Duke QB Thomas Sirk given 6th year of eligibility

-

Duke quarterback Thomas Sirk had his season ended prematurely after suffering an Achilles injury over the summer.

On Monday, the university announced Sirk has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA. Sirk had previously missed the 2013 season after tearing his right Achilles tendon.

Now, he will have one final opportunity to make his impact on the Blue Devils program.

I’m so grateful to have a sixth year to continue my dream of playing college football and, academically, work towards another degree from Duke University,” Sirk said in a statement.

Last season, Sirk started in 12 games, throwing for 2,625 yards, 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Sirk added a team-best 803 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground. It was the second-highest single season yardage total in Blue Devils history.

Throughout his career with Duke, Sirk has thrown for 2,692 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
