WNSP Athlete of the Week: Reagan Knight, McGill-Toolen

Each week at the start of the Road to the Alabama High School State Championships, Mark and Lee will feature an “Athlete of the Week” right here!

With our Road to the Alabama High School State Championships now fully underway, the second stop the Opening Kickoff made was at McGill-Toolen Catholic High School, where our Athlete of the Week is senior Reagan Knight!

Knight is a 6-time varsity letter recipient, 3-time All County, and 2-time 1st team all-state recipient.

Last season, she was named as the Crichton Optimist Club’s Player of the Week. She was a national league player for Union10 and was also rostered for Union 10FC’s women’s team

Not just a soccer player, Reagan last year was on the inaugural flag football team and represented Alabama at ODP regional camp.

Reagan is just as impressive off the field, as she is a member of the Ambassador Club, Spanish Club, Social Justice Club and Friends of Exceptional Children.

Reagan plans to attend Spring Hill College here in Mobile where she will play collegiate soccer and will major in Nursing.

She joined the Opening Kickoff on Friday morning and spoke about her senior year and what it means to her to be capping off her career as a Yellow Jacket pursuing a state championship.

“It means a lot. We’re putting everything on the line, we want this more than anyone else does. Being able to go all the way no matter what would just mean a lot,” Knight said.

Asked about what it means to be the Player of the Week, she said it means a lot to her as a defender to be recognized.

“It makes me really happy. Usually defenders don’t get noticed or recognized so I’m happy they’re finally getting their recognition,” she said.
