The honored athletes are Allie Dunn, Grace Christian Academy girls soccer; Keondra McKinney, Fulton High School girls basketball; and male students Luke Smith, Knoxville Catholic High School boys basketball; Davis Shore, Christian Academy of Knoxville golf; and Tee Higgins, Oak Ridge High School football and basketball.
This dinner induction ceremony will be held at the Knoxville Convention Center on August 3. Former Tennessee football player and motivational speaker, Inky Johnson, will serve as a guest speaker.
