Notre Dame football: When Golden Tate shot his shot with Taylor Swift

Long before pop icon Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce became an item there was another football player after her young heart.

Or at least her attention.

Flashback to 2009 when Swift’s brother was attending Notre Dame. It was the freshman year of former Fighting Irish receiver Robby Toma and the Hawaii native recently remembered a time that Swift showed up at a Notre Dame practice.

It was at that practice that one of the best receivers to ever come through Notre Dame tried to get Swift’s attention. Toma and none other than Golden Tate remembered the moment on social media earlier this week – check it out below.

To which Tate responded:

It wound up that Tate’s move didn’t ultimately have “Love Story” written all over it but props to the man for shooting his shot.
