The Knoxville high school football family lost a big piece last weekend with the passing of Joel Helton. Helton coached at Central for 27 years. He died July 4 from liver cancer.
His children, Alison and Zach Helton, are working to establish a scholarship fund in his honor. The Joel Helton Memorial Scholarship will be given to a Central Bobcat who possess the qualities Coach Helton demanded of his players.
-Respectful to teachers, classmates and coaches
-Willingness to be a part of the team
If you wish to donate to the fund, you can send donations to:
