Championships aren't only won during games, they are won in the preparation! Training for the 2021 Fall Football Season is officially underway with the start of Varsity Gut Check this week. There is a lot going on with a short, but busy summer, so here's a snapshot of football camps & clinics. Registration and more details are found thru links below.
Football registration ($300) is now open (thru 8/10/21) for grades 9 - 12 through the KP Athletic Department on familyid.com. Additionally, Grade 9 & 11, plus any transfers must complete the Baseline Concussion Test prior to the start of practice - link will be provided in the registration e-mail.
Oh what a game! KP stuns Franklin with a touchdown pass from #10 QB Charlie Grant to #13 Danny Clancy with 1:08 left on the clock to win 14 - 10.
That's a wrap on the 2021 Fall II Season with the Warriors finishing 4 - 3 for the season. It was unique for sure and exciting down to the last minute. Thanks to our Seniors, thanks to our Coaches, and thanks to all of YOU!
The King Philip Warriors earned their 10th consecutive Thanksgiving Day win over Franklin with a 14 - 0 shutout at Macktaz Field. Senior Running Back #34 Ryan Halliday carried the ball 40 times for 219 yards as KP grinded down the field for two touchdowns. The Warrior Defense did what they do best and were relentless against a very good Franklin team.
It was a great finish to the season honoring the tradition of the turkey day rivalry. The Warriors went 8 - 3 for the 2019 season and finished #16 in the Boston Herald Sweet 16 for Eastern Mass.
Thanks to everyone for a great season and we'll see you next year! #futurelooksbright

The 2019 MIAA playoffs have begun and the Warriors did what they do best - WIN! KP (#3 Seed) beat Barnstable (#6 Seed) 34 - 6 last night at home. KP is now 12-1 in the last 13 postseason games. Clear your calendars for next Friday when the KP Warriors face their biggest rival, the Mansfield Hornets, in Mansfield in the Division 2 South Semi-Final. History says this rematch will be another epic battle not to be missed.
Last night the Warriors dominated in all facets of the game - the offense was a well orchestrated & executed machine, the defense was ruthless as usual and special teams came up with a kickoff return for a TD. Senior RB #34 Ryan Halliday was back with a cast on his left thumb after missing 3 games and was on fire. He ran for 101 yards and two touchdowns. Senior QB Robert Jarest was very impressive at 11 - 14 with 152 yards and two touchdowns - he does it all - he runs, scrambles, throws & scores! Sophomore #24 Nick Viscusi had a 78 yard kickoff return for a touchdown to start the second half and Sophomore #86 Drew Danson had some great catches, one which he grabbed a touchdown.
The Warrior Defense allowed just 3 first downs and 29 yards of offense in the first half. In the second half they forced three Barnstable turnovers and kept them under 100 yards of offense.
