High School Long Kicks - Hawaii

Our series exploring the longest field goals at the high school level in each state continues with Hawaii.
  •  57 Christian Daog, Hilo High vs. Kamehameha, 2009
"Hilo's Christian Daog caused quite a stir a couple of weeks ago when he drilled a 57-yard field goal against Kamehameha. It was the only scoring of the game in the Vikings' 44-3 loss, but that kick is believed to be the longest field goal in Hawaii high school history. Daog, a junior, is a part-time quarterback and is a soccer player, too. 'That 57-yard one, that was a shot, a low kick,' Hilo athletic director Leroy Simms said. 'It just cleared the crossbar'." - Star Bulletin
  • 57 Naia Graham, Kailua High vs. Kaimuki, September 20, 2013
"Naia Graham's favorite sport is soccer. And it should be for the Kailua High junior. He led the Surfriders soccer team with 10 goals last season and was named to the O'ahu Interscholastic Association East all-star team. But football is giving him options, especially after Saturday night. That's when he drilled a 57-yard field goal in Kailua's 52-26 win against Kaimuki. That tied a state record set in 2009 by Hilo's Christian Daog against Kamehameha at Kunuiakea Stadium. 'It feels overwhelming, actually,' he said of the record kick. 'I'm really overjoyed.' His kick was with the wind and likely would've cleared at least 60 yards. He didn't use a tee, which is allowable in high school football. In practice a few weeks earlier, he nailed one from 61 yards, he said. 'I enjoy playing soccer more than football," Graham said. "This is my second year playing (football) and I'm starting to really enjoy it, but I think my passion is soccer. But if football provides more money and stuff, as far as scholarships, yeah (I'll play football)'." - Scoring Live
  • 52 Alex Brost, Hawaii Preparatory Academy vs. Kea'au, September 5, 2015
"Senior kicker Alex Brost booted two field goals just over 30 seconds apart to close out the first half, including a 52-yarder as time expired that had room to spare. 'That was probably the longest field goal I have seen on this field,' Hayslip said. 'Fun way to end the half'." - West Hawaii Today
