The Farrington High School football team finished out the regular season with a 6-2 record, and are ranked 6th in the state polls.
But Friday the 2nd season begins and one loss can spell the end.
Even though, the Governors feel prepared for the postseason.
The coach wears the team's motto on his back everyday. And we mean that literally.
"Whatever it takes means, whatever it takes to achieve our goals, whatever it takes for the team and no individual goals will overtake the team goals," said Governor head coach Randall Okimoto.
The Governors goals are two fold. One play with passion. And two be humble. They believe if they do those two things, everything else will fall into place.
"We need to be together as one team, as a family, play with passion and take it all the way," said Governor wide receiver Drake Miller.
Friday night Farrington takes on Kapolei in the quarterfinals of the OIA Red playoffs. It's a matchup the Governors are familiar with.
Last year, they ended Kapolei's season.
"This year I guess they're looking back for revenge but we're ready this year, our defense is one of the best defense's, and we're hungry," said Governor linebacker Sila Tonga.
Coach Okimoto knows both teams have different players this time around, but he's confident if his team plays their game and focus on what they can control, the results will take care of themselves.
"The teams are very competitive, it's not going to be an easy road, but it will be exciting because our guys worked hard," said Coach Okimoto.
Kick off for the game is at 7:30 p.m. and will be played at Roosevelt High School.
