by Erie Express Media

The Erie Express are pleased to announce the signing of 4x All-Pro DL-Kristopher Ford (Portland, HS) for the 2021 season. Kris begins his first season with the Express and will compete for a spot in the defensive rotation.

Ford is a graduate of Portland High School (CT) and is originally from Brooklyn, NY. Kris now calls Warren, OH home and is no stranger to this level of football. Ford is an 8yr veteran having played for the Mahoning Valley Tigers, Giants and Scourge. 

Kristopher has been selected All-Pro 4x and has a league title under his belt. The DAY AFTER surgery, Kris helped lead the Ohio Silverbacks to the PAFL T2 Championship and an eventual appearance in a National Bowl Game.

  "We are very happy to have Kristopher on board with us this season. He is a proven winner and has the heart of a warrior. One day after having surgery he suited up and helped lead the Silverbacks to a PAFL T2 championship. That speaks volumes to his commitment to his teammates and team. We are looking forward to seeing what he does in an Express uniform"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington. 

Welcome aboard the PAINTRAIN Kristopher! GO EXPRESS!
