Home Sweet Home: Kahuku High School


The home of the Red Raiders was established in 1897 with 36 students.

When they won their first league title in 1943, the football team was called the Ramberiers.

A donation of uniforms from Iolani in 1950 changed the school’s nickname to Red Raiders.

Since then, Kahuku has 24 OIA titles and eight state championships to its credit.

The Red Raiders are especially dominant at home with 47 straight wins.

Twenty-four former players have gone on to play in the NFL, including six during the 2005 season. That was the most alums from one high school in the league that year.

McKinley currently plays its home games at Roosevelt High School, but an under-construction upgrade could allow for home games on campus.

Other alumni include UH offensive line coach Chris Naeole, singer/songwriter Jack Johnson and reigning Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau champion John John Florence.
