Thomas Dziagwa, Kevin Knox‘s close friend and former teammate at Tampa Catholic, knows well that Knox’s appearance doesn’t tell the whole story.
“If it comes to video games or basketball, he’s one of the most competitive people I know,” Dziagwa said. “It could be tic tac toe and he’s going to try to win. It could be a crossword puzzle and he’s going to try to finish it first.”
On the court, Knox accepted whatever role he was given as long as it ended with a victory.
“All he cares about is winning, and that’s the type of teammate he is,” said Dziagwa, who now plays for Oklahoma State.
