2016 Wuerffel Trophy Recipient
“Trevor Knight has consistently demonstrated selfless acts of community service throughout his college career,” said Wuerffel, whose own college and professional football career embodies the level of humanitarian and community service work the Wuerffel Trophy aspires to honor. “Being an inspiration to others on and off the field is what this trophy represents. We are honored to add Trevor to our distinguished list of Wuerffel Trophy recipients.”
Knight helped lead the Aggies to a 8-4 record in 2016, after transferring from the University of Oklahoma and earning his undergraduate degree in business administration. He received his masters degree in Human Resource management from the Mays Business School at Texas A&M. At Oklahoma he was a 5-time Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll member, 7-time Sooner Scholar and an Academics All-Big 12. After leading three mission trips to Haiti while at OU, Knight was the driving force to set up a similar mission trip at A&M his senior year. Additionally he has participated in countless local community service efforts with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center, local churches, schools and other organizations in Norman, Oklahoma and College Station, Texas. Knight is a two-time Wuerffel Trophy nominee.
