Countdown to Kickoff: Karns

KNOXVILLE, (WVLT), This season the Karns Beavers do not have to worry about coaching drama heading into football season. Derek Witt is no longer just the interim coach. Witt was promoted to head coach after last season. Former head coach Robert Reeves was fired just before fall practice began last season.

In 2010 the Beavers finished 3-7, however things are looking up for the Beavers. Karns returns seven starters on both sides of the ball. This includes leading tackler safety Tyler Stewart and leading rusher Xavier Harper.

The Beavers team speed will play to their advantage, however Witt is worred about his team's size heading into the season.

Karns will truely be tested in the second-half of the season when the Beavers take on Anderson County, Powell and Hardin Valley. Each team made the playoffs last season.
