Ryan Walters was named first team all-conference and tallied 286 points his final season. He also nabbed 113 rebounds, 18 steals and 86 assists.

What makes a dangerous team is having several players that can lead on any given night, making the squad hard to guard.

With a senior core that had put in a lot of time on the court, South Hardin had built that sense of family and were tight knit. On any given night one player or another could go off and lead the team in scoring or rebounding. Five players averaged double-digit points per game. As the season progressed, they were at their best.
