Darren Sproles turned 34 years old today. Happy birthday, Darren!
In honor of his birthday, the Philadelphia Eagles posted a great old video of Sproles absolutely dominating the competition during his Pop Warner football days. Watch below:

What a beast. Sproles doesn’t look so much shorter then than he does now, huh?
Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice had the great idea of adding calls from Merrill Reese (and other broadcasters) to the video. So if that interests you, you can also watch that below.
Sproles previously said that the 2017 season will be his last in the NFL. The veteran running back’s contract is up after this year. He did recently suggest he might not call it quits after all, however.
In any case, Sproles is a pleasure to watch, and apparently always has been. As Nick Foles once said, “that’s one special dude right there.”
