Sophomore Wayne Taulapapa is atop the depth chart at tailback for UVA heading into the Cavaliers’ season opener at Pitt. The 5’9”, 210-pounder had come out of spring as the #1 tailback, and through the summer proved himself to be the “most trustworthy and the most versatile” of the available options, coach Bronco Mendenhall said Monday. “Others will be capable and will play and the production might shift in the game to where we’re wondering how did that just happen. It’s very

Kaonohi Kaniho (7) scored on an interception return to cap the Red Raiders’ third quarter scoring. CJ Caraang | SL This one felt like a barnburner through the first half of play. Then the floodgates opened. Kahuku broke open a scoreless game at the half for a 32-0 win over visiting Waianae in an OIA Open game at Carleton E. Weimer Field Saturday night. It was a bounce back win for the Red Raiders (2-1 overall, 1-1 league), who lost to Mililani by the same score eight days pri
Kahuku running back Zealand Matagi (26) runs the ball past Waianae defensive back Samson Cook (18) on Saturday. Both teams put in a few tricky wrinkles, but after a scoreless first half it was obvious that the team deciding to commit to old-school, hard-charging running was going to prevail. This looked like the 1970s. Waianae at No. 5 Kahuku on the North Shore. Real grass. And then, the avalanche came. It was the Red Raiders who decided to grind it and grind it and grind it
The day Jarrett Kaniho found out he was going to be a grandfather was the very definition of bittersweet.
Yes, he was excited, but he also thought it wouldn’t be a phone call he would take for quite a while. Then last summer, his wife Misty told him what their middle child Kaonohi Kaniho had told her.
Ahead of his junior year at Kahuku High on Oahu’s North Shore, Kaonohi found out his girlfriend, Raita Laufiso, was pregnant with their child.
“The first reaction was a li

No. 5 Kahuku is known for a bruising running game, but it hasn’t always been there this season. No worries now. It showed up in a huge way in the second half of Saturday night’s 32-0 victory over Waianae at Carleton Weimer Field. The offensive line surge came at the right time. The OIA rivals were in a 0-

Alohi Gilman and Bradlee Anae are again making Red Raider history! This time, however, their names are appearing in several Preseason All-America teams as chosen by several media outlets. Bradlee was named to the 2nd team on three of the All-America teams. The three outlets are Sports Illustrated, USA Today, and Athlon, respectively. Alohi Gilman was blessed to be named on five All-America teams. Four of the five outlets named Alohi to their 2nd team. Those four are the Assoc
The first tweet came from Notre Dame graduate assistant Keli’i Moanauli Kekuewa.
Kekuewa, who assists Irish defensive line coach Mike Elston, shared a photo of the Notre Dame football team with a sign that read “Ku Kia’i Mauna.”

On a night when the potent Mililani offense mustered just 128 total yards, it was defense and special teams that made the mission possible. Brendyn Agbayani fired two touchdown passes and No. 3 Mililani limited No. 4 Kahuku to 93 total yards in a 32-0 win on Friday night at John Kauinana Stadium. It was a

Greg Yamamoto | SL MILILANI — Unlike most two-way threats in football, Mililani linebacker Wynden Hoohuli does not play offense.
