Kirk Gibson former Michigan State All-American wide receiver has been named one of 10 players and three coaches to the College Football Hall of Fame. Best known for being a Detroit Tiger plus his famous home run with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series. Before baseball Kirk caught 24 career touchdowns as a star receiver at Michigan State from 1975 to 1978.
Kirk earned first-team All-Big Ten and first-team All-America honors as a senior while helping lead the Spartans to a share of the 1978 Big Ten Championship and a No. 12 national ranking by The Associated Press. He set career highs in receptions (42), receiving yards (806) and touchdown receptions (7) in 1978. The 806 receiving yards in a single season established a school record at the time, breaking his own record of 748 he set as a sophomore.
“It’s an incredible honor to be selected to the College Football Hall of Fame,” said Gibson. “But I would be remiss if I didn’t recognize all those who were there to lift me up when I was down, or those who kicked me in the ass when it was warranted. I was blessed to have dedicated and supportive family, friends, teammates and coaches. This award is in honor of all of them and significant in illustrating the power of we.”
