Prep Football All-Star teams

Charlie Wedemeyer's greatness has withstood the test of time.

Hawaii Prep World is in the process of putting together a list of every prep football all-star team as voted on by the major newspapers dating back to the 1940s. Below is a year-by-year list of the teams we have put together. Eventually, we hope to have every year represented.
