CTK: Kingston Yellowjackets

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A very young Kingston Yellowjackets team struggled through a tough 2013. But those hard knock lessons should come in handy this season. A predominantly Freshman and Sophomore squad in 2013 has grown a year older, a year wiser and a year bigger. That development has the 2014 Yellowjackets ready to take some steps forward.

"We've got a lot of growth. We had some young backs and I've seen them go and not be as afraid to run it anymore. It's so much easier after having a year under our belt," says Junior quarterback Paul Bolden.

Senior Parker Johnston agrees. "Everybody's been learning a lot. Everybody's been getting a lot stronger in the weight room. I just feel like we're going to be a lot better than last year."

The Yellowjackets have a tough season opener, facing Grace Christian on the road in Week 1.
