A vigil for Vince Manuwai will be held on Sunday at Farrington High School. EDIT: The family decided Wednesday evening to move the service to Sunday. The event will begin at 8:30 p.m. at Skippa Diaz Stadium. The former Farrington and Hawaii standout lineman played eight seasons in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Manuwai died on Saturday. He was 38.

Remembering Vince Manuwai, King of the Bamboolas

By Jerry Campany on November 4, 2018

Former Farrington lineman Vince Manuwai died today at age 38, leaving behind six children. Manuwai went on to become one of the best offensive linemen in UH history and made it all the way to the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but his legend was forged as one of the kings of the Bamboolas, as Farrington’s offensive line is known. Manuwai was a first-team All-State selection for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin after his senior season, earning honorable mention for the Honolulu […]

CLOSING THE BOOK: Farrington Governors

By Jerry Campany on November 4, 2018

The Farrington Governors finished a brutal season 2-10 in 2018, but they benefited from a coin flip by showing marked improvement in the OIA Open playoffs against Campbell. The Open Division was not kind to the Governors, causing them to win their fewest games since 2001 under Davis Pila and lose 10 games for the first time in the program’s long history. It was also the worst season by margin of victory (-16.6) since 1953 under first-year coach Francis Aiwohi, […]

Two promising freshmen quarterbacks emerged on the Hawaii football scene in the same game Friday night at Aloha Stadium. Campbell’s Blaine Hipa was a surprise starter over senior Krenston Kaipo, and he delivered in a big way, throwing for 241 yards and four TDs in the Sabers’ 42-26 victory over Farrington. On the opposing side, another ninth-grader — Rjay Tagataese — came in for senior starter Chris Afe-Alaivanu late in the second half. He guided the Governors to three TDs, […]

Govs, Sabers battle for a state berth

By Jerry Campany on November 2, 2018

Darren Johnson and the Campbell Sabers certainly didn’t want to play on the undercard of OIA Open championship night, but since they are here there is a matter of redemption to take care of. The Sabers lost to Waianae in overtime in the OIA’s third-place game last year, robbing them a trip to the state tournament in Johnson’s first year in Ewa. Should Campbell lose to Farrington this time, the Sabers would be the first program to lose the game […]
