John Knight talks first offer

John Knight, athlete from Thomasville, Ala., rushed for more than 170 yards with three touchdowns in his team's fall jamboree game against Hueytown. He was rewarded with his first scholarship offer.

"I received my first offer today from Troy," said John Knight. "Their coach called my coach and told him. They said they are sending me the paperwork in the mail tomorrow.

"I was really excited about the offer. It's great to have my first one. I feel like all the pressure is off of me now. It's very exciting."

Knight has been receiving a lot of interest from the Trojans. This past weekend's performance brought them to the table.

"I have been talking to their coaches for a while," Knight said. "I am not real sure what position they are recruiting me to play. I do like Troy a lot. I haven't visited them yet, but I plan on it soon."
