Biography

  • 2016: 49ers NFL Salute to Service Award

Goldmine

  • Celek has a strong passion for the packaging industry, which he majored in at Michigan State, and plans to go into the business in the future. The growing industry looks to cut shipping costs on products and is commonplace in the food and medical fields. “There’s so many different areas you can get into, it’s crazy. I enjoy the science behind it. It was a great major for me to choose and the possibilities are endless.”
  • Along with fellow 49ers TE Vance McDonald and DT Tank Carradine, visited Haiti in conjunction with Convoy of Hope during the 2015 offseason, working together to teach healthy eating habits and sustainable agriculture techniques to local families. “We’ve been to an orphanage, we’ve been to a farm, we’ve been to schools. It’s a beautiful country and these are beautiful people. I’m glad I had this opportunity.”
  • Football runs in the bloodlines of the Celek family. Garrett’s older brother, Brent, plays tight end for the Philadelphia Eagles. Growing up, the brothers were constantly involved in athletics. “My dad was always pushing us just to be into sports. As long as we were doing something and we were having fun with it, he was the happiest guy in the world,” Garrett said. He didn’t begin playing football until high school, but Brent’s success became motivation for him. “He got a scholarship to Cincinnati my freshman year in high school,” Garrett said. “Right then I had my goals set. I’ve got to do what my brother did. Honestly, I’ve been trying to follow in his footsteps and because of him I’m here today. I wouldn’t be who I am without him.”

  • Along with some of his teammates, Celek headed to San Francisco in October of 2015 to kick off Fleet Week aboard the USS Somerset. During the afternoon on board, Celek participated in drills with the troops, took a tour of the ship, ate dinner with the crew and watched as some local Bay Area natives were sworn into the Navy. “It’s just good to give back to some of these guys because they do so much for us,” said Celek at the time. “We’re all really appreciative of who they are and what they’re about.” In 2016, Celek was honored as the 49ers Salute to Service Award winner for his efforts to honor and support U.S. service members, veterans and their families.
