Ed Pope

Pope was a tenacious receiver who provided toughness and a big target on the outside for the Ag’s. Although he’ll always be remembered for torching the Arkansas Razorbacks back in 2014, the highlight that’ll always be played in the Aggie’s hall of fame is the receivers catch against the Crimson Tide back in 2013. Pope finished out his Aggie career this past season and is now training for an opportunity to play at the next level.
