Some college students spend the month of May traveling to far and exotic locations, whether it be for a study abroad or a vacation.
A group of Texas A&M athletes did something a little different. Trevor Knight, Myles Garrett and a host of other athletes spent some time in Haiti on a mission trip.
In all, 36 Aggies spent a week in Haiti back in May, and their experiences were captured and made into a video, via AggiesFBLife.
“Just believe in what we’re about to do, and it’s going to impact your life, one way or the other,” Knight told Brett Zwermann of the Houston Chronicle shortly before embarking on the trip back in May.
This was Knight’s fourth trip to Haiti, with the other coming during his time in Oklahoma. Knight transferred to A&M earlier this year after playing for the Sooners. Knight, Garrett and wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones will be representing the Aggies at next week’s SEC Media Days.
15 A&M football players went, as did 14 other A&M athletes from volleyball, soccer and equestrian. Among the football players who joined Knight were Garrett, defensive linemen Daeshon Hall and Daylon Mack, as well as wide receiver Josh Reynolds.
