Kahuku running back Lakei Heimuli and Waianae defensive back Derrick Mahaulu were the top offensive and defensive players as chosen by the Honolulu Advertiser in 1982.
The year is best remembered, through, for Pac-Five winning the first of its two Prep Bowls under Don Botelho. Running back Joe Onosai, quarterback Tino Sellitto and Russell Borden, the only offensive lineman selected to the All-State first team shorter than 6 feet, were all All-State picks on offense. Wolfpack defensive lineman Joey Fleming, who like Borden was 5-foot-11, also made the first team.
The Star-Bulletin had Heimuli as its top offensive player, but gave the defensive player of the year award to Farrington senior defensive lineman Al Noga.
The league all-star teams in both the ILH and OIA are below the All-State teams.
