The Son of Bahamian Tennis Legend Is Headed to Atlanta

Southlake, TX, USA. Graham Knowles, the son of the legendary Bahamian tennis player Mark Knowles will take the field for the Ramblin’ Wreck next season. 

The gridiron football quarterback, son of former number one Doubles Tennis player Mark Knowles, and winner of three of the four grand slams, New Providence-born Mark Knowles, signed a National Letter of Intent on Tuesday according to his high school team’s Twitter page.

The quarterback, who is listed at 6’6” and 220 pounds, threw for 3195 yards and 21 TDs against only 4 INTs for Texas powerhouse Southlake Carrol, which boasts a rich lineage of quarterbacks including former NFL quarterbacks Greg McElroy and Chase Daniel and University of Texas’s Qunn Ewers, who is gunning for a national title next week. For his outstanding season, he was named district offensive player of the year. 

The statuesque pocket passer led Carrol to the State 6A D2 finals where they fell to another team from the Dallas area DeSoto 45-38. In that game, Knowles threw for 309 yards and 2 TDs. He will join a Georgia Tech team making gradual improvements, improving their record to 6-6 this season, making their first Bowl Game since 2018. 

He’ll have another Texas gunslinger, rising junior Haynes King taking snaps ahead of him on the depth chart this year. King has a sublime season himself at Tech, throwing for 2,755 yards and 26 TDs against 15 INTs.

King may be entrenched as the starter coming back but without much depth behind him, Knowles has a chance to take backup reps the moment he sets foot in Atlanta. Knowles has balled out in Texas’s notoriously tough high school football league. Look for him to do the same in the ACC.
