Mariota is Gatorade player of year
Saint Louis senior quarterback Marcus Mariota is the Hawaii Gatorade football player of the year.
Mariota led the Crusaders to the ILH and state titles this past season, and was named the Star-Advertiser offensive player of the year.
Mariota also has a 3.6 grade-point average and has orally committed to play for national runner-up Oregon.
"I am delighted for Marcus. It is well deserved. Equally impressive is the fine example he displays in the classroom, on campus and in the community," Saint Louis principal Pat Hamamoto said.
