Harry Kane's Blistering Form Continued Over The Summer
Any casual fan knows that Harry Kane has been a goalscoring machine since becoming Tottenham's main striker during the 2014-15 season. At just 24, he has scored 78 Premier League goals, and many pundits believe he has a legitimate chance of challenging Alan Shearer's record of 260 goals in the EPL.
Of course, Kane needs to stay healthy and in top form, but so far he's keeping pace (Shearer scored 81 goals in his first three EPL seasons, although he was one year older than Kane when he broke in to the division).
Like most elite players, Kane enjoyed a relaxing and luxurious summer vacation. His ability on the field has always been first class, but he's now proving that he's a stand up family man who can vacation with the best of them.
Here's a look at the summer that was for Harry Kane.

Kane kicked off the month of July with a bang, proposing to his longtime girlfriend Katie Goodland. Well played, sir.
Kane's clearly a devoted family man, but he still finds time to work on his golf game.

Whether he played nine or the full 18, Kane didn't get carried away. A day later he's reunited with his daughter Ivy Jane.

That's an incredible week from Kane. But there's one more tweet that bears mentioning. Going back to June, Kane put on a wide receiver's clinic on some sandy beach in paradise.

Grainy footage but make no mistake, Kane is a polished route runner. He breaks outside to create some separation but that cut only really sets up a dazzling inside move. Kane pivots and then high points the ball, presumably falling forward and into the end zone all while maintaining possession. Despite the coverage playing a solid 20 yards off him, Kane finds a way to score.
Family man and first class finisher. That's the Harry Kane we now know well.
