Farmington High School and football coach Walter Grebe produced a second straight unbeaten season in 1946 when the Farmers raced through a 10-game schedule unstopped.

With Bill Tuttle, later to be a major league baseball standout for 11 years with three American League teams, at quarterback, Farmington used a torrid attack and a rugged defense to produce a truly momentous season.

A 13-0 win over Chillicothe was the closest game of the season and long-time rival Canton was blitzed 26-0 in the annual season-ending game between these two old rivals.

For the season Farmington scored 295 points, allowed just 19 and produced an amazing eight shutouts.
