ESPN2 will feature Kahuku football
Kahuku High School's state championship football program will be the subject of ESPN2's documentary show "Timeless," at 7 p.m., Hawai'i time, tomorrow.
A crew from the all-sports cable network spent over a week on O'ahu last fall chronicling the Red Raiders' march to their fourth state title in the past six seasons. They filmed Kahuku's practices, its state semifinal victory over Wai'anae, the state championship win over Punahou and spent Thanksgiving Day at some of the players' homes.
On its Web site, ESPN describes "Timeless" as a 30-minute show that "highlight(s) towns and communities with unique sports stories all their own."
In November of 2004, a picture of Kahuku's football team performing its traditional "haka" dance and chant appeared on the cover of USA Today, along with a feature story about Hawai'i high school football.
