KELVIN KIRK - 1976.jpg


Kelvin Kirk, a wide receiver for the University of Dayton, was picked #487 by Pittsburgh Steelers in the 17th round. A wingback from the University of Dayton, Kelvin Kirk appropriately kicked off the first Irrelevant Week by missing his plane to California. A substitute Kelvin Kirk participated in the official welcoming ceremonies and motorcade until the real Kirk finally arrived in Orange County later that day. Kirk was cut during training camp, but later played seven years in the CFL. Kirk died of a heart attack in 2003.
