We dropped in on them the night they scrimmaged Rural Retreat, so it gives us a chance to see them in action. James River gets every ounce out of their talent with coach Phillip King at the helm. Coming off a 5-5 season and a first round Group 2A playoff loss a year ago the knights return athletes--and plenty of them. They appear ready to do some damage through the air with a pair of big wideouts.
Coach King will be coaching the last of his son's this year, which he says is a great opportunity and a great experience. That said, Coach King likes the makeup of this year's squad. saying the speed at the skill positions should make for an exciting season. The Knights open against Botetourt County rival Lord Botetourt on August 29th.
