It's not surprising that defensive lineman Andreas Knappe hasn't played early in his career with the Connecticut Huskies. He left his native Denmark to join the team, he has only been playing football for three years, and he's still learning the English language. With so much change in so short a time, there's a lot going against Knappe as a football player. But there's a lot going for him, too -- specifically, six feet, nine inches of talent, athletic ability that made him an excellent handball player in his homeland.
