2009 OC Varsity All-County Football Team

First Team
RB Josh Quezada 6'0, 200, Sr
The Juice is back with his second consecutive first-team All-County honors. The only thing that was able to slow Quezada was a viral infection late in the season. Once he was back to 100 percent, he posted a 268-yard, four-touchdown performance to clinch the Freeway League title. He rushed for 815 yards in four playoff games to lead the Highlanders to their third consecutive CIF title. He rushed for a season-high 300 yards in the semifinals against Cypress. He finished third in the county in rushing yards with 2,114. He scored 24 touchdowns and earned Freeway League MVP honors. He recently committed to BYU.

OL Niu Sale Los Alamitos 6'3, 295, Sr
The Griffins’ offensive line was one of the best in the county, thanks in large part to the play of Sale. As a result, his stock started to rise as several West Coast schools have expressed interest. Sale, who has been offered by Washington, earned tri-Sunset League offensive lineman of the year honors this season.

OL Roman Sapolu Edison (Huntington Beach) 6'2, 240, Sr
The unquestioned leader of not only the Chargers offensive line, but perhaps the team as well. At center, he served as an extension of the coaching staff on the field. As the Chargers wrapped up the summer’s big passing leagues, the great unknown was the Edison offensive line. With Sapolu (Oregon St.) at center, the unknown quickly became one of the team’s strengths as the Chargers soared to the top-ranked team in the county and the Pac-5 Division. Sapolu earned a share of the Sunset League offensive lineman of the year award.

DL Kirifi Taula Servite (Anaheim) 6'3, 285, Sr
He missed a couple of games because of a broken arm, but still was All-Trinity League first team for the Friars, who went 14-1 and won the CIF-Southern Section Pac-5 and CIF State Division II championships. He had a sack for an 11-yard loss against Rocklin in the state game. "There are a lot of guys out there who are big, Servite coach Troy Thomas said. "And there are a lot of guys who are pretty athletic. But for a guy his size to have that kind of speed and agility is very rare." He has scholarship offers from several schools, including UCLA.

Second Team
OL – Steven Fieeiki (Villa Park), Sr.

OL – Preston Pemasa (Orange Lutheran), Sr.
