Knight’s time again at UNH

DURHAM – Amherst native Trevor Knight, in his first season as starting quarterback for the University of New Hampshire football team, came on strong as last year progressed.

Head coach Sean McDonnell and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Carty are looking for continued improvement from the junior as spring football concludes, preseason camp opens in late July and the 2017 season begins.

“It’s the good thing about playing a young quarterback,” Carty said. “He got a lot of game-time reps last year. He got put in a lot of situations that were good for his development and good for our team’s development. Hopefully we can keep him healthy and keep him progressing the right way throughout spring and throughout fall camp. I don’t see any reason we shouldn’t expect a very good season from Trevor.”

Spring football is nearing a close and wraps up with the annual Blue-White Spring Game on Saturday at noon in Wildcat Stadium. An Open House that will include tours of the stadium will be held in conjunction with the Spring Game.

McDonnell has been happy with Knight’s play so far this spring.

“Trevor’s been good,” the head coach said. “I’m always wanting more from him, as you do from every starting quarterback. When he’s had time to throw the football, has had time to get it off, he knows where it’s going and has been accurate.”
