In what was likely his last game in an Aggie uniform, Christian Kirk made it one to remember. He reminded us why he has been every Texas A&M fan’s favorite player over the course of the last three seasons. He is nothing short of incredible to watch.
Kirk is projected to be a first round draft pick in the 2018 NFL draft. With the emergence of many top draft prospects sitting out their respective bowl games, many people speculated that Kirk would do the same. However, Kirk was very adamant that he would play in the Belk Bowl. And he played well.
In the minds of many, Kirk improved his already high draft stock with his performance against Wake Forest. He was absolutely zoned in, catching practically everything thrown in his direction. He finished the game with 13 receptions for 189 yards and three touchdowns.
Captain Kirk showed off his versatility as a receiver as well. His productivity came in a variety of different ways. Whether it was on screen passes, short, intermediate, or deep routes, or on the sideline or over the middle, this guy got it done.
I can’t wait to watch this guy play on Sundays. If this was in fact his last game in the maroon and white, I personally want to thank Kirk for all of the highlight plays he’s provided for us.
