Vei Moala Nor Cal Preps Defensive POY

Grant's defense was showered with superlatives all season as it held opponents to just over five points per game through athleticism and size. The leader of this group was junior defensive tackle Vei Moala, who had 104 tackles, 17 sacks and four fumble recoveries this season. Moala was at points dominating inside and set-up the rest of the defense to win match-ups at all levels of the defense.

The 6-foot-3, 325 pound defensive tackle helped the Pacers extend their win streak to 26 games this year before they lost to Rocklin in the SJS Division II semi-finals.

Moala, the Sacramento Bee defensive player of the year, is the first defensive tackle to win the award since Derrick Hill of McClymonds in 2005.
