MATA’AFA
SCOUTING REPORT: Too quick for larger linemen,
too strong for the rest. Mata‘afa was integral to
the Lunas’ defensive front, able to line up inside
and on the edge. They permitted just 31 points in
eight Maui Interscholastic League games. For the
season, Lahainaluna allowed just 80 rushing
yards (163 total offense) per game.
DID YOU KNOW: As a junior, Mata‘afa was a finalist
in the state wrestling championships at 215

PADELLO
SCOUTING REPORT: The All-State Defensive Player
of the Year was an anomaly, and an absurd one at
that. Being a smaller defensive lineman was no
problemfor Padello, who spent entire offseasons
working on his craft, running hills and jumping
rope to gain more explosiveness. The result: a
whopping 26 sacks. His playmaking ability
changed opponents’ game plans. Punahou
switched its left guard and left tackle to deal with
Padello on the edge.
DID YOU KNOW: For the past four years, Padello got
a haircut one day after the season ended, then let
it growout.

MALEPEAI
SCOUTING REPORT: No other rusher had as much
consistency, production and value, particularly
against top competition. He hit the 100-yard mark
in three of his first four games —26-139-2 against
Punahou, 19-156-3 against Kapolei and 22-117-2
against Waianae —before sitting out with a rib in-
jury. Then he returned and hit the century mark
against Campbell, Leilehua (twice) and Kahuku.
DID YOU KNOW: “He’s one of the most
well-liked guys on campus,” coach
Rod York said.

tack, he mastered everything as Punahou went un-
beaten to win the Division I state crown. He was a
shotgun slinger as a sophomore and junior, then

Red championship matchup with Farrington with
seven tackles and a sack, as the Trojans took the
title. He kept playing on the injury, which turned
out to be a broken foot, and had four tackles as

game. Fehoko faced plenty of top competitors as
he learned the newposition, but still finished
with 10 sacks, including two against eventual

MCENROE
SCOUTING REPORT: The two-sport athlete devel-
oped into an elite cornerback this season, cover-
ing deep threats fromthe best passing attacks in
the state. His ability to cover one on one gave the
Governors an edge in run defense. He finished the
season with six interceptions, including one
against Mililani. “You put technique on top of su-
perior athletic ability, I’d say he’s the best corner
in the state,” Trojans coach Rod York said. “The
one time we went to his side, he intercepted us
and we didn’t go that side again.”

ented, young corps of linebackers. His speed and

MATAUTIA
SCOUTING REPORT: Rangy, physical, explosive. No
other defensive back made the kind of plays
Matautia did. He picked off three passes in the
first three games of the season, returning one
fromthe back of the end zone all the way for a

sults? Punahou rushed for 162 yards per game

ground-and-pound attack that was one of the best
in the islands. Even with injuries to Kaulana
Apelu and Brandon Kahookele, the two running
