Knight’s soccer experience dates back to his playing days at Wallace State (2007-‘09), followed by two years as an Athletic Trainer with the University of Alabama women’s soccer program (2012-’13), and time with the Portland Timbers Academy (2014) where he designed and partook in soccer specific rehabilitation. At the University of Oregon, Knight served as the Athletic Training Coordinator for the university’s PE/Recreation and Club Sports departments. Additionally, he oversaw and assisted in the daily care and management for the Oregon Ducks football and women’s lacrosse programs.
