No. 5 Mililani lays the wood on No. 4 Campbell

By Brian McInnis on September 16, 2018

Campbell coach Darren Johnson gave a tongue-in-cheek comparison of fortunes to the University of Hawaii football team as he walked off the field at John Kauinana Stadium. “They bachi’d us. When they win, we win,” Johnson said of the Rainbow Warriors, who fell by a touchdown at Army earlier Saturday in West Point, N.Y. And so it was that No.4 Campbell (4-1, 1-1 OIA Open Division) received a 52-14 beatdown at the hands of an extremely motivated No. 5 Mililani […]

By Brian McInnis on September 15, 2018

No. 5 Mililani 52, No. 4 Campbell 14, F ———- 10:12: And that’s that, final. Mililani put on a show. 10:03: I’m heading down to the field. Your final should be 52-14. … Although the clock is stopped at 49 seconds because of an injury to a Mililani player. 9:56: Dillon Gabriel’s night is done, as he gives way to backup RJ Javar. Gabriel with, I believe, 371 yards passing and 4 TDs, plus one more on the ground. 9:49: […]

By Jason Kaneshiro on August 19, 2018

Campbell’s effort and energy concerned coach Darren Johnson early in Saturday’s OIA Open Division matchup with Farrington. The Sabers had too much of both.

Q&A: Campbell coach Darren Johnson

By Paul Honda on August 16, 2018

Meet Darren Johnson. Kahuku basketball wiz. Ukulele player. Dallas Cowboys fanatic. Kahuku football player, assistant coach. Kailua head coach. Kahuku basketball coach. Campbell Sabers football coach. That’s right. Coach DJ wakes up early, heads to his job in Kalihi (OCCC), then heads to Ewa Beach for practice, and then back to Hauula. Every day, almost. Somehow, he’s managed a near 100-percent academic eligibility rate in his two seasons — perfect, actually, this fall. On the field, the Sabers are in […]

Campbell’s Delos Reyes eases into retirement

By Nick Abramo on August 5, 2018

Sam Delos Reyes was not crazily busy Saturday. Not like last year and all those years before. The Campbell Sabers were playing the Hilo Vikings in a season-opening football game, and Delos Reyes was not the man constantly making sure if everything — the whole production — was in order. Those days are gone, and Delos Reyes was relaxed to da max — or at least as much as he could be. He still had a duty to perform, and […]
