His favorite high school sports moment was beating rival Gainesville High in 8 innings last season.  Head coach Ron Brooks said that Greg’s determination and desire to get better is what a coach wishes for in every player. He came to the ballpark everyday with a smile and made a big impact on the program.  

Knox, who was a Scholar Athlete Award winner, will attend Santa Fe College in the fall.
