4 from Hawaii named to Pac-12 all-conference teams

    Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota (8) runs in for a touchdown during the first quarter of an NCAA college football game against Colorado.

Led by three-time pick Marcus Mariota of Oregon, four players from Hawaii were named to Pac-12 all-conference teams today, the conference announced.

Mariota, a Saint Louis School graduate who was named the conference offensive player of the year Tuesday, was the first-team quarterback for the third consecutive year.  He is a finalist for the Davey O’Brien Award, Maxwell Award, Walter Camp Award and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and is expected to be announced as a Heisman Trophy finalist Monday.

Kahuku High graduate Hau’oli Kikaha of Washington was a first-team linebacker in voting by the league’s coaches. He was a second-team pick in 2013. This year Kikaha broke school records for  career sacks (35), single-single sacks (18) and tackles for loss in a single season (24). 

Kikaha is a finalist for the Butkus Award that goes to the nation’s top linebacker and the Lombardi Award, which goes to the top linebacker or lineman.

Oregon defensive lineman DeForest Buckner, a Punahou School graduate, was a second-team selection and Washington offensive lineman Micah Hatchie (Waialua) was an honorable mention pick for the second consecutive season.
