CHRISTIAN KNIGHT #2 IMPACT SOPHOMORE TO WATCH (Member of the 2013 Greene Turtle Lacrosse Club Team)
2. Christian Knight, Cornell G
In his debut season, Knight stopped 54%. No reason to think he won’t make a 5% improvement in his sophomore campaign. The shots should slow down. Knight should know how to watch film, better direct the defense and discover opponent tendencies. Nerves won’t be an issue as a sophomore. Knight has the tools to be a top five keeper — good size, solid fundamentals, strong hands, focus, poise and experience. He’s a keeper from a winning high school program who owns explosive legs but needs to move from pipe to pipe smoother and be more aggressive with his outlet passes.
