Dallas Morning News Newcomer of the Year

Ilaiu Moeakiola, Euless Trinity, DB, Soph.

Ht., Wt.: 6-0, 185

About Moeakiola: In his first varsity season, the safety started the last 14 games. His stellar play kept him in the lineup as he wreaked havoc from sideline to sideline. Moeakiola finished with 108 tackles, 15 pass breakups, one interception and one forced fumble. In Trinity's state title win, he had 10 tackles. Moeakiola's biggest play of the season, however, came in Trinity's state semifinal victory over Round Rock Stony Point. He tipped away a pass over the middle to clinch the Trojans' win.

What's next? Moeakiola will be one of four returning starters on defense for Trinity next season. His future is bright, and scholarship offers should begin to pour in next year.
