When Andreas Knappe came to the UConn football team, he was a raw specimen from Denmark with no set position. After playing two-three plays at defensive end in 2013, he was moved to tackle by head coach Bob Diaco and his staff.

At 6’8″, Knappe had the build and frame to play right tackle. He just didn’t have the skills to do it. Over the 2014 season for the UConn football team, Knappe improved each week and has continued that during spring practice so far.

With the UConn football offensive line still being relatively young, Knappe will once again be counted on in 2015.
