It seems to be the age of the goalkeeper.

Punahou’s Tyler Ohata was judged the Star-Advertiser’s player of the year on Sunday, the third straight year a keeper was so honored.

He follows Kalani’s Michael Stafford last year and Josh Adachi of Iolani the year before. You have to go all the way back to 2004 to find another keeper being named the Player of the Year, when Mililani’s Darren Smith was the choice.


Ohata’s Buffanblu gave up only four goals this season, two in the regular season and two at states. The last three Division I state championship matches have ended in shutouts. He is joined on the first team by midfielder Christopher Brubaker and defender Sheafer Rafto.

Here are a few notes on this year’s selections:


>> A senior has been the player of the year every time except twice since 2000, juniors Nick Love of Punahou in 2006 and Kalani’s Leo Klink in 2012.
>> David Trifonovitch is the boys coach of the year for the third time, one behind Mililani’s Jeff Yamamoto with the most since 2001.
>> Baldwin has its first first teamer since Nathan Fernandez in 2011. Deloso-Flocco can become the first Bear to repeat since Keola Nobriga in 2002-2003.
>> Despite winning the Division II title, Hawaii Prep has not had a first teamer since CJ Cintas in 2006.
>> Iolani was shut out of the first team for the first time since 2011.
>> Kalani has had at least one first teamer two years in a row, it has never had a first teamer three years in a row.
>> Kamehameha hasn’t had a first teamer since 2010 when Ryan Ho made it.
>> Shandon Hopeau is the first Kapolei player to repeat on the first team since Rowen White in 2011-12.
>> KS-Maui put multiple players on the first team for the first time in program history.
>> Mid-Pacific has had at least one first teamer three years in a row.
>> Mililani has been shut out of the first team in two of the last three years.
>> Punahou has had at least one first teamer every year since it was shut out in 2008.
