The Salute Hall of Fame

Kansas State basketballDick Knostman (1950-1953)

Back when players could only play 3 years, Dick Knostman came to K-State from Wamego, started for 3 years, and finished in the top 10 each time. He helped lead the 1951 team to K-State’s only national championship game appearance, and was named an All-American.

Over his 3 years at K-State the team went 61-13, and was the 2nd player drafted to the NBA from K-State. There’s a reason his number 33 is hanging in the rafters of Bramlage Colisum, and why now he’s a member of The Salute’s Hall of Fame.


DeMarcus Robsinson, Charles Jones

This week’s award was a split, which seems fair given these guys were splitting time getting carries from the backfield. DeMarcus Robinson got the start and Charles Jones scored 2 touchdowns out of the wildcat. Headed into a year in which everyone seemed to be concerned about the running game, Robinson and Charles gave us plenty of reason to assume good things are coming.
