Hilo senior and Hawaii commit Kilohana Haasenritter played at his future home for the first time on Friday night during the HHSAA Division I state championship game against Iolani.
In his first-ever game at Aloha Stadium, Haasenritter ran the ball twice, including a 6-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter.
Primarily a receiver, Haasenritter also caught the ball six times for 73 yards as the Vikings took the title in a dramatic 20-17 win after Keanu Keolanui’s 55-yard field goal as time expired. He also lined up at defensive back on defense, registering a tackle.
“It was actually my first time playing a game in here,” Haasenritter said, who also took home the Cover2 Herman Wedemeyer Award for top two-way player this season. “It felt great, and I can’t wait to have my future here, too.”
Haasenritter played his first prep game at Aloha Stadium on Friday, but it won’t be his last.
After the game, Rich Miano extended a 2020 Polynesian Bowl invite to Haasenritter, where he’ll get an opportunity to compete against the best high school football players the nation has to offer.
