Reggie Torres‘ first season as Kahuku head coach in 2006 ended with the Red Raiders winning the state title with a 7-6 victory over Saint Louis.

Torres was the coach of the year and won without either the offensive or defensive player of the year on his roster.

Both newspapers agreed on Waianae’s George Kauwalu as the top defensive player in the state. The Honolulu Advertiser chose Saint Louis quarterback Micah Mamiya as its offensive player of the year. Mamiya, in his junior season, threw for 1,532 yards and 11 touchdowns and rushed for 524 yards and nine scores. The Crusaders went 11-0 in games he started.

The Star-Bulletin chose Punahou senior receiver Miah Ostrowski as its offensive player of the year. Ostrowski finished with 81 catches and 1,317 receiving yards to go along with 11 touchdowns in 10 games. His receiving yardage was the second-most ever in a single season at that time, trailing only Saint Louis’ Gerald Welch.

Mamiya finshed on the Star-Bulletin second team, behind Leilehua’s Bryant Moniz. Moniz was the Advertiser’s third-team quarterback, behind Punahou’s Brett Kan.

Punahou sophomore linebacker Manti Te’o was named to the second team of both newspapers.
