Trevor and Connor Knight were once sportscasters in the Bobcat Crew when they attended Stone Oak.

Trevor and his twin brother Connor, also an OU football player, were interviewed during the morning announcements by 5th grade sports reporters Jimmy Burk and Aidan Wollenzier.

Watching from the sidelines was their mother Tricia Knight, a first grade teacher at Stone Oak along withformer teachers who taught the boys when they attended Stone Oak.

Jimmy invited the OU players during the weekend when he encountered them at a gathering to which his family had been invited.
