back took it to the house — an 80-yard run — on the first play of the Red Raiders’ scrimmage against Waipahu. After finding the end zone, he immediately lifted his hands toward the Waipahu bench and gave a wave. “That was to all the Waipahu kids,” Alo-
Without meaning to, Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly played with the emotions of the Irish Nation as it pertained to its anticipation of Alohi Gilman being inserted into the Notre Dame defense for the 2018 season.
“He has a great combination of cover skills at the safety position,” Kelly said last December when asked about Gilman, “and the ability to come down and be a sure tackler.”
Gilman had to sit out the 2017 season following his transfer from Navy and Kelly’s a

As a Kahuku High senior, Kekoa Sasaoka was named to the Star-Advertiser’s 2015 All-State first team as a punter and second team as a kicker. He said he will compete at kicker for the Warriors. A former All-State player is entering the University of Hawaii football team’s kicking competition.
Kekoa Sasaoka, who played for Snow College (Ephraim, Utah) last year, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser he is joining the Rainbow Warriors on Thursday, the first day
Nalu Emerson is one of the hardest hitting defensive backs out West and he's opened some eyes in coverage drills at several events this offseason. The three-star safety from Kahuku, Hawaii, holds three scholarship offers and is certainly a candidate to see his stock rise as a senior this year as a key part of one of the top contenders on the island. Hawaii, Navy and UNLV are the programs on the list heading into the season but a few more have the 6-foot-1, 190-pound defender
With health as priority, Figueroa to run defense Kammerer KAHULUI — James Kammerer has stepped in to be the head coach for Maui High School football on an interim basis for the 2018 season after Rodney Figueroa dialed back his role with the team due to “medical reasons.” Figueroa, the Maui Interscholastic League Coach of the Year last season after leading the Sabers to their second MIL Division I title in the last 17 years, will serve as the defensive coordinator this season.
(Photo: James Durrant, UteZone, 247Sports) Each summer, the UteZone staff votes to rank the most significant players on the Utah football team for the coming season. The criteria for voting was largely based on two factors: performance in the 2017 season, performance in 2018 spring football, and projected performance this fall. All nine UteZone staff members voted for 35 players. Once the votes were tabulated, a weighted point system was used to determine the leaders. For the
Associated Press Ken Niumatalolo The notion of addressing a ballroom full of Department of Education administrators and principals about leadership sometimes strikes Ken Niumatalolo as so ironic as to be amusing. “I just remember this hot-headed, cocky junior varsity basketball player (at Radford High) who didn’t want to run the plays and just wanted to shoot the ball,” said the Naval Academy football coach, who will speak before the group Thursday at the Hawaii Convention Ce
Kahuku (Hawaii) offensive tackle Enokk Vimahi had a solid performance throughout the week at The Opening Finals in Frisco, Texas. The top offensive lineman in Hawaii, Vimahi played both guard and tackle during the week and he looked comfortable at both spots. He's a natural tackle, with length and athleticism to play out there, but he has the strength to play inside and handle defensive linemen and his versatility was a strength for him all week. Vimahi named his top eight on
