Elco's Horst, Knight to play college football
When National Signing Day comes around next week, Elco football players Tyler Horst and Kyle Knight will be putting their signatures on documents that will allow them to continue their careers at the Division II college level.
Standout running back Horst is headed to Bloomsburg University to compete for the fullback job, while dynamic quarterback Knight will battle for the signal calling duties at Lock Haven.
Horst ran for 680 yards and 7 touchdowns in the fall, while hauling in 15 passes for 160 yards. Knight, meanwhile, bounced back nicely from an ACL injury that sidelined him as a junior to throw for 1,582 yards and 15 touchdowns, while also rushing for 842 yards and 7 more TDs.
