SJ Mercury News Football Team

Defensive Player of the Year: Vita Vea

First Team
Class: Senior. Height: 6-5. Weight: 300.
Vea, so mobile for his size that Milpitas put him at middle linebacker and running back, averaged nearly 10 tackles per game and had eight sacks. The SCVAL De Anza Division's defensive MVP also averaged 12.3 yards per carry and scored 11 touchdowns.

Second Team

Offensive lineman: Benji Palu, Burlingame, Sr.
Selected to the PAL Bay Division's first team, the 6-0, 270-pound Palu helped Burlingame qualify for the CCS playoffs.  
Linebacker: Peter Tuipulotu, Serra, Sr.
The first-team All-WCAL selection led the Padres with 70 solo tackles and had a fumble recovery against Bellarmine.
