in just his second season as a pro http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-k_waun-williams-jersey , George Kittle can only get better, and learning from the best isn’t a bad route to do so. And you can’t get someone much better to learn about the tight end position than former Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez—he might get elected to the Hall of Fame this weekend. San Francisco 49ers tight end coach John Embree was the latest guest on Matt Maiocco’s 49ers Insider Podcast and said he set a few days up to where Kittle could train under Gonzalez—the way Embree wants: 49ers coaches can’t work with players in the offseason due to the collective bargaining agreement, but players and former players can. Embree coached Gonzalez during his time in Atlanta and Gonzalez knows how Embree wants things and what to go over with Kittle. This can give Kittle a good idea of what to train for in the offseason and to show up at OTAs and training camp on the same page as his coach. Kittle spoke on the training as well in a recent chat with Damon Bruce and said he’s all ears: Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce broke the record for single season receiving yards by a tight end, in Week 17 of the 2018 season. Approximately an hour later, Kittle broke Kelce’s record in receiving yards to set things at 1,377. Defenses no doubt are going to find a way to clamp down on Kittle for 2019 given his prior productivity. With Gonzalez’s help, perhaps he can stay above the competition and break a few more records while he’s at it. Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and comedian Dave Chappelle are among eight people being honored by Harvard University for their contributions to black history and culture, the university announced Thursday.All eight recipients of the W.E.B. Du Bois Medal will be honored Oct. 11 by the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard."The medal honors those who have made significant contributions to African and African-American history and culture, and more broadly, individuals who advocate for intercultural understanding and human rights in an increasingly global and interconnected world," the Hutchins Center said.Kaepernick, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, created a firestorm when he began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest police brutality and social injustice. He has more recently been the centerpiece of an advertising campaign by Nike.He has donated and helped raise millions of dollars for organizations fighting social injustice, and founded the Know Your Rights Camp.Chappelle is a writer and producer who has appeared in several movies K'Waun Williams Jersey White , hosted his own show on Comedy Central and earned a Grammy and two Emmys.The other honorees are Kenneth Chenault, chairman and a managing director of General Catalyst; Shirley Ann Jackson, president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; Pamela Joyner, founder of Avid Partners, LLC; psychologist and author Florence Ladd; Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative; and artist Kehinde Wiley."Emerging from a variety of backgrounds and professions, each represents the quest for knowledge, freedom of expression, and pursuit of truth that are foundational to black history and culture, and that were foundational to Du Bois as a thinker and activist," said Henry Louis Gates Jr., director of the Hutchins Center.
