Special Olympics

Phil Knight


Phil Knight, 39, has been involved with Special Olympics for five years. An alumnus of the University of Sheffield, Knight now works at Next Gen Web Solutions. He returns for a second year to coach the Colorado Rapids Special Olympics Unified team.

Outside of work, Knight enjoys soccer, camping, cycling, and hiking but he says there are not many things he enjoys more than hanging out with some of the kids he coaches. With Special Olympics, he coaches soccer and cycling.

His favorite former Rapids player is Carlos Valderrama.
