Word is Kaimuki has half their team waiting to hear about their vax exemptions from DOE. DOE dragging their feet on purpose to force then to get the vax.
Iolani playing Kailua at end of month, not sure how big their line is but don't they usually have a bunch of phat asses?
Well, I realize that you might be an anti-vaxxer (and I don't mean that in a hostile or insulting tone; I respect your views), so, I want to tread carefully here. Full disclosure: I'm very much pro
-vax, so if the DOE is trying to get as many teens vaccinated as possible, well, I support that. But, I don't in any way condemn you if you disagree; we can agree to disagree. Obviously we both have at least one
thing in common: We both are hooked on high school sports.
Hilarious about Kailua High's O-lines! Yeah, Kailua High is very similar to Farrington High in that both schools almost always
have thick O-lines, almost every year. What I suspect is that Kailua High's steady diet of thick O-linemen comes mostly from Waimanalo. Waimanalo has thick
boys, man. I suspect Farrington High's steady diet of thick O-linemen comes mostly from KPT and Kam IV; those projects usually have even thicker boys than Waimanalo. But, honestly, your last sentence is hilarious.
I give Iolani credit for scheduling Kailua. Again, Kailua High usually has thick linemen, while Iolani School usually doesn't. I have no idea what Kailua's O-line looks like this
year, but I'm quite certain they'll be big enough to overpower Iolani's D-line. If Iolani's O-line is undersized, I'd like to assume
that their D-line is even smaller. Two or three years ago, Iolani's D-line was actually bigger
than their O-line, which is crazy. I guess Iolani HC Look valued speed over size on his O-line. Anyway, this
year, I'd imagine Kailua will elect to simply run the ball down Iolani's throat. That not only utilizes Kailua's size advantage on the O-line, but a run-game eats lots of clock, which keeps Iolani's potent O riding the bench longer. Though I don't care for Iolani School, it's only fair to give them credit for taking-on a school that usually has big boys in the trenches. If Iolani School deserves credit, then they should get it.
