2022 Recap

The 2022 football season was a rollercoaster ride for the Preston Knights, culminating in a hard-fought 1-9 record. Despite the team’s overall struggles, there were several highlights that showcased the Knights’ determination and talent, none more so than their resounding 22-0 victory over Washington late in the season.

Throughout the year, the Preston Knights battled against formidable opponents, and their 1-9 record does not accurately reflect the heart and effort displayed by the team. Close losses to Hampshire, East Fairmont, and Brooke provided glimpses of the Knights’ potential, highlighting their ability to compete with some of the toughest teams in the region.

Despite the challenging season, the Knights displayed determination and a never-give-up attitude. Their offensive unit averaged 15 points per game, proving their ability to find the end zone and put up a fight against even the strongest defenses. On the other side of the ball, the defense gave their all but conceded an average of 34 points per game. Nonetheless, their commitment to the game remained unwavering.

Looking ahead, the Preston Knights aim to use the lessons learned from the 2022 season to fuel their drive for success in the future. The players are determined to build upon their strengths, refine their skills, and make the necessary improvements to achieve their goals in the upcoming seasons.

While the 2022 campaign may not have yielded the desired results, the Preston Knights’ win against Washington demonstrated their ability to rise above adversity and finish the season on a high note. With a resilient spirit and a committed coaching staff, the Knights are ready to rise again and make their mark in the seasons to come.


2023 Outlook

In an exciting turn of events, the upcoming 2023 Preston Knights football team is gearing up for what promises to be a thrilling season. Under the guidance of head coach Mark Deep, the Knights have an impressive 13 starters returning, including some key senior players. With the addition of new coaches Drew Toth as the offensive coordinator and Kevin Fike as the defensive coordinator, the team is set to continue its upward trajectory and solidify its position as a competitive force in the league.

The Knights’ senior trio of Dillon Taylor, Greyson Kuhn, and Riley Land brings valuable experience and leadership to the team. These seasoned players will play a crucial role in guiding their teammates and maintaining a winning mentality throughout the season. However, it’s not just the seniors who are expected to shine on the field.

Alongside him, wide receiver Aiden Schmidl is primed to showcase his exceptional speed and agility, making him a formidable threat in the passing game. Defensively, safety Cole Turner and linebacker Ethan Likens are set to make their mark with their solid tackling and intelligent game reading abilities.

The coaching staff has also been bolstered with the additions of offensive coordinator Drew Toth and defensive coordinator Kevin Fike. Toth brings a wealth of experience and innovative strategies to the offensive side of the game, while Fike’s expertise in defensive schemes will undoubtedly enhance the Knights’ ability to stifle their opponents’ attacks. The combination of their fresh perspectives and the existing coaching staff’s knowledge is expected to contribute to the continued growth and success of the program.

The Knights’ schedule for the upcoming season features several key games that are likely to test their mettle. Matches against Hampshire, East Fairmont, Philip Barbour, and Buckhannon-Upshur are anticipated to be intense battles, with each team presenting unique challenges.
