The Maui News 1974 MIL Football All-Star Team
Sophomores were rarely chosen to MIL first teams prior to the '70s, and the fact that two 10th-graders were among the league's best players in 1974 is mind-boggling.
Credit the talents of Baldwin quarterback Lane Honda and Maui High nose guard Ryan Roback — the two sophomores who highlight the 1974 Maui News All-Star Team.
Honda led the Bears to the MIL championship and 11 of his teammates were named first-team all-stars, including Ernest Cabatingan, the MIL' s Most Outstanding Back, and Kurt Teshima, the MIL's Most Outstanding Lineman.
Joining Honda and Cabatingan on offense from Baldwin were running backs Aaron Pimentel, Ben Victorino, guard Clinton Santos, and center Earl Miyahira.
Defensively, the Bears' linemen Stanley Kuloloia, Chris Bueno, linebacker John Kohoohanohano, Kurt Sugiki, and defensive backs Joey Cabatingan, Glenn Fernandez.
Including Roback, Maui High landed six first-teamers, defensive end Alex Bode, linebacker Kimo Chong Kee, and defensive back Greg Singson. On offense the Sabers were led by tackle Randy Emmsley and guard Guy Singson.
Lahainaluna wide receiver Alan Kalehuawehe was a repeat all-star from 1973 and the only Luna chosen, while St. Anthony junior Charles Pico was the lone Trojan selected, and for good reason. Pico led the league in receiving with 304 yards, catching 21 passes, 10 more than the next most productive receiver in the league.
