Li‘ili‘i, Kauwalu best of West

Advertiser Staff

Even an injured Lofa Li'ili'i proved to be more than a handful for opposing defenses in the O'ahu Interscholastic Association's West Division this season.

Meanwhile, George Kauwalu was a menace for every opposing offense.

Li'ili'i, an 'Aiea receiver, was named OIA West Offensive Player of the Year and Kauwalu, a Wai'anae linebacker, was named Defensive Player of the Year in a recent vote of division coaches.

Li'ili'i was slowed by a high ankle sprain suffered early in the season, but still ended up with 43 catches for 536 yards (12.5 ypc) and four touchdowns. He also carried the ball 41 times for 170 yards, and returned a punt 85 yards for a TD against Leilehua.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound senior also served as an effective decoy, drawing defenders his way to open up routes for teammates Alan Fonoti (44 catches, 552 yards, 6 TDs), James Buchanan (34-368, 3 TDs) and Daniel Li'ili'i (32-304, 2 TDs).

"The other coaches thought Lofa was always a threat, so they were prepared to cover him," said Wendell Say, who completed his 15th season as 'Aiea's head coach. "I think he's probably the best receiver we ever had."

Kauwalu, a 6-foot, 210-pound senior, also will go down as one of the all-time greats from his school. His ball-hawking quickness and punishing hits made an impression on almost every opposing offense the past two years.

"Not only can he hit, but he can cover (receivers), too," Say said. "He's one of the best linebackers I've seen in a long time."

Kauwalu's play on defense helped the Seariders clinch the West Division championship with a week to spare.

'Aiea and Wai'anae led the West with five players each named to the all-star first team. Li'ili'i is joined by fellow Na Ali'i receiver Fonoti, utility player Daniel Li'ili'i, offensive lineman Mako Malepeai and linebacker Mana Ohia.

Kauwalu is joined by Seariders offensive linemen William Duseigneur and Alex Tupulua, defensive lineman Fred Ellis and defensive back Preston Ayala.

Leilehua was represented by four players, Kapolei and Radford each placed three and Mililani had two on the first team.

Two players — Kapolei's Kamuela Foki and Radford's Kyle Blair — were selected at two positions. Foki made it as a running back and defensive back. Blair was picked as a receiver and a defensive utility player.

Lofa Li'ili'i, Kauwalu, Malepeai, Ohia, Ayala and Mililani's Matt Hunt are repeat first-team selections.

Wai'anae's Danny Matsumoto was named Coach of the Year.
