Jack of the Week: Tim Knicky

By Coleman Swierc

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -  Tim Knicky is feasting in 2008. Second in the nation in sacks and 4th in tackles for loss, Knicky is racking up the attention.  And it almost never happened.

"I did not even know if I was going to play college ball," Knicky says.  " And now here at S.F.A., we are going to fight for a conference championship.  I could not be happier."

Knicky is happy.  Quarterbacks are not.

"I have been hit by Tim Knicky a few times," S.F.A. quarterback Jeremy Moses says.  "And it is not like a hit, he cuts you in half."

The former walk on has made himself so good, that his teammates just can't resist.

"Tim Knicky is a greek god," S.F.A. defensive end Greg Carlson says.  "If I had a kid, his name would be tim knicky, I would change my wifes name to Tim Knicky, the dogs name would be Tim Knicky.  I love tim."

Everybody loves Knicky, except opposing quarterbacks and Chuck Norris.

"If Tim Knicky and Chuck Norris got into a fight, Chuck Norris would cease to exist," Carlson says.
