  • Voice of the basketball Knights - Jerry Reynolds

    Since 1987, Jerry Reynolds has announced boys basketball games at Marion County High School. During the past 26 seasons, Reynolds has seen a lot of basketball and two teams he remembers the most during his tenure.
    "The 1992 and 1993 teams stand out in my mind because they went to state," he said. "In 1992, we went to the state for the first time in school history, and in 1993, we won the state championship. It just doesn't get any better than that."
