Believe it or not, the athletes that the sports world cannot get enough of were once children too. Kids with dreams, incredible talents, topped with remarkable awkward phases and photos! A picture is worth a thousand words, but these childhood photos make us think of ‘nerdy’ and ‘embarrassing’ rather than ‘athletic’ and ‘agile! You won’t believe these athletes’ humble beginnings!
Tom Brady looked rather goofy as a kid, especially when sporting a baseball uniform and lugging a baseball bat on his shoulder. It’s a puberty miracle that this young boy would end up marrying the highest earning model on the planet! Brady has grown to be quite the catch himself in recent years. However, none of his athletic success would have been possible without his roots back in San Mateo, California, and that adorable chubby cheeked smile!
