Pahoa High football changes the game

  • Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Pahoa quarterback Donivan Lynch runs the ball through an opening during a scrimmage against St. Louis High School from Oahu on Saturday.

  • Pahoa running back Noah Kaawaloa runs the ball down the field during a scrimmage against St. Louis High School from Oahu on Saturday.

  • Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Pahoa defensive lineman Mason Tai begins to tackle St. Louis High School slotback Titan Lacade during a scrimmage on Saturday.
