B.J. Knox signs with Campbellsville University

Mason County senior B.J. Knox, the 8th Region Player of the Year, signed today to play golf at Campbellsville University.

"I'm just blessed for this opportunity; I'm just ready to take advantage of it," Knox said.

"We're excited to get him, we're just hoping he can take us to the next level," Campbellsville coach Jim Ward said.

Knox was a four-year starter for the Royals and played in the state tournament all four years. 

He tied for 19th place in the state tournament his junior year when the Royals finished third in the state.

Knox was named all-region his sophomore, junior and senior seasons.

He won two tournaments and had seven top five finishes his senior season.

"I really think that he's just scratched the surface, I really do," Mason County coach Chad Mefford said. "He's a really talented kid."

Mefford took over as the Royals' coach last season and said Knox was great for him.

"He was a hard worker. He was always at practice, worked on his game, set a good example on the course for the other kids," Mefford said.

Knox said he plans to be a business major.
