San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle has led the league in yards after the catch the past two seasons. He had 621 in 2019, not including postseason play. Fans are used to watching the All-Pro tight end catching passes and then embarrassing defenders on the way to significant gains downfield.

That didn't start in the NFL, college, or even high school. It turns out Kittle could embarrass defenders in Pop Warner football, as well.

Our friends over at TheSFNiners posted the following video from Kittle's Pop Warner days, which is a fun watch for any 49ers or Kittle fan. It originated from Kittle's wife, Claire, who posted it via Instagram.


Kittle, 26, is preparing to enter his fourth NFL season. The exciting NFL star recorded 85 receptions for 1,053 yards with five touchdowns through 14 regular-season starts in 2019.

Kittle has caught 216 passes for 2,945 yards with 12 touchdowns through his three NFL seasons. His receiving yards total since being drafted are the most by a tight end during the player's first three seasons.
