The 12th Man is switching to offense.
Former Texas A&M linebacker Cullen Gillaspia announced Wednesday he’s flipping over to the offensive side of the ball in Jimbo Fisher’s new Aggie program. The special teams star has been listed as a linebacker his entire Aggie career.
Gillaspia has been the program’s 12th Man representative for the entire 2016 and 2017 seasons. Serving mostly as a special teams ace, Gillaspia blocked two punts last season and was named Co-MVP of Special Teams in 2016.
It will be interesting to see how the fan favorite is utilized next season in Fisher’s offense. Imagine how loud Kyle Field will get if Gillaspia gets in the end zone for the first touchdown of his career next season.
Here’s the tweet Gillaspia sent out confirming the news:
CAN CONFIRM: I will be playing my senior season a fullback/H-back and I couldn’t be more excited. Time to get to work. #Gigem
