Everyone in the town of Mentor, Ohio, knew that Mitchell Trubisky was going to be special.
Including young Mitchell Trubisky.
In a segment "Rolling With the Rookies," presented by Hyundai, Trubisky, his family and those in the town of Mentor reflect on the quarterback's path to the NFL. Trubisky was selected second overall by the Bears in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Among the stories shared by Trubisky's family, his mother said that Trubisky wrote for a school assignment in first or second grade that he wanted to "play in the NFL and be a football star."
In the video Trubisky admits that his first word was "ball," that he threw perfect spirals at a young age and had the competitive drive with his three younger siblings that helped mold him into the star quarterback in the town of nearly 47,000.
"Now I'm right here sitting, looking at my dream," Trubisky says, "and for me it just makes me want to work that much harder to keep going and keep reaching, keep striving for greatness."
