Knappe, Mikal Myers, Shirreffs and Walsh will lead the Huskies in 2016.
As 2016 season is near, there was one more honor from the 2015-16 academic year.
Redshirt junior QB Bryant Shirreffs has moved his game forward during fall camp.
Huskies visted a children's hospital and bagged groceries for the hungry.
The event was a great night to celebrate a great season.
