CalHISports preseason team includes two Samoans from Orange Lutheran
DT -- Kapono Asuega (Lutheran, Orange) 6-1, 270 Sr.
Another repeat selection, Asuega came on late in his sophomore season as a key clog in the Lancers' drive to a CIF Div. II state title. He followed up with a solid junior campaign as he finished the season with 32 tackles and four sacks. A second team all-Trinity League and second team all-state underclass selection, Asuega doesn't have the prototypical body of a major college defensive tackle, but there is no questioning his ability
LB/RB -- Jeremiah Pemasa (Lutheran, Orange) 5-9, 200 Sr.
Pemasa takes over this multi-purpose spot from his brother Ricky. Ricky was the team's leading rusher last season and Jeremiah could take a bigger role on offense now that Tyson Seneca and his brother have graduated. At linebacker is where Jeremiah makes the biggest impact, racking up 40 solo tackles, including four for a loss, 28 assists, four sacks, two caused fumbles, one fumble recovery and three pass deflections. Pemasa was a second team all-Trinity League choice and is a prime all-CIFSS Pac-Five candidate this season.
