Trevor Knight (born October 3, 1993) is an American football quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas A&M Aggies. After leading Oklahoma to an 8–5 record in the 2014 season, he lost the starting job in an open quarterback competition to Texas Tech transfer Baker Mayfield prior to the 2015 season. On January 4, 2016, it was announced that Knight would transfer to Texas A&M University.
Knight attended Ronald Reagan High School in San Antonio, Texas. While at Ronald Reagan High School, he played for the football team. As a senior, he threw for 2,092 yards and 27 touchdowns with 943 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns. He was ranked as the sixth best dual-threat quarterback recruit by the Rivals.com recruiting network. Trevor has a fraternal twin brother, Connor, who is a longsnapper/fullback for Oklahoma. They played alongside each other for Trevor's entire time with the Sooners.
He was named MVP of the 2014 Sugar Bowl when he helped lead Oklahoma to a 45–31 upset of two-time reigning national champion Alabama. Knight threw for 348 yards and four touchdowns in a record-setting performance.
On December 11, 2015, it was announced that Knight had obtained a full release from his scholarship and will explore his options to transfer to another school. Despite his intentions to transfer, Knight indicated he would remain a member of the team at least until the completion of Oklahoma's 2015 season.
