As of 12:30 PM today, the counter passed over to 83 days until Lehigh's home opener versus Central Connecticut State. The trouble is, on Lehigh's football roster there are two No. 84s - a fact I conveniently missed. We continue our day countdown towards the football season, but with our second No. 84.
That no. 84, sophomore WR Derek Knott.
Listed Height: 5'9"
Listed Weight: 165
Major: Arts and Sciences
Hometown: Orlando, FL
High School: Colonial HS, FL
Fun Fact: Derek's first career touchdown pass was a 19 yard touchdown vs. Monmouth, where he "took a short screen pass and zipped down the left side for a spectacular 19 yard touchdown run that left five or six Monmouth defenders eating his dust down the left sideline," I wrote last season. That electrifying run was good enough for Patriot League Rookie of the Week honors and LFN Underclassman of the Week honors, too.
2012 Stats: 9 games, 8 catches for 45 yards and 1 TD, 9 kickoff returns, 126 yards
2013: Expected to compete for a spot in the receiving rotation and kickoff return team.
