My hero is Aaron Rodgers. I've been a Green Bay Packers fan since i was little and i've looked up to Rodgers forever. He was Born on December 2, 1983 he lived  in Chico, California. He was always a 49ers fan since he was little he had excelled in baseball and football at a young age and played football in high school where he did tremendously well. He was expected to go to a good college and get a scholarship for football But instead he went to Butte Community College on an academic Scholarship. He did great academically and athletically and earned a full ride scholarship to UCLA in his junior year of college. He did great there. He was told by a teacher "You will never be a football player." Well, they were wrong. He went no.24 in the first round to the Green Bay Packers.

I think he's a hero because of his story to get to the NFL as previewed and said in the beginning he was ignored even though he was great. He was a diamond in the rough that people chose to ignore until he was drafted to the Packers where they got a jewel and more. His story inspires me to do good and work hard because it will eventually pay off. It tells me to keep going and not give up and that's why I think he's a hero.
