Monday, January 15, 2007 All State Team

First Team All State
OL – Fred Koloto (Palo Alto) 6-4, 270, Sr.

An inspirational leader for a team that reached the CIF Div. II state championship game, Koloto is a two-time honors selection by the San Jose Mercury-News. He's been fast enough to get on the outside and lead sweeps and also was a strong defender for the Vikings. Koloto has taken at least one recruiting trip to Washington and appears to be Pac-10 bound.

DL – Christian Tupou (Grant, Sacramento) 6-3, 275, Sr.
This nose guard was a key factor in 13-0 Grant's defensive success this season. Besides a 3.8 GPA off the field, on the field Christian accounted for a total of 92 tackles to go along with five sacks on the season. His best single game outing came against Burbank of Sacramento as he accounted for 15 tackles along with a sack. In the 13-game season, Grant's defense only allowed 67 points and managed to tally six shutouts. Tupou has been named the Sacramento Bee's Defensive Player of the Year. His real strength was taking on two or three offensive linemen and plugging up the middle so that the rest of the team's defense could make plays.
