OU QB Trevor Knight: 'I never slid in high school'

by Ryan Aber Published: September 1, 2014

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said before the season that he wanted quarterback Trevor Knight to be smarter about giving himself up at times to avoid injury after Knight left two of his starts last season with injury.

Knight clearly took the lesson to heart, sliding several times in Saturday’s season opener.

“I never slid in high school,” Knight said. “I maybe slid one time my whole career in high school. And that’s just transitioning from being a playmaker to being a distributor. I took two hits all night the other night. That’s what we want. I don’t want to take a whole bunch of hits—get the ball into those three running backs’ hands and get out on the edge.

“Those receivers did a great job blocking it up. We just pitched it out on the bubbles and picked up 10-11 on each of those bubbles, so it was good for those guys.”
