The TKA board approved a football team in 2002. At that time, TKA started with a JV team coached by Bob Sykes who had been the JV coach at Saratoga High. Of the 35 member squad, all but two of the initial players had never played contact football before. The Knights finished with a 7-3 record in their first season of football.
In 2003, TKA was fortunate to bring on Ron Kellner from Valley Christian High School, who led the program for approximately 7 years. Ron, who also served as a TKA Bible teacher, encouraged the display of Christian character on and off the field, while employing a double wing offense which emphasized the run. During Ron’s tenure, the TKA football program went from membership in the North Coast Section to the Peninsula Athletic League, and made appearances in the CCS playoffs.
In the relatively brief time TKA's football program has been in existence, it has seen some amazing highlights, including entry into the Pacific Athletic League, CCS playoff appearances, Christian character and actions recognized by other schools, consistent awards for highest academic achievement, and young men continuing to play in college, including play at D1 schools with scholarships.
