The Texas A&M Aggies easily handled visiting Prairie View A&M Saturday afternoon, dispatching the neighboring program 67-0 and getting some valuable work in for their depth chart.
As is the case each week, we will hand out our Game Balls to those players who stood out the most for the Aggies win or lose. We keep the number to five each week, although some weeks we may have to leave some off of the list.
Christian Kirk - The sophomore receiver flashed some more of what made him a freshman All-American in 2015 in the Aggies win over Prairie View. Kirk finished his day with an impressive five catches for 106 yards, including touchdown receptions of 34 and 64 yards within 30 seconds of game time.
Shaan Washington - Led by a huge first half, and capped by a good finish in his action early in the second half, senior Washington continued his solid play early this season. He finished with only five total tackles, tied with Justin Evans for the team lead, but had a forced fumble, a quarterback hurry and five pass breakups.
Trevor Knight - The senior play called had some impressive numbers on the day, finishing 21 of 37 for 344 yards with 3 passing touchdowns. He also racked up 84 yards and another score on the ground. Other than the one interception in the end zone, Knight managed the game well which is what they will need from him most moving forward.
Justin Evans - Evans and teammate Armani Watts continued their impressive physical play in the back end of the defense, both dishing out hits to receivers in the secondary. As mentioned before he was tied for the most tackles on the team with 5 but also had a couple of pass breakups as well during his time in the game.
Keith Ford - Ford put in a good days work in the Aggies dominant win, racking up 62 yards and two scores on just eight touches. He also had a 40 yard reception.
