Magical FHS frosh season ends


Farragut High School freshman boys basketball team recently completed a magical season.

The tournament’s top seed, Farragut enjoyed several big victories this season despite a 50-49 loss to Carter Wednesday, Jan. 25, in the KIL Freshman Tournament at Gibbs High School.

“It was a tough way for the season to end but it was a special season,” FHS coach Brent Burns said. “These kids had a mental toughness about them. We had a lot of 6 a.m. practices but nobody ever complained.”

The 2011-12 campaign had plenty of big moments. Farragut notched a regular-season comeback victory over two-time defending champion Austin-East in which the Ads erased a late deficit with a 15-0 run.


“That game really sticks in my mind,” said Ads center Will Doeger, who combined with Matt Eggert for a potent 1-2 inside punch. “We were down with four minutes left and we went to a full-court press and went on a 15-0 run and won the game.”
