FEHS FOOTBALL OVERVIEW

Head Coach:  Marvin Applequist

2018 Results: 2018 6-Man State Champions


COACH’S THOUGHTS

“It’s going to be a much different year. We lost six seniors and that’s a big loss to us. These kids have been working hard in the weight room all summer and they are excited to get after it.

We’ll have one senior on this year’s team, Karsen Keeler. He’s been making big improvements and we’re looking for him to step into that leadership position here on the team.

We have a whole pile of juniors. That class is really strong and they had a lot of playing time last year.

Expectations will be high. That’s a good thing. It’s good to have a program that’s going strong. I think we’ll be there at the end. It’ll be great to get out there and play football again.”



RISING STARS

Karsen Keeler
Carson Jones
Kolby Jones
Parker Clawson


MY THOUGHTS

The Pronghorns finished 2018 as undefeated 6-man state champions. The only loss Farson-Eden recorded was the lost talent due to graduation. But the team brings back a wealth of talent and experience to the 2019 season.

With Karsen Keeler being the only one senior on the team, the junior class has the next two seasons to lead and compete. While the expectations are high going into this season, the winning culture in Farson is one that I believe continues into this year for Applequist and his team. Looking at the schedule for Farson, the team only has to hit the road three times during the season which is huge for any football team.

It’s hard to pick against the Pronghorns this season and I too believe that this team will be competing for a chance to go back-to-back champions.
