Recently Edwardsville High School (IL) Senior Ryan Knight made the decision to attend Greenville College. Knight wants to major in history education at Greenville, with a minor in coaching. He also plans on suiting up for the Panther football team.
Attending a school where he could celebrate his faith in God was high on that list, and he found that place in Greenville College.
“It’s a great place and somewhere where I can show my faith in God,” said Knight. “It’s close to home and I have family that lives up there, so I think it’s the place for me.”
“He will be sorely missed in our program, that’s for sure,” said EHS coach Mark Bliss. “His work ethic, his leadership, his attitude — he came into every practice and every game with the kind of attitude you want from your players.”
Knight was recruited as a linebacker by Greenville, and that’s right where he wants to be.
“That’s my favorite position,” he said. “That’s where I wanted to play.”
