Notre Dame suffered a tough loss to Stanford on Saturday night that will likely keep the Irish out of the College Football Playoff. But Notre Dame still finished the regular season 10-2 despite a litany of injuries, and one of its best players posted a heartfelt message on social media following the loss.

Will Fuller, who leads the Irish with 1,145 receiving yards and 13 TD catches, clearly has a ton of respect for senior wide out Chris Brown and his fellow teammates. Check out what Fuller posted on Instagram to honor his peers:

At 10-2, Notre Dame looks like a good bet to make a New Year's Six bowl. It will be the last time this special group of Fighting Irish players suits up together, but you know Fuller and his teammates will give it their all.
