Co-Offensive Players of the Year: Angelo Deloso-Flocco, Baldwin, Sr. and Jake Schneider, Hawaii Prep, Jr.
There was no denying the worth of forwards Angelo Deloso-Flocco and Jake Schneider to their respective teams this season.

Deloso-Flocco, a Baldwin senior, and Schneider, a junior from Hawaii Prep, share the honor of being selected as ScoringLive's All-Hawaii co-Offensive Players of the Year — just as their teams shared the distinction of becoming the first neighbor island schools to win the Division I boys soccer state championship.

"He was very composed on the ball," Punahou coach David Trifonovitch said of Deloso-Flocco. "We were trying to defend him very hard, so we would stand him up and double team, but he had the composure to make some really good passes, but he's also good enough with it to beat a defender and get to goal. His composure in high-intensity situations was very good. We tried to rile him by making some hard tackles on him and it didn't faze him. In fact, it seemed to elevate his performance. In terms of what he did for his team, I think he was outstanding."

Deloso-Flocco, a repeat First Team All-Hawaii selection, scored 15 goals and assisted on eight others over the course of the season and helped Baldwin finish with a 10-1-2 record.

"He's a special player and he's a very versatile player," Iolani coach Chris Lee said. "He draws a lot of attention from opposing defense and he's smart enough and has the vision to pick up his open teammates. I think his individual ability and skill on the ball, as well as his vision, is what makes Angelo a special player."

Schneider, a Second Team All-Hawaii pick as a sophomore last year, scored in 12 of HPA's 15 games this season, including six games with multiple goals, and also led the team in assists.

"He's someone that has gotten better every year and he's impactful when it matters," Kapolei coach Ryan Lau said of Schneider. "I think what you saw this year was the physical and athletic maturation in his game. He made big strides in his pace and explosively and his one-v-one ability and he really was a handful. I think both guys (Schneider and Deloso-Flocco), but especially with Jake, they're the engine of the attack and he came up big for them."

Schneider's 19 goals this season led all of Division I. In fact, he scored 15 more goals than the second-leading goal scorers for Ka Makani this season.

"He definitely has the skill to go along with the physical ability and he's got a tremendous work rate. He can put the ball right over the keeper," Lee said. "He brings a lot of poise and composure."

Schneider and Deloso-Flocco were also named co-most outstanding players of the state tournament.

Kaiser senior forward Makana Srivongsana also received consideration for offensive player of the year.


Co-Defensive Player of the Year: Hayden Hawes, Baldwin, Sr. and Sikhea Jim, Hawaii Prep, Jr.
The state's two best individual defenders came from the state's two best teams.

ScoringLive's All-Hawaii co-Defensive Players of the Year are Baldwin's Hayden Hawes and Hawaii Prep's Sikhea Jim.

Hawes, a senior defensive midfielder, anchored a Baldwin that allowed nine goals over a 13-game season. After allowing seven goals through its first seven games, it held opponents to just two goals in its final six contests.

"He was one of the stronger defenders in the back," Trifonovitch said of Hawes. "He's big, strong and very physical, but it's what you do to win games. He scored the header on us on the corner kick and he did very well. He's a good, strong, central defender."

Hawes, who earned All-Hawaii Honorable Mention distinction last year, scored three goals and had four assists this season.

"With Hayden, we really wanted to be cognizant of him on restarts," Lau said. "Even though he didn't score versus us, you saw what he did the next night against Punahou when he did score on that header."

Jim, a junior center-back, paced an HPA defense that posted five shut outs and sealed the deal in a pair of one-goal state tournament victories over Iolani and King Kekaulike.

"He's kind of like Hawes in that he's another big, strong guy who is good in the air and able to stop the point of attack," Trifonovitch said of Jim, a repeat First Team All-Hawaii selection. "The thing that impressed me most about both Baldwin and HPA is they didn't just blast balls around. Their defenders were able to win balls. They didn't just head it out, kick it out or blast it out, they were able to get the balls out to their midfielders and move it upfield."

Lau agreed with Trifonovitch's assessment of the pair.

"They're both very strong, central defenders and they provide good leadership. I think what they both offer is the word presence. They both have a presence about them and they're both options when it comes to restarts in the attacking third," Lau said.

Both Hawes and Jim were named to the Division I all-tournament team at February's state tournament.

Punahou's Christopher Espinoza and King Kekaulike's Zakariya Woolley — a pair of senior center backs — were also considered for defensive player of the year.


Coach of the Year: Rich Braithwaite, Hawaii Prep
Winning a state title at any level is no easy task, but Hawaii Prep's Rich Braithwaite took it a step further this year.

After finishing as the state's lone undefeated team in 2018 with a record of 14-0-1, Ka Makani became the first program to win championships in consecutive seasons in different divisions.

In fact, it was the third straight state crown for HPA, which shared the Division I title with Baldwin after claiming back-to-back D2 championships the previous two years.

"In years past I thought that Hawaii Prep was probably good enough to be in Division I and I guess this year they showed that they belong there and that they should be there," Lee said. "Rich really got his guys up and they met the challenge. Part of it, I feel, is the success they've had in D2 has brought a lot of confidence and pride in their program. Even though it's D2 to D1, it's still the success they've had that the guys expect to win and they expect to do well."

Trifonovitch credited Braithwaite for keeping his team running at a high capacity despite a lack of close games in the Big Island Interscholastic Federation.

"Honestly, they don't have a lot of competition over there so they have to play through these softer games and to be able to prep his team and do what they did in the state tournament, that's outstanding," Trifonovitch said.

Braithwaite's squad made a trip to Oahu for several tune-ups in preparation for the state tournament during Christmas break. One of those scrimmages resulted in a 5-1 loss to Iolani.

HPA came back to beat that same Iolani team, 2-1, in the state quarterfinals nearly two months later.

"Rich is a smart coach and he figured out what he needed to do and he turned the tables on them," Trifonovitch said.

Shortly after the state tournament, Braithwaite announced that he would not be returning to coach at HPA next season. He and his wife — both English teachers — will be moving to Malawi in Africa along with their two children.

Braithwaite edged out King Kekaulike co-coaches Tye Perdido and Barry McKay and Baldwin's Kaniela Palazzotto for coach of the year honors.
