Aaron Rodgers

by Dominick from Ft. Lupton

My hero is Aaron Rodgers, the Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. He was born December 2 1983 in Chico in Butte county, California.There, he attended Pleasant Valley High School and played starting Quarterback and set team records. He attended college at the University of California, Berkley and led them to win the Insight bowl against Virginia Tech. He was then drafted to play for the Green Bay Packers in 2005. He played as backup for Brett Favre until 2007.

Aaron Rodgers is mostly a role model to people. He is an average guy that got into football. He did not get everything he wanted. He did not start out rich. He just tried and tried until he was the best he could be. Aaron Rodgers still inspires people today to try their hardest to become the best that they can be. He plays with kids to help them perfect their skills. Aaron is also an upstanding citizen, doing his part in the community.

I choose Aaron Rodgers because he is an inspiration and a good role model. He tries his hardest even though defeat looks close and he does not stop trying till it's all over. He is also a model American for his citizenship and his determination. He is a hero for everyone who believes in him and he does not let them down.They showed America in Super Bowl 45 that even the little guy can win.
