San Francisco 49ers stud tight end George Kittle recently was named No. 29 on the NFL’s top 100 list. Setting a single-season record for tight end yardage will do that. Kittle is such an easy player to root for. He has a lively personality and is seemingly always having a great time whether that’s on the field, or at a WWE event where you can see Kittle screaming and cheering as we do at NFL games.

At the University of Iowa, Kittle caught six passes for 133 yards during his first two years. During his last two seasons as a Hawkeye Kittle caught 42 passes for 604 yards and ten touchdowns. Kittle always worked his butt off in the weight room and at practice. Kittle credited Iowa’s tight ends coach Levar Woods for the help. Woods shared this on Instagram:

So you don’t have to squint, it says:

“Coach Woods, Thank you for helping me take advantage of every opportunity in my last two years of college. Without your guidance and friendship, I would not be where I am today. You helped me achieve one of my dreams. Always remember that you have an incredibly positive voice and infectious personality. I wish we could have played together. You will always ben an honorary tight end!”

Players never forget the guys that help them to where they are now. I love seeing genuine messages like this in public. Nothing wrong with showing love!
