Farmington Football Preview

(Farmington) The Farmington football team went 4-7 last season, the Knights’ least amount of wins since 2014 when they only won twice. Farmington’s opponents last year had a combined record of 57-27. The good news is they’re bolstered with a lot of returning athletes. Head coach Erik Kruppe says the Knights should have a large chunk of upperclassmen suiting up on Friday nights, including 11 seniors.

Kruppe says the upperclassmen have learned to be good teachers to the freshmen and sophomores.

When asked if there were any players that have caught his attention this summer, coach Kruppe didn’t want to single out anyone specifically, instead focusing on the improvement of the Knights as a whole.

However, junior Kaesen McClain is hard to miss. He was the only sophomore on last year’s Regional Radio Dream Team, rushing for nearly 1,300 yards and recording nine tackles-for-loss and a sack on the defensive line. We asked coach Kruppe how McClain has been looking this summer.

The Farmington Knights open their season at home against the North County Raiders on Friday, August 25th. You can listen to coverage of every Farmington football game on AM-800 KREI and
