Saturday proved to be an exciting day for the EHS community as three former Knights made their NFL debuts in their preseason openers.
The day began with Jaylen Waddle '18 and his Miami Dolphins facing the Chicago Bears at noon on the NFL Network at noon. The sixth overall pick in last spring's draft made an early impact with an electric 23-yard punt return in the opening quarter.
In a remarkable twist of fate, Walker Little '17 and his Jacksonville Jaguars opened their preseason schedule by hosting Marvin Wilson '17 and his Cleveland Browns at 6:00 p.m. Both former Knights played extensive snaps, the highlight being a particular play late in the contest when Little picked up a key block on a blitzing Wilson!
This NFL season will prove to be an exciting one as we follow all three Knights throughout their rookie experiences.
