The focus switches to the Oahu Interscholastic Association's White Division this week, as Campbell (4-1) and Castle (5-0) meet Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Aloha Stadium. RB Kaleo Segovia and QB Joel Botelho highlight the Knights' balanced attack. Segovia averages 133.8 rushing yards and 2.5 touchdowns a game. He leads the OIA in rushing and scoring. Botelho has passed for 12 TDs in Castle's five league games. Campbell counters with QB Vince Lemau, who also has 12 TD passes in five games. RB Jamison Rabaino has come on strong of late. He rushed for 157 yards and 3 TDs last week against Radford.

The OIA season begins Saturday with matches at McKinley, Kaiser, Kalani, Waipahu and Waianae.


Kaiser quarterback
breaks own record

With two regular season games left to play, Kaiser QB B.J. Bernard has already broken one record and has another clearly in range. With five TD passes in a 50-31 win over Kalani on Friday, Bernard has 22 scoring tosses, breaking his own Oahu Interscholastic Association mark of 20 last season. He needs 11 completions against Pearl City and Nanakuli to break the OIA record of 139 set by Abraham Pavich (McKinley) last year. Pavich probably won't match his own record, as he has completed 48 passes and has three games left. ...
