Football: Kadena topples Guam in a tune-up for Kinnick
KADENA AIR BASE, Okinawa – Wyatt Knopp finished the regular season Saturday the way he began it - under center for Kadena and helping lead the Panthers to their sixth win in seven regular season games, 14-0.
The junior filled in at quarterback when starter Eric McCarter was removed in the first quarter after a hard hit following an interception. Knopp returned to the lineup three weeks ago after missing four games with a chest injury suffered in Kadena’s lone loss, 34-33 to Nile C. Kinnick on Sept. 8.
“Wyatt stepped up and did a fantastic job,” coach Sergio Mendoza said.
