WATCH: Rob Gronkowski Was a Football Freak in High School Too

Gronk. Pimp Daddy Gronk. Gronkosaurus Rex. 

Whatever you call him, Rob Gronkowski has proven to be a force on the football field. Over his first seven seasons in the NFL, the New England Patriots tight end has racked up 405 receptions, 6,097 yards and 69 touchdowns. The 27-year-old is also a four-time Pro Bowl selection, three-time First Team All-Pro and 2014 Comeback Player of the Year.

Even the best defensive players on the planet have trouble containing the ultra-athletic 6'6" playmaker. Flashback to high school and the story remains much of the same -- you can't stop "Gronk", you can only hope to contain him. Check out this highlight video from his younger football days. You won't be disappointed.

Speaking as one outside the New England area, Gronk could've been an all timer...the best ever at his position. Much like with Terrell Davis, however, injuries ruined that for him, and the Pats are already planning the near future of his position as Brady chases the all time yardage record.

What a weapon....when healthy.

Yes, you never want to see injuries derail anybody. I just hope he makes the best decision for his own future. There is a life after football, of course.
