The Knights have won nine district titles (’77, ’78, ’81, ’82, ’83, ’87 ,’92, ’07, ‘09). They also have one conference title(1981) and two regional titles(1987 & 2009). The present coach, Jeff Robbins, is the tenth coach to lead the Knights. Tommy Simpson was the first.

There have been 20 winning seasons and 21 losing seasons, with the 1987 team, under the leadership of Mark Brown, having the best season at 12-2 and also advancing the farthest in the playoffs, the state semi-finals. This was also achieved by the 2009 team under the leadership of Jeff Robbins.

Numerous players have been recognized at the conference, district, regional and state levels. At least eight players have rushed for 1000 yards. Four players have played in the Kentucky-Tennessee All-Star game.
