The delayed opening weekend of the Hawaii High School Football schedule kicked-off this weekend where reigning OIA champion and state runner-up Mililani (2-0), who was also credited with a forfeit win over McKinley Saturday, arguably made the biggest statement with a 63-47 victory over Saint Louis (0-1) Saturday night.
In the win, Junior Quarterback McKenzie Milton produced 367 yards passing with 7 total touchdowns (4 passing, 3 rushing) to go with 204 yards rushing.
A performance that no doubt brought much joy and a little stress to Trojans Head Coach Rod York.
“We definitely want him to use his feet but more so we want him to pass the ball when we need to pass the ball. I know everybody wants to be a running quarterback sometimes but then again you know, that’s how (Colin) Kaepernick became Kaepernick is Alex Smith got injured, so we don’t want our QB injured. We want him throwing the ball when we need him to throw the ball, but he’s an intelligent guy, he knows what to do and when to do it, at the same time as coaches we’re not going to put handcuffs on a player maker so I’m going to let him do his thing and anything we do will depend on the five guys up front.” said, York.
Mililani will next face Kailua (0-1) next Saturday.
