2008 All East-Bay Football Team

First Team Offense/Defense
Sosaia Tauaho
SCHOOL: Fremont
YEAR: Senior
POSITION: Offensive line
THE STAT LINE: Tauaho was a captain and helped anchor one of the biggest and most effective lines in the East Bay. The Tigers averaged nearly 250 rushing yards per game and had three backs finish in the top five in the Oakland Athletic League in rushing. The line play from Tauaho and others was a big reason Fremont turned around its 1-9 season from 2007 to finish 9-3, advancing to the OAL's Silver Bowl for the first time since 2000.

Paul Piukala
SCHOOL: Castlemont
YEAR: Senior
POSITION: Defensive line
THE STAT LINE: Piukala was a difference maker for the Knights, who finished with the top-ranked defense in the East Bay for the second straight season. The first-team Oakland Athletic League All-City selection had 65 tackles from his defensive tackle position and recorded 12 sacks. A captain for the Knights, he led the way as they shut out Fremont 13-0 to give Castlemont its first Silver Bowl title.

Second Team Offense/Defense

DL Ricky Aliifua San Leandro Sr. 6-2/250
