The North Webster Knights caught a glimpse at one of the state’s top athletes in Khamod Taylor of Rayville during their 42-27 loss in the Pineland Jamboree.

The senior quarterback was all over the field, making plays with his feet and finding open receivers deep downfield.

“That quarterback and receiver are two of the best you’ll see in the state of Louisiana,” head coach John Ware said. “If they don’t win it all in 2A, I’ll be very surprised.”

The Knights played well on offense, moving the ball throughout the night behind the offensive line.

“I thought the offensive line did very well,” Ware said. “We moved a lot of our backs around trying to find a good mix since we have some guys going both ways. Besides a couple fumbles we weren’t bad.”

The Knights special teams was solid with kicker Conroe McMullan showing off his big leg on a couple of punts and Devin White taking a kickoff 95 yards to the house.

“That’s a big part of the game,” Ware said. “We’re going to be good on special teams.”

The Knights must now get ready for the ground and pound attack of Haynesville for their season opener next week. The Golden Tornado defeated Minden 13-7 in game two of the Pineland Jamboree.
