Thomas Molesi San Diego Section Player of the Year

Oceanside's Thomas Molesi was selected San Diego Section Defensive Player of the Year by the San Diego Union Tribune.

Defensively, Oceanside’s Thomas Molesi led the Pirates to their sixth straight section title and second State Championship Bowl victory in three seasons.

When Oceanside needed Molesi toward the end of the Pirates’ 25-19 bowl victory over San Jose Bellarmine Prep, the senior was standing tall, harassing the quarterback.

No big deal except he had returned after slowly limping off the field with an injury in the first quarter.

“You couldn’t keep me out of there,” said Molesi, a 6-2, 280-pound two-way lineman who will attend Oregon State.

Molesi was one of six players who had been starters as sophomores when the Pirates won their first bowl game in 2007. He knew how important the moment was.

Molesi anchored a defensive line that allowed just 116 points in 14 games in helping extend Oceanside’s ’ unbeaten streak to a state-best 39 games.
