Seneca’s King honored prior to retirement from coaching basketball

Will King spent 18 years as the boys head basketball coach

SENECA, Mo. – The Seneca boys head basketball coach is being honored today in the Indians final home game of the season. Will King is retiring at the end of the season after 18 years as the Indians head coach.

“It’s tough. I’ve been an emotional rollercoaster this year,” King says. “It’s what I’ve done my whole career is be a part of coaching basketball. But it’s bigger than that. I hope I can still make an  impact in different areas.”

In his time at Seneca, King has lead the Indians to three conference championships and three district championships.

“There’s several of my past assistants here tonight and lots of great past players,” King says. “I’m a firm believer that life is about relationships and that’s the biggest blessing through all my  eighteen years of coaching here. I’ve been blessed with a lot of great relationships and a lot of great young men that have been huge to me. It’s so great to see their faces tonight.”
