North Daviess is a family affair

(Continued)

One of the biggest reasons the father-daughter dynamic has worked in the coach-player relationship as been the unbelievable support from Jennifer, the matriarch of the Knepp household.

“A lot of people see Meghan and I out on the floor but what they do not get to see is the amazing woman behind it all,” Knepp said. “Jennifer is an awesome wife and a tremendous mother. When things do not go well she has to deal with me and her daughter, which takes a lot of patience and tender loving care. I cannot say enough about how blessed Meghan and I are to have her in our lives taking care of us. I do not have to worry about anything on game days. Several girls come over to the house after school, and when there are too many to fit in Meghan’s car she goes out to school and picks up the extras. The girls come over to eat and Jennifer gives Meghan her game day braids in her hair. Jennifer normally feeds five or six team members, what they call Thanksgiving dinner, before every game.”

Probably the most memorable game from a strictly individual performance was in last year’s sectional loss to Barr-Reeve, 52-50 at Kavanaugh Kourt. Meghan and Sabra Smith combined for 10 3-pointers and 46 points. Knepp admitted that if he had one regret it would be that often times in games, he’s too focused on the entire team and what is happening on the next play instead of just watching his daughter.

“I don’t get enough time to enjoy the ride,” Knepp said. “In the Barr-Reeve game last year, Meghan and Sabra were just having an incredible night. I would have loved to have been sitting in the stands to enjoy the show.”
