Campbell Sabers climb to fourth in Cover2 & GEICO State Rankings

Cover2 State Rankings

Following an impressive 37-20 road victory over O’Conner of Arizona, The Campbell Sabers climbed a spot in the latest Cover2 & GEICO State Rankings.

At 3-0 on the season Campbell came in at number four in the top-12, swapping spots with Punahou (2-1) and two spots ahead of Friday’s opponent Kamehameha. 

Through the team’s first three games quarterbacks Kaniala Kalaola and Krenston Kaipo have combined 448 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions.

At receiver there are four players averaging 20-yards per catch, confirming the prediction of many that the Sabers would have a potent offense in 2018.

At the top of the rankings, Saint Louis remains as the unanimous choice, followed by Kahuku.

This Friday night at Aloha Stadium the Crusaders and Red Raiders will meet in a rematch of the last three state championship games.

Last year, current University of Hawaii freshman quarterback Chevan Cordeiro followed the footsteps of Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa by leading Saint Louis to a state title win over the Red Raiders. In 2015 Kahuku beat the Saints.

In total, the arch-rivals have met a total of 13-times in state championship games with Saint Louis holding an 8-5 advantage.
