Hunter’s big night set Hawaii record

The Maui News

King Kekaulike High School’s Trey Hunter broke a state record for single-game receiving yards when he hauled in 10 passes for 342 yards on Saturday in a 41-20 loss to Maui High.

Although he was not positive of what the previous state record was, Hunter’s mark is the new state record, according to state high school football historian Stacy Kaneshiro of scoringlive.com.

Kaneshiro believes the previous mark was 313 yards by Ty-Noah Williams of Kapolei in a game vs. Castle in 2015.

“But 342 is safe to say is the record,” Kaneshiro said in an email to The Maui News.

Hunter had receiving touchdowns of 96, 22 and 51 yards in the game, his final touchdown turning out to be the record-breaker, giving him 330 yards at the time. He had seven catches for 230 yards in the second half.

Hunter, a junior, also had 10 rushes for 21 yards, punted twice for an average of 35.5 yards, picked off two passes on defense, and had three returns for 42 yards in the game.

In three games this season, Hunter has scored seven of Na Alii’s eight touchdowns, six receiving and one on a kickoff return.
