Torres believes in special teams

It wasn't a totally happy night for the Kahuku football team when the Red Raiders beat Roosevelt last Friday. Defensive lineman Kona Schwenke was ejected after an incident away from the ball during a kickoff. Some fans wondered why a starter was playing on special teams.

“;We treat special teams like offense and defense,”; Torres said. “;You have to put importance on it. Last year we gave up too much yardage on special teams.

“;Against Mililani, Taz (Dalaunte Stevenson) almost scored on us twice. We had to clean it up.”;

Second-ranked Kahuku has a bye this week, as does No. 1 Saint Louis.
