All Metro (St Louis) First Team Niko Mafuli

St Louis High School's (Missouri) Niko Mafuli was selected First Team All Metro by the St Louis Dispatch. Mafuli will attend Northwestern next fall.

Niko Mafuli
St. Louis U. High — Vitals: 6-4, 305, sr.
Notes: A second-team All-Metro selection as a junior, Mafuli came back bigger and stronger and was arguably the area's top offensive lineman in 2006. Mafuli excelled at right tackle, using his strength and nimble feet to open running lanes and protect SLUH's quarterbacks. Only a few starters were back from last year's 8-2 team, but the Junior Billikens' offense racked up 2,980 total yards (1,770 rushing, 1,210 passing) and went 7-4.
College: Committed to Northwestern

Three other Samoans from the Independence (MO) area were selected for post-season accolades by The Examiner

Honorable Mention
