Awesome video goes viral of Joe Burrow’s youth football days

Joe Burrow on the field

Joe Burrow came a long way to get to this year’s AFC title game. Now we are getting a glimpse into the humble beginnings of his journey.

Karin Johnson of WLWT in Cincinnati shared an awesome video to Twitter on Wednesday of the Bengals star Burrow’s youth football days. Johnson met one of Burrow’s old coaches, who had saved footage from Burrow’s third and fourth grade years.

Check out the video, where you can see Burrow uncorking some impressive throws and running past defenders in the open field.

The former No. 1 overall pick Burrow is now 25 years old. Third and fourth graders in the United States are around nine or ten years old, putting the date of this footage around the mid-2000s.

Burrow, the NFL’s completion percentage leader this season, has already produced some great highlights at the professional level. But it turns out he was churning out highlights nearly a decade-and-a-half before that even.
