       The 511 points scored by the Leopards last year were a team record in a single season.

       The high-scoring Blount offense ranked 9th in the AHSAA. They averaged 42.6 points a game.

       Since 2010, Blount has gone a combined 47-21. Their 69.0% winning percentage ranks 13th in Class 6A over the past six seasons.
