To sense what was a key to the season for the Knoxville Football Squad, you had to look pretty deep into this season’s team. The Panthers at one time were 2-4 and on a four game losing streak and coming off the toughest stretch of the season. However…, an overtime win over North Polk in week seven sparked a three game winning streak to end the season and allow the Panthers to have a winning season at 5-4. Coach Eric Kellar tells KNIA/KRLS Sports he things it was the guys came together in adverse situations and allowed the Panthers to have the finish they did. The Chariton, North Polk, and Bondurant-Farrar victories were by seven points or less this season. Knoxville finished with a 5-4 record.
