Teammate describes Knox as a key role to success of team, one of offense’s main threats
By J.P. Hajjar ’16
Cade Knox ’16 starting quarterback for the Broncos’ varsity football team, has always been involved with sports since he was a kid.
“Growing up I played basketball, baseball, soccer, I played them all,” Knox said. “Football was always my favorite though.”
He said his biggest goal for this season is quite simple.
“That’s easy. Win state,” Knox said.
He hasn’t done that yet, but has made many headlines with his on-field performance.
Knox also said he likes to challenge himself in the classroom as well as on the field.
“I am taking AP calculus AB, Honors Physics, AP English and Honors Spanish IV,” Knox said.
Knox recently received the Arizona Cardinals Player of the Week after a performance of five touchdowns, including a 61-yard touchdown run.
Knox said that if he had any superpower he would choose flying over invisibility, “no doubt.”
What many people don’t know about Knox is that he is not a stereotypical jock.
“My favorite book is ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ and my best friend is Sean Roberton (’15),” Knox said when asked what are a few things people do not really know about him.
Connor Murphy ’16, another friend of his, said that Knox is a tremendous player and has really brought a lot to the team.
“He seems to make plays left and right,” Murphy said. “I think it is safe to say he is one of the main threats that we have on this team, without a doubt.”
Murphy said that Knox has been a huge factor in the Broncos eight-game winning streak in September, October and November.
“He knows how to keep the offense moving down field and that really helps us out on both sides of the ball,” Murphy said.
Murphy said Knox is a great friend, a good character to have around and just a good guy in general.
