Farmington High School Football Coach Retires After 28 Years of Service
FARMINGTON, Minn., Nov. 18, 2014 – Mark Froehling, Football Coach at Farmington High School for the past 15 years, has announced his retirement from the Head Coach position. Mr. Froehling coached the Tigers to 5 Conference Championships and 2 State Tournament appearances during his 15 years as Head Coach of Farmington. In recent years Mr. Froehling was the recipient of Minnesota's 2012 Power of Influence Award, given by the Minnesota Football Coaches Association (MFCA). With a total of 28 years of coaching experience, he has had a great effect on the athletics department, the football program, and the lives of countless students.
Bill Tschida, Farmington High School Athletics Director, said “He has had great success on the field over the years, but his greatest impact was on the lives of the young men that he influenced by his coaching.  We are grateful to Mark for all that he has done for Farmington High School.” Mr. Froehling will continue on at Farmington High School as a science teacher where he plans to keep having a positive impact on the lives of students.
