Keon’s last run. Webb-Bell Buckle will never have a better chance to win the TSSAA State Championship.  For a school of 320 students, a Keon Johnson comes around once in a lifetime.  

Alas, Keon Johnson is not alone. 

Background:

Webb defeated a lot of wonderful teams in 2018-2019.  Victims included: Ensworth, C.P.A.x3, Knoxville Webb, Knowledge Academies, Clarksville Academy.  Near losses to Cleveland, Hamilton Southeastern (IN), and BGA hardly blemished their strong season.  The most painful loss was the last one…a TSSAA State Semifinal Game loss to Tipton-Rosemark, 67-62.  Keon Johnson, the state’s best player, will certainly win his third consecutive Mr. Basketball award.  He will be honored, but just a hunch he will be unsatisfied without a State Title.

Webb Roster: 

2020 G Keon Johnson (#1 in PrepHoopsTN 2020) Tennessee verbal

2021 G Sam Hastings 

2021 G Michael Chambers

2021  G Weston Coop

2022 G Avante “Khi” Harris

2020 PG Javonte’ “J.J.” Platt (#27 in 2020)

2021 G Jordan Jenkins (#45 in 2021)

 

Scout’s Outlook: 

The squad boasts at least three college prospect beyond the esteemed Johnson. Platt will play in college.  Jordan Jenkins has a chance in two sports.  Sophomore Avante Harris played well in June at Lipscomb’s Team Camp.

Khi Harris is probably the most improved player in the program.  His role is still complimentary, but the team needs rebounding and he can score from the wing or recover offensive rebounds.  Look for Harris to be the X-factor in his sophomore season.

The Season

Webb opens up play November 22nd against Franklin County.  They play in the Lighthouse Classic over Thanksgiving Weekend.  The Lighthouse Director pitted the against Center Hill and Holly Springs.  Both of those MS power programs will challenge the Feet.
