FNF Previews 2017: Knox City Greyhounds

KNOX CITY - The Knox City Greyhounds are looking to reload following last year's quarterfinal run, but they'll have to do it with just 6 players returning this season.

The Greyhounds are losing three players with All-State honors to graduation, but will look to second-team All-Stater Brady Hawkins, who had 900 receiving yards, 16 touchdowns, and 88 tackles, to be one of the main offensive weapsons this season. Along with Jessie Munoz and Andrew Casillas.

Knox City is coming off an 8-5 season, ending in the state quarterfinals. This is Caleb Calloway's second season as head coach for the Greyhounds and he hopes to see another successful season.

"We started the year off 1-3, and then we went 7-2 our last nine games," Calloway said. "So, we reallly were about to turn it around at a certain point. The kids really bought into what we were trying to do and I think they got excited when they saw all the success we can have. It kind of rolled into a nice little play off run. It was a really good year for the kids and for  coaching staff."

"I'm looking forward to the kids getting out and learning. We're going to be younger this year. We graduated 7 off of last year's team. We have  lot of younger kids coming in that had reps coming in last year. So, we're looking at development, but like I tell everyone else, our goal is always the same, to go compete for a district championship. It doesn't matter if you're young or old, you still have to play on Friday nights. So, that's our objective is to go out and win a district championship again and make the playoffs."

The Greyhounds kick off their season at the Jayden Classic against Water Valley.

Knox City are joined by Spur, Rotan, and Paducah in District 4-1A, DI this year.
