Snoop Dogg has been cheering on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster since his days playing in the Snoop Youth Football League, where he was known as "SportsCenter."

Ahead of Smith-Schuster's first Pro Bowl, Snoop spoke to the Steelers about how proud he is of what the receiver has accomplished.

"I'm so proud of JuJu," the rapper said. "I've seen him play it as a kid in my league and I've seen him go in high school, Long Beach Poly High School, the school that I went to. Then I seen him go to USC, and now for him play for my favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and to have such a great season and to have such an impact on and off the field, I'm so proud of him.

"JuJu, you're doing a great job. You're making your mother proud, your family proud, you’re making all of us proud from the Snoop Youth Football League."

Smith-Schuster finished the season with a team-high 111 catches for 1,426 yards and seven touchdowns.
