Saint Louis wide receiver Micah Matsuzaki led the way in 1988 as the offensive player of the year by both newspapers.
Matsuzaki scored 11 touchdowns in 1988, including three on punt returns.
The Honolulu Advertiser named Saint Louis linebacker Kendall Purcell as its defensive player of the year.
The Star-Bulletin came up with an interesting note on its All-Oahu team. Three players — defensive backs Sean Spencer of Kamehameha and Robert Pagan of Saint Louis, along with Kailua running back Byron Apuakehau — all lived on the same street (Haleaupuni St.) in Waimanalo.
Apuakehau was part of a talented running back class that also featured Saint Louis’ Tupu Alualu and Leilehua’s Adrian Murrell. Murrell rushed for 323 yards in a game against Waialua and 275 yards against Aiea.
Saint Louis’ Mike Nua was the quarterback chosen by both newspapers.
