One of the main keys for Knoxville boys success this season was the overall senior leadership. The five seniors set out from the first day of practice that a winless season was not only going to be unacceptable, but winning was the goal, in every game. While the Panthers only reached their goal of winning six games this season Coach Jeff Larson tells KNIA/KRLS the five seniors were instrumental in keeping the rest of the team in check and focused on the task at hand. He adds that will set them up for whatever they do in life. The five seniors were Chase Higgenbotham, Gerrit Davis, Luke Smith, Grant Pearson, and Bryce Zoutte.
