Today Central Nebraska’s Sports Source continues its series of previews highlighting some of our area sports teams as we prepare for the start of the fall sports season. Today we put the spotlight on the Sandhills/Thedford Knights. Josh Deines enters his 7th year as head coach of the Knights. Sandhills/Thedford will be a rather young team this year but coach Deines told us that he is very pleased with the work ethic of the underclassmen and the leadership of the more experienced players. The Knights had the opportunity to travel to Chadron over the summer for team camp. According to coach Deines, it was an experience that was very beneficial as some of the younger players make the transition to playing at the high school level. Sandhills/Thedford will open its season at home in Dunning when they host Ainsworth on August 24th. Central Nebraska’s Sports Source will provide live radio coverage of the Knights’ opener on KBBN 95.3 FM.
