Hall of Fame: Donny Utu (1995)

Donny Utu’s combination of speed, power and vision made him a force on the football field and basketball court, earning him three varsity letters in each sport.

Utu was a star wide receiver, setting multiple school and state receiving records. As a senior, he set the ILH single-season mark for most touchdowns with 15, beating his previous record of 12 set in his junior year. He also finished his career with ILH records for receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns.

His school record of 240 receiving yards in a game against Damien Memorial School stood for 21 years until it was broken in 2014. Utu’s accomplishments led to his induction into the Nissan State of Hawaiʻi Hall of Fame in 1995.

His basketball honors include being named to the All-ILH team in 1993, and the Hawaiʻi Select All-Star Team in 1993 and 1994.

After graduating from Punahou, Utu played football at University of Utah. He was named Offensive Player of the Game when the Utes faced Brigham Young University in the Mountain West Championship game.
