It was just last year that Tommy Tremble was putting on a show at Notre Dame as his blocking ability drew more attention than his clear ability to catch the football. It was something else Tremble did in his second career NFL game Thursday night that set an NFL record of sorts.

Tremble, now playing for the Carolina Panthers, scored his first NFL touchdown on a seven-yard run that stretched the Panthers lead to 14-6 over the Houston Texans. With it Tremble became the youngest player in the history of the league to run for a touchdown as a tight end as he passed Rob Gronkowski with the feat.

The Panthers improved to 3-0 with a 24-9 victory with help from Tremble who scored the first of what is hopefully many touchdowns in the NFL.
