Quintero, Knights Take Play of the Year!

Hunter Quintero's 45-yard touchdown catch-and-rumble took home over 600 votes to win the online voting for the Newschannel 6 High School Football Play of the Year!

Quintero's play took over 71% of the nearly 850 total votes cast to win.

In the play, which took place during the Knights' 58-8 Regional playoff win over Rockwall-Heath Fulton, Quintero took a pass from QB Danny Otto, then rumbled down the left sideline, leaving a trail of Fulton defenders in his wake.

"It was a nice pass from Danny, and it was good blocking from everybody on the team," said Quintero. "So it was just a nice all-around effort. I just got the ball and I thought I could do something with it."

The School, which has about 50 students in its high school in a given year, turned out a big number of votes. Quintero said he believes support didn't just come from the school.

"I guess it just means a lot of people were watching and liked the play enough to vote for it," Quintero said. "I'm just glad that we were able to win it."
