Football - Varsity Boys

In early October 2015, Forman announced plans to join an eight-player football initiative among New England preparatory schools. The goal of the initiative was to provide a viable, long-term alternative to the game in its traditional form. After the initial announcement, The Gunnery, Millbrook School, and Pomfret School all joined Forman in the league. Play began in Fall 2016.
