Top Performers Flashback: Austin Ewing


» ORIGINAL STORY: Konawaena's Ewing, Maryknoll's Gabriel earn weekly honors

Ewing, a 6-foot-1, 165-pound junior, passed for a career-high 443 yards and four touchdowns despite working behind a patchwork offensive line that was without both starting guards on a soggy evening at Julian T. Yates Field.

After a scoreless first quarter, Ewing tossed a pair of touchdown passes in the second. He connected with Kamakana Ching for an 82-yard score and Jeremiah Casuga-Llanes on a 5-yarder.

The Warriors cut the Wildcats' lead to 19-12 late in the third quarter, but Ewing threw two more scoring strikes — a 10 yards to Austin Aukai and a 56-yard shovel to Micah Laban — sandwiched around a safety by the defense to pull away.

Austin was named All-Hawaii Division II Offensive Player of the Year in 2016 and followed that up with a second POY nod in 2017. He led all D2 passers in completions, attempts, yards and touchdowns as a junior, and ranked no lower than third in those categories as a senior.
