Fan Controlled Football (FCF) boasts a variety of skilled football players from various walks of life. The league provides many with the opportunity to realize their dream of playing football professionally. Players from all over come to Pullman Yards for the chance to compete against former players from all levels of the game, including NAIA schools, college football powerhouses, and NFL teams. One thing is for certain in FCF: this thrilling league has incredible talent. 8OKI quarterback and MVP frontrunner Mitch Kidd has had a unique road that has led him to the front stage of FCF.
Kidd, a Salinas, California native, has quickly established himself as one of the top quarterbacks in FCF. Kidd currently leads the FCF with 413 yards through the air and 10 total touchdowns. 8OKI fans pounced on the opportunity to select Kidd as a keeper and hope to build upon their 2-1 record going into the second half of the season.
Kidd’s road to Pullman Yards contained four stops from Palma High School to De Anza Community College to the University of Redlands and the penultimate destination of arena football’s Salina Liberty. Kidd’s dedication and love to the game has taken him 2,402 miles from his hometown and he has shown up and shown out in two of the closest and most exciting games in Season 2 of FCF.
In week 1, Kidd put together a last minute comeback to give 8OKI an opening night win and cap off an electric first weekend of FCF. A 118 yard, four touchdown day for Kidd was capped off by a walk off touchdown pass to wide receiver, and fellow 8OKI keeper, Joseph Boykin for a 28-26 victory over the Kingpins. Week 3 saw similar heroics as 8OKI captured a thrilling 44-38 double overtime victory over the Beasts. Kidd once again lit up Pullman Yards with an impressive 179 yards and four touchdowns.
Kidd and the 8OKI squad will take on KOD this Saturday; KOD is currently riding a 2-game winning streak heading into the Week 4 contest. No matter the match up, you can count on one thing: The Kidd will be ready to put on a show and opposing defenses need to be ready for what he, and the 8OKI offense, can bring to the field.
