Trevor Knight Named Starter


Following the Maroon and White game on Saturday, Texas A&M wasted no time in naming Oklahoma transfer Trevor Knight the starter for the 2016 season. On Saturday, Knight threw for 282 yards on 25-36 passing (69.4%). He also added a passing touchdown and rushing touchdown to his stat sheet.

Trevor’s primary competition, Jake Hubenak, played sparingly on Saturday due to flu-like symptoms. His early departure from Saturday’s scrimmage provided an opportunity for Knight to make the most of the spotlight. And side by side, it’s hard to argue that Trevor was the best quarterback on the field.

Trevor gives the Aggies their first upperclassman quarterback since Ryan Tannehill in 2011. Since then the Aggies have had Johnny Manziel, Kenny Hill, Kyle Allen, Kyler Murray, and Jake Hubenak all earn starts in the 4 seasons since; all underclassman at the time. Texas A&M is counting on the experience and leadership of Trevor Knight to lead the Aggies into the 2016 season opener against UCLA.
