Quarterback McKenzie Milton, who led Mililani High to the state football championship two weeks ago, told the Star-Advertiser he has accepted a football scholarship offer from the University of Hawaii.

Milton, who is a junior, is the first member of the Warriors’ 2016 class.

Milton said he has been a lifetime UH football fan.

"All the way from Timmy Chang, Colt Brennan, Bryant Moniz, Davone Bess," Milton said.

Of his decision, he said: "It’s home, and it’s close to family and friends. I’d really like to be able to help turn the program around. I think coach (Norm) Chow is a great coach and I’d like to learn a lot from him. I think he can teach me a lot. He’s been there, and he’s done that. I look forward to the opportunity they’ve given me."

Milton was 29 of 47 for 421 yards and seven touchdowns in a 53-45 victory over Punahou in the title game.
