Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones had himself a day in the NFC Championship Game. And just about everybody, including Kirk Herbstreit, is in awe of his performance.
Herbstreit had extremely high praise for the former Alabama wide receiver, calling him the “hardest working practice player I’ve ever seen in CFB.”
Men against boys there. Beast!!
Hardest working practice player I've ever seen in CFB.

And with plays like this, it’s easy to see that hard work has paid off.

As the Falcons beat the Green Bay Packers 44-21 to reach Super Bowl LI, Jones finished with 8 catches for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns. And he’s playing with an injured toe.
Not a bad way for the home team to close out the Georgia Dome era with a win.
