With two games left in the 2011 season, Gannon junior strong safety Khayree Connors-McChristian has tried not to think about it too much.
But it’s hard not to. And this is a good thing.
Last season, Connors-McChristian had a season-ending injury (broken right forearm) in Week 3 against Millersville.
This season, he switched from free safety to the “Superman” or strong safety position and has stayed healthy all season.
“Actually I just thought about that yesterday and I didn’t want to think about it too much because I still have two more games left, but this whole season I’ve been healthy,” he said. “Thank the Lord. Thank God. I’ve built my relationship up stronger with him and it’s benefited me in numerous ways.”
Connors-McChrstian has also been productive.
The 5-foot, 11-inch, 190-pound Connors-McChristian, a Sicklerville, N.J. native, is second on the team in tackles with 66 total stops. He has six tackles for loss, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
“Just being out there and playing every snap for Gannon University football is a blessing,” he said. “I’m just happy. I’m just happy and healthy. I’m trying to play the whole season and see what it feels like.”
