Jake Knott: The Definition Of "ALL IN"

Jake Knott: Also good at rocking "The People's Eyebrow" - Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE

A shoulder injury is going to end Jake Knott's Iowa State career, but not the memories he's created.

It's easy to be cynical about football players. The arrests, the me-first attitudes, the entitled work ethics (or lack thereof). But think of the exact opposite of that player, and you have Jacob "Allin" (seriously, check the ISU directory) Knott.

Knott is a success story that Paul Rhoads can sell to fans, recruits and the media. More than any other player on the team, Knott exemplifies what Rhoads wants out of his players. The first player that ever committed to Coach Rhoads, he was lightly recruited out of high school, but worked hard every single day at Iowa State, moving from a special teams contributor his freshman year to ending his career as an All-Big 12 First Team selection and the 6th leading tackler in Cyclone history. To cap it all off, he'll end as the Big 12 defensive player of the week, and the leading tackler in the Big 12.

Never once did he get in trouble, instead choosing to spend his time off the field doing community service, resulting in an AFCA Good Works Award nomination. and helping underclassmen such as Jeremiah George become the next elite linebacker for Iowa State.

Hard worker, quick learner, tough as nails, and an incredible leader. What more could you ask for?

It's been a pleasure watching you at Iowa State, Jake. Thanks for everything you've given the team, the fans, and the community.
