Although he started as a goalie in the youth travel leagues of New Jersey, he experimented with other positions on the soccer field throughout his JV and Varsity years at high school in Elmira and Albany, NY. During his college years at Rochester Institute of Technology, he returned to his passion of playing goalie for the strong intramural teams both indoor and outdoor. From then on, you could always find coach Knight in between the posts, truly believing that it is the best position on the pitch!!
