Since entering the NFL in 2005, Darren Sproles has consistently been one of the quickest, most elusive players in the league. In fact, he’s been a nightmare for opposing defenders to tackle for a lot longer than that.
Sproles turned 34 on Tuesday. His current team, the Philadelphia Eagles, took to Twitter to wish him a happy birthday. They posted a highlight reel of Sproles back in his Pop Warner days and let’s just say, we feel bad for the poor kids who were trying to tackle him.

With videos like this, it’s easy to see how Sproles is eighth in NFL history in all purpose yards.
