After a rough finish to September and start to October, the Texas A&M football team bounced back admirably. After their October 2nd loss, the Aggie clamped up and played the best football that we’ve seen since… well, maybe ever.

Since Texas A&M dropped to 3-2 on the year, they knocked off No. 1 Alabama and proceeded to outscore their next two opponents by a total margin of 79-28, cementing themselves as one of the most dominating teams in the game.

In the part of the month that I am cherry-picking for the sake of making it sound like a great month, the Aggies were 3-0. They were not only a team to be feared — they showed drastic improvements within the past 30 days. These improvements came as a result of strong performances from a few players.

Today, I’m going to go over three Texas A&M football MVPs for the month of October.

Texas A&M Football October MVP No. 1: DL DeMarvin Leal

I’m giving DeMarvin Leal the short slide because quite frankly, his performances in October were not unexpected. We all know what the third-year versatile Aggie defensive lineman is capable of and he lived up to the hype over the past four games. Heck, he didn’t even need to play in all four games to impress.

In the three games that he did play in October, Leal recorded 4.5 tackles for loss and three sacks, deflecting a single pass. When he wasn’t reaching the backfield, opposing defenses were scrambling to keep him contained.

Leal will be a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft — all we can do is sit back and appreciate greatness while it’s in College Station.
