Coach Acors on Coach Knisley- "We are fortunate to have Coach Knisley join our program. Being a father of three sons and having served as a local youth pastor, he certainly has a ton of experience leading young men into the world. His knowledge of the game can only be surpassed by his love for it and his passion for helping our players accomplish their individual and team goals. We are certainly proud to have him be a part of Cougar Baseball."
