Five Golden Eagle seniors were honored before the game and their impact on this team will not go unnoticed.
“Any time you can get a win on Senior Night, it is a good win. These seniors are a special group of young men that have worked tirelessly to get our program back on track,” Shelbyville Central coach Chase Jones said.
“Each of them, Caden Thomas, Marquis Wilson, Jaquai Beverly, Caleb Molder, and Ahmad Coats will be missed after this season. I am very excited to see what the future holds for each of them.”
