KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- This week our Varsity All Access Player of the Week comes from just down the road in West Knoxville.

Now in its 34th year of honoring the nation's best high school athletes, the Gatorade company has announced Jake Renfree of Knoxville Catholic high school as its 2018-19 Gatorade Tennessee boys cross country runner of the year.

The award recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and terrific character on and off the field.. it's an honor this standout runner has been striding for saying,It's definitely something I really wanted to get and i knew that performing well at state and nationals was something I was going to have to do to get it, I think it's a testament to my hard work over the last 4 years and everything coach O'neil has done to get me here."

congratulations to our varsity all access player of the week, Jake Renfree, on the Gatorade honor and a wonderful career at KCHS!
