Prep Tracker, Week 5: Kahuku, Bingham, and East High Schools make some national noise

prep_trackerIt was an exciting week as Sekope Lutu Latu and the Kahuku Red Raiders, as they faced off against No. 1 ranked Bishop Gorman, with BYU recruit Jacob Isaia.  The Gaels from Vegas came out on top, winning 35-7.  In another national game Apu Ika and the East High Leopards defeated California powerhouse De La Salle on the road, 23-21.  The win was doubly impressive as De La Salle has only lost 15 games in the last 27 years.  Both East and Bingham High Schools are getting significant national attention right now.

There were also several individual performances of note among the Cougar committed.  At least four Cougars got on the scoreboard this weekend, including: Donovan Hanna (one TD reception), Jackson McChesney (one rushing TD), Ryan Rehkow (one field goal), and Brandon Kaho (one rushing TD, one passing TD).  Tyler Manoa had his second sack of the season.   Game summaries for each of the commits are listed below.
