Former Clemson standout and current Houston Texans wide receiver Nuk Hopkins was back in his hometown over the weekend and he handed out hundreds of school backpacks for local kids in Central, S.C.
Hopkins played his high school football at local Daniel high school and grew up in Central.
He had 111 catches for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns last season and was named a Pro-Bowl starter for the first time in his career (alternate last season).
His 2015-2016 season was remarkable in a Texans' historical perspective as he had the third-most catches, fourth-most receiving yards and fourth most receiving touchdowns. He was also the first player in NFL history to have 100-yard receiving games with four different starting quarterback in a single season (Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates and Brandon Weeden).
He is the second player in NFL history along with Randy Moss to record 3,500 receiving yards before the age of 24. He has accrued an amazing 239 catches for 3,533 yards (14.8 ypg) and 19 touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2013.
