Manley wins Gatorade award

Leilehua quarterback Andrew Manley was named the Gatorade Hawaii football player of the year yesterday.

The 6-foot-3 senior led the Mules to the semifinals of the HHSAA State Division I football championships before losing to Kamehameha last week.

Manley completed 247 of 412 passes for 3,099 yards and 28 touchdowns in 13 games this year.

Manley, who carries a 3.14 grade-point average, is a finalist for the national award that will be announced later this month.

Punahou's Manti Te'o won the award the past two seasons.
