Hilo High School has appointed Lave Suiaunoa as its next head football coach, according to its Instagram page.
Suiaunoa was formerly a defensive assistant on Hilo’s staff. Former head coach Kaeo Drummondo stepped down to take an assistant position at Kamehameha.
Hilo is the defending HHSAA Division I champion after a memorable 20-17 win over ‘Iolani in the 2019 championship game, which ended on Keanu Keolanui’s 55-yard field goal as time expired. The Vikings went 14-0 in 2019.
