TJC Player Earns National Honor

TJC sophomore wide receiver Johnny Knox earned the NJCAA Football Offensive Player of the Week honor for last week's games.

Knox is from Channelview High School. In his second game of the season, Knox caught four passes for 188 yards help lead Tyler Junior College to an upset victory over 2nd-ranked Trinity Valley Community College 26-23 on September 2. His first reception came on the second play of the game and was good for a 75 yard touchdown. Knox again set the offensive tone for Tyler in the second half as he scored on a 66 yard touchdown reception on Tyler's first play of the third quarter.

In Tyler's 2006 season opener against Hutchinson Community College he caught five passes for 113 yards and a touchdown.
