Football Program Overview
Avon Old Farms School fields football teams at the varsity, junior varsity and third’s level. The teams compete in the most competitive football league in New England, the “Erickson League”, which is made up of the following schools: Avon Old Farms School, Brunswick School, Berkshire School, Hotchkiss School, Kent School, Salisbury School, Taft School and Trinity Pawling School.
Avon Old Farms Football has built its reputation of instilling into our young men lifetime lessons based on character, leadership and honor. Avon Old Farms believes that some of life’s most important lessons are learned on the playing fields. The ideals of teamwork, commitment, sportsmanship and overcoming adversity are lessons learned by all of our young men on the football field.
The football coaches at Avon Old Farms not only prepare the athletes to compete at a high level, they also stress and promote the importance of success in the classroom and as good citizens within the school community. The coaches work closely with our college counseling office and this has ensured our players that they are able to pursue placement at top colleges and universities.
