The Cardinals also said Kirk, who played at Texas A&M, is Manigo’s favorite player.
In the video, Kirk surprised Manigo with the news and a jersey. The video also showed a highlight of Manigo playing flag football.
“It was amazing. Just the opportunity to be able to come out here and do this and to have such a big fan at such a young age. I think I was just as nervous the moments leading up cause I know how big of a deal it is to be able to recognize somebody with the time he has and such a bright future. He definitely deserves this opportunity,” Kirk said.
Manigo will be heading to Miami with his parents to watch the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs.
