Familiar face

In this week's Sports Illustrated, Louisiana high school football fans will see a familiar face - running back/defensive back Joe McKnight of John Curtis High School in River Ridge.

Fans in the area are familiar with McKnight on a couple of fronts. Last year after Hurricane Katrina hit, McKnight evacuated to Shreveport and played a couple of games with the Evangel Eagles before moving back to New Orleans and finishing the year with John Curtis. In doing so, McKnight became one of the few players (if not the only) in state history to play on two state championship football teams in the same season.

If Shreveporters missed his games with Evangel, they saw his highlight-film game in the state Class 2A championship at Independence Stadium.

McKnight will be back in the area again on Friday night when John Curtis plays at Homer.

If you haven't seen McKnight play, he's worth the price of admission. If you need to be convinced, pick up a copy of Sports Illustrated.
