OU football: Trevor Knight has a sounding board — his twin brother

Connor Knight, a walk-on tight end, has been a big help in getting Trevor through a season of ups and downs.

That's when Connor made his season debut on the kick return team. He was added to the unit after fullback Trey Millard suffered a season-ending injury against Texas Tech.

“I hated that Trey went down and everything, but seeing Connor run on that field for his first college snap, I was pumped,” Trevor said. “Every time we have a kickoff return, I know I'm about to go in, but my eyes are on him.

“Nothing makes me happier than watching him on the field.”

Connor hasn't yet lined up for an offensive play, but Trevor hopes that he'll complete a pass to Connor before long.

“Something like that would be awesome,” Trevor said. “A lot of people don't understand playing with your brother is really special, especially your twin. It's a dream come true for sure.”

There wasn't much to think about when Trevor started drawing big-time Division I attention in high school. Wherever one went, the other would follow.

“It never really was an option for us not to play together,” Trevor said. “He didn't get many big looks, but having him up here is something I wouldn't change for the world.”
