The 2015-2016 season should be a memorable one from a historical standpoint. 6-2 senior point guard Kyre Allison, barring injury, should become the Trojans' all-time leading scorer. Currently, Craig Tubbs (1979) holds the top spot with 1,485 points. Allison, who currently has 1,167 points in his career, should pass Tubbs late in the 2015-2016 season. Kyre has started since he was a freshman, and against Logan his first season, scored 26 points, leading PHS to a win at LHS. Those 26 points tied Andrew Bendolph's freshman mark set in the 2008 season, when Bendolph scored his vs. Chillicothe.
