EverythingTop10 is proud to present, “The
Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About George Kittle!” #10. His father also played football. Kittle is an Iowa native, having moved there
at a young age from Wisconsin. The Kittle name has for the past decade or
so been popular in Iowa, and while George is clearly the more famous one now, his father
Bruce is also known in the area. He was an offensive lineman at Iowa University,
a four-year letterman and the co-captain of the Rose Bowl team of 1982. Bruce later served as Oklahoma University’s
tight ends/tackles coach. #9. Kittle comes from an athletic family. His father is not the only one who has had
success in sports. His mother Jan was a pretty good basketball
player. She was a star athlete at Winfield-Mount Union
and is in the Iowa Girls’ High School Athletic Union Hall of Fame. She was an All-American player, going on to
star at Drake and setting various records along the way. Kittle’s sister Emma played volleyball at
Iowa, while his cousin Henry also played tight end for Iowa, part of the same team he debuted
into. #8. He got offers from the Air Force and Navy. Skilled players of Kittle’s caliber often
get a barrage of scholarship offers from the best universities around. In Kittle’s case, the options went beyond
the usual suspects. He got offers from several of the big 12 schools,
but unlike most football prospects, he also had offers from the Air Force and Navy. He eventually ended up choosing Iowa, passing
on a chance to be a walk on and play under his father in Oklahoma. #7. Kittle attended three different high schools. When he got to high school, he was first enrolled
at the Iowa City West High School. He would then transfer to Cedar Falls High
School in Cedar Falls Iowa, before finally graduating at Oklahoma’s Norman High School. Many football players transfer schools in
high school as schools are looking to land the best prospects. In Kittle’s case, things worked out for
the best and he eventually returned home to The University of Iowa for college. #6. He was a two-sport star in high school. He was 19th on the Super 30 list of top football
prospects from the state of Oklahoma for his class. In his senior year, he had 370 yards and 6
receiving touchdowns for Norman High School. He, like many other NFL players, also dabbled
in other sports in high school. He was particularly focused on basketball
and was a standout player for the Newman Tigers. #5. Kittle is a huge fan of Panda Express. Responding to a tweet about consistency, he
stated that he has consistently eaten at Panda Express, describing the experience as a perfect
thing. A few fans went after him, jokingly denouncing
him on account of his culinary preferences. In his characteristic boldness, he doubled
down on this and still swears by Panda Express. His go-to order at the Chinese fast food restaurant
chain is chow-mein, orange chicken, fried rice, and shanghai steak. #4. He is a huge Game of Thrones fan. Kittle, like many football fans, is also a
huge fan of the fantasy TV series Game of Thrones. He is a pretty happy and positive person,
with fans and teammates often wondering what puts him down. The answer to that, it seems, would be Game
of Thrones. He once got quite agitated describing the
disappointments of the final season when a 49ers employee brought it up, leaving everyone
surprised. He has also admitted to enjoying Harry Potter
and Lord of the Rings. Sam and Frodo are his favorite Lord of the
Rings characters. He fell in love with them as a young boy,
when his father would read him the books and tell him stories of the mystical Aragorn. #3. Kittle has a huge Heath Ledger tattoo. Kittle’s love for TV and film is fanatical. He has a tattoo of Heath Ledger’s Joker
on his arm and has expressed his feelings about loving Mark Hamill’s Joker character. He stores classic Batman cartoons on his phone
for the road trips and often slaps the tattoo while on the field to get focused. This behavior comes from his time in Iowa
when he would put a piece of red tape on his arm, a sort of reset button that he would
often hit after a mistake. To him, football is as much a mental game
as it is a physical one, and the difference between him and other talented players is
often the small mental edges. #2. He is married to Clare Till. He married his long-time girlfriend Clare
Till in April of 2019. The two met at the University of Iowa, where
Clare also played basketball. Clare and Kittle have dated for a long time,
and when it finally came time to propose, he had the 49ers photographers organize a
fake photoshoot for him. He invited his girlfriend, proposed on the
beach, and the rest, as they say, is history. #1. Kittle has a unique pre-game routine. The night before every game, he likes to spend
up to three hours by himself. During this time, he meditates, takes a salt
bath, and visualizes how the game is going to be. According to his father, he has been doing
this since he was 5 years old. He believes the visualization makes the challenges
on game day easier to deal with. That’s all folks! Please leave a like if you enjoyed the video
