Krupp preps at Woodcreek High School, where as a senior he did a little bit of everything for Woodcreek. He completed 80-of-147 passes for 1157 yards and 17 touchdowns (against only three interceptions), rushed 87 times for 614 yards and 14 more scores, had a 57 yard interception returned for a touchdown, punted 15 times for 577 yards (38.5 avg.), kicked 43 PATS. If that’s not enough he also plays on the Woodcreek baseball and basketball teams. Krupp was named to the All-Metro second team and was the All-SFL utility player of the Year.
As a junior Krupp was 109-for-192 passing for 1458 yards and 12 touchdowns, rushed 131 times for 935 yards and 12 touchdowns, punted 18 times for 708 yards, and kicked 30 PATs.
Krupp will join the Cougars in 2021 as a preferred walk-on after serving an LDS mission.

I caught up with Krupp to ask him about his recruiting.
BYU Insider: Why did you choose BYU?
Krupp: BYU has been my dream school ever since I could remember. One of the main reasons is the family aspect and it’s just the environment that I want to surround myself in for the next couple of years. BYU will give me the best shot to prove myself as a football player and also challenge me academically. I am always looking for a challenge to push myself and BYU is definitely the best choice to do that.
BYU Insider: What other schools were showing you love in the recruiting process?
Krupp: UC-Davis, Sacramento State, Portland State, and Utah State
BYU Insider: What are some of your favorites?
Krupp: My favorite cereal is fruity pebbles, favorite color is red… but I’m getting used to the blue. Favorite cartoon is Scooby Doo, and I listen to all types of music.
BYU Insider: What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Krupp: “Hard work beats talent, when talent fails to work hard.”
BYU Insider: Who is a current player that you seek to emulate on the field?
Krupp: Taysom Hill. I am willing to sacrifice anything and willing to play anywhere on the field to help benefit the team.
BYU Insider: Is there anything else you’d like Cougarfans to know about you?
Krupp: I am serving a two year mission right out of high school. Should have my call late February or early March. Can’t wait to play for BYU after the mission. #gocougs
