Knox Central Questions


Recommended Posts

Doing research on Knox Central this week for a broadcast, need some help. I know they have had success recently but not terribly familiar with their history.


Was the school formed as part of consolidation? What is their history? How long have they had a program, regional championships, etc. Any notable players that have gone to D1. Primary rivals?


Not worried as much about this year's roster but top players and general offensive/defensive philosophies would be welcome.


Any help would be appreciated

A few odds and ends for you...


-The school was consolidated a long time ago and was participating in high school basketball district tournaments as early as 1936.


-Have played football since at least 1939. I have record of them finishing 0-4-2 in Cumberland Valley Conference play that season (Corbin was the champion).


-Won two district championships: 1975 (AAA) and 2014 (4A).


-Are 9-17 all-time in playoff games and have never won a region title. They lost in the regional final in 1975 (Highlands), 2008 (Bell County), 2010 (Bell County, again), and 2015 (Wayne County).


-Have made the playoffs every season since 2006. Prior to that season they had only made the playoffs six times.


-Current EKU starting linebacker Jeffrey Canady played at Knox Central and was a terrific running back and linebacker.


-Were coached from 2011-15 by Scott Russell who was Mr. Football at Evarts in 1990.
