Coaches who also received consideration: Larry Park, Kamehameha

Player of the Year: Christmas Togiai, Kamehameha, G/F, Sr.
Christmas Togiai was a joy to watch on the hardwood floor.

The Kamehameha four-year varsity player led the Warriors to a remarkable undefeated run through Division I play in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu and is the ScoringLive All-Hawaii Boys Basketball Player of the Year.

The Warriors also won every game in 2020 that Togiai suited up in as Kamehameha reached the state championship game for the first time since 2011.

"To me, Christmas Togiai epitomizes the word valuable," said Mid-Pacific coach Robert Shkolv. "He functioned as their offensive fulcrum and defensive ringleader. Their on and off-court captain. Both their physical catalyst and spiritual leader. He's an outstanding young man who plays the game the right way: with passion and class."

Togiai averaged a modest 14 points per game, but his worth to the team isn't defined by a statistic.

"Being a four-year varsity starter helped him to become a fearless leader," said Kahuku coach Brandyn Akana. "He led his team to an undefeated ILH basketball season, which is unheard of, and came one step away from winning a state championship.

"Christmas had everything; a competitive heart, size, basketball IQ, shooting touch, body control, and most importantly, he led by example. Christmas is the type of player that comes around every 5 to 10 years."

Coach of the Year: Kelly Grant, Maryknoll
Twice is nice.

Kelly Grant is the Coach of the Year for another season in a row after his Spartans repeated as D1 state champions.

It was the first time that a program won consecutive D1 state titles since the classification change in 2007.
