My hero is Aaron Rodgers. He is the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. He was born in California on December 2nd 1983. He used to play baseball when he was a kid. He played football at the University of California.

Aaron Rodgers was drafted by the Packers in the first round of the draft. His rookie year was in 2005. He sat for three years behind Brett Farve. Then in 2008 he got his first start with the Packers. The Packers are the only team that he has played for. In his third year of starting with the Packers he led his team to win seven games straight and led the team to win Super Bowl 45. They beat the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
