It’s not often you can find a player of the game on a losing team. Or player of the week.
But Bedrock Sports Hawaii found somebody deserving on a losing team for its WEEK 15 outstanding football player honor.
PAC-5’s Blade Kaululaau, a two-way standout for the Wolfpack at running back and linebacker, earned the recognition by doing a little bit of everything in a 38-6 loss to Nanakuli in the Division II first round of the First Hawaiian Bank/HHSAA Football State Championships.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound senior had a tackle for loss among his 13 stops, forced and recovered a fumble and also had an interception with a 25-yard runback.
Offensively, Kaululaau had 10 carries for 39 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown, and one catch for 13 yards.
The Wolfpack (3-5), who were playing in their second state tournament game in history, did not advance and their season is over.
