All-Utah Valley Football

Nine Polynesians were selected to the Deseret News' All-Utah Valley Football Team.

MICHAEL ALISA, LB, Timpview: A talented player on both sides. Had four interceptions and three sacks. As a running back, scored six TDs for the T-Birds.

TUI CRICHTON, OL, Timpview: There's good reason colleges are after this 6-foot-4 280-pound junior. He has good fundamentals, has excellent feet and is very quick for a big guy.

BRONSON KAUFUSI, DL, Timpview: A ferocious force on the D-line with 57 tackles, eight sacks and one interception — which he returned for a touchdown.

VILIAMI HALISIMA, DL, Timpview: A quick defender who was a challenge to block. Teams ran away from him, but he still finished with 39 tackles and three sacks.

DOMINIQUE MOE, LB, Timpview: The main force on Timpview's defense. Very fast at chasing down runners and plugging holes. Had a team-high 83 tackles and six sacks.

DALLIN NAULU, WR, Spanish Fork: One of the quickest and more reliable receivers in the valley, which made the Dons' quick-strike passing game very effective. Had 72 catches and seven TD receptions.

XAVIER SU'A FILO, OL, Timpview: Some consider this 6-foot-4 270-pound junior to be the top lineman in the state, or at least he will be by next season. Excellent run and pass blocker.

, OL, Timpview: Not only the strongest lineman in the valley, but possibly the best in fundamentals. Timpview's runners had huge holes to run through behind him.

LEROY UNGA, RB, Payson: The Lions power back rushed for 1,255 yards and nine TDs. His rushing average was nearly six yards per carry. Also played a vital role on Payson's defense.
