Adam Thielen has become a really good NFL wide receiver early in his career but not too long ago he was lighting up the Minnesota High School football circuit as well.

For this week's Throwback Thursday, watch highlights from Adam Thielen's high school career.

You clearly don't need HD highlights to see the potential of Thielen ever back then.

His height and speed at that age was on a different level than his peers and it does surprise me that he didn't get more looks from D1 schools before attending DII Minnesota State in Mankato, MN.

Thielen attended Detroit Lakes High School in Detroit Lakes, MN and was a life long fan of Vikings great Cris Carter.

Now living out his dreams, Thielen is carving out his own path in the National Football League with his home state team, the Minnesota Vikings.
