Duhawk Spotlight: Zacchaeus Knighton (’23)

Zacchaeus Knighton (’23)

Major: Psychology 

Hometown: Tampa, Fl

Organizations: Football

What made me want to come to Loras was the community and how people on campus make you feel so welcomed and like family. It feels good to be a Duhawk and a part of a great football family and community.

I am looking to be a sports psychologist and work with athletes on mental health and help them with the ability to persevere through adversity.

What stands out to me the most while being at Loras is that it is a whole new experience, and you never know what is next. You might meet someone new or learn something new here every day.

Loras College Forward Thinking will be spotlighting Black students, including Zacchaeus, all month on Twitter.
