What was a big question mark coming into the season for the Knoxville Football Squad, is now giving the coaching staff some very positive answers. The defensive line was supped to be a work in progress. While, there is still improvement to be made, Coach Troy Rider says the defensive line play has been a key reason for Knoxville’s 2-0 start. He says Joe Stearns, Reed Long, Kyle Kaestener and others have stepped up their play in the first two games. The Panthers have yielded a net 27 yards rushing in the first two games combined. Knoxville welcomes Winterset to Ken Locke Stadium this Friday for the class 3A district eight opener.
