EDMOND — Michael Farmer, who began his high school football career at Edmond Memorial, transferred to Edmond North and came up just one touchown short of 20 in 2012.

Today, Farmer dropped off his Husky gridiron gear and notified new Edmond North football coach Scott Burger he will play this fall for Edmond Santa Fe.

Farmer has been recovering from a knee injury and did not work out with the Huskies this summer.

“The first I heard of it was today,” Burger said. “The day I got hired (May 29) I went up to the football office and he was sitting in the weight room.

“I introduced myself and talked to him five minutes. That’s the last I saw of him until today when he turned in all of his equipment.”

Though Farmer missed 1,000 yards rushing by just five with 995, North is full of talent at the position.

“We’ll be fine, there’s a bunch of them,” Burger noted. “There are 4-5 who can do the job.”

Two seniors, Lindell Tate (5-8, 180 pounds) and Ezel McIntee (5-10, 185) possess experience at running back.
