When my dad texted me saying that former Michigan State/current Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins had visited a children’s hospital near his hometown in Michigan, my first thought was that I wasn’t surprised. Kirk Cousins is as classy and well-spoken as you will see in a professional athlete, which might surprise some seeing as he just completed his rookie year in the NFL. Kirk left MSU as the winningest QB in school history (27 wins) as the second ever three-year captain.  His numbers at State are beyond impressive.  Per MSUSpartans.com: Finished his career as Michigan State’s all-time record holder in passing touchdowns (66), passing yards (9,131), completions (723), passing efficiency (146.1 rating), total offense (9,004 yards) and 200-yard passing games (26) . . . ranks among the Big Ten’s all-time Top 10 in completion percentage (tied for sixth at .641), passing efficiency rating (seventh), passing yards (10th) and TD passes (tied for 10th). It isn’t the first time Kirk has been to the DeVos Children’s Hospital and definitely won’t be the last.  Simply put, Kirk Cousins is an All Pro in terms of class and generosity.
