Prep Game Of The Week – 9/24/14
FARRINGTON vs. MILILANI
SEPT. 27 @ 7 P.M.
@ MILILANI HIGH SCHOOL
One word describes the Mililani Trojan football team this year, and that word is DOMINANT! They’ve been so good that I wonder if their starters have ever needed to finish a game. Junior QB McKenzie Milton looks like the next Marcus Mariota, and Vavae Malepeai reminds me of former UH great Hekoti Fakava. The Trojans also have a group of quality receivers, including Kalakaua Timoteo and Kainoa Wilson. The Trojans have a great offensive line and will give five-star defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko the most resistance he’s had this year. Fehoko is one of the best in the country, and I’ll take him one-on-one over anybody, but this entire Mililani line is big and can move. This will be an all-out physical football game. Both teams are warriors, but this is Mililani’s year. Trojans 28, Govs 17.
Mililani will be the favorite to win, and the Trojans have been very impressive. But so has Farrington. The Govs haven’t missed a beat this season. And while it will be hard to stop Mililani’s offense, I think Farrington can slow it down. Breiden Fehoko already has committed to play at Texas Tech next year. Fehoko is strong at stopping the run, and he has lateral speed to boot — enough to stop some of Mililani’s outside guys. I feel the Farrington offense will be the difference in this game. Ranan Mamiya, a St. Francis transfer, is the best running back in the state this season. He is too strong for the Mililani defense to stop or slow down, and Farrington’s offensive line is bigger than UH’s line. I see a high-scoring game, with Farrington winning because they’ll have the ball last to eke out a 35-31 win.
