All-L.A. City Section (CalHiSports)

First Team
OL — Alex Manu (Birmingham, Van Nuys) 6-1, 280, Sr.
He developed into an overpowering run blocker last season for a 9-3 team and fits best on this team as a tackle, although he spends most of his time at right guard. Manu overpowers defenders with a good motor and is also an excellent seal blocker. Manu is a returning all-L.A. City Division I choice on defense, where he racked up 23 total tackles and was named West Valley Defensive Lineman of the Year.
NG — David Lemoto (Canoga Park) 6-1, 270, Sr.
One of the state’s top 25 defensive line prospects, Lemoto has already picked up offers from Wyoming and New Mexico. If he starts strong in his senior season, look for more offers to roll in. He was selected first team all-Los Angeles City Section Division II defense as a junior and anchors the middle on this team.

DE — Manu Enesi (Carson) 6-0, 235, Jr.
An all-state sophomore honorable mention for the Colts last season, Enesi has grown an inch and gained 20 pounds since his sophomore season. He projects as a college outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, but Enesi does most of his damage for the Colts at end in a 4-3 scheme. Since this team also employs a 3-4, he fits best for this honors’ team at his most comfortable position. Enesi was the only sophomore position player named to the first or second all-Los Angeles City Section team in 2012.

LB — Manoah Pearson (Carson) 6-1, 220, Sr.
A cinch pick for this team as the only Cal-Hi Sports first team all-state underclass pick from the L.A. City, Pearson is one of the most versatile players in the section. He also has the ability to play inside or outside linebacker, defensive end or fullback. His leadership will be key for a Colts’ program with its third coach in three years with the talent to beat Narbonne (which has beaten Carson four times the past two seasons) for the Marine League crown. As a junior, he was in on 147 tackles, one interception and returned a fumble for a touchdown.

Second Team
DT — Shalom Tupua (Carson) 6-0, 280, Sr.
