Heroes are examples to people in everyday life. They encourage people to get better and want to be like them. I have very many heroes, but only one is my favorite, and he pushes me to get better.

My hero is Russell Wilson, starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. He has done a lot through his career. He first played baseball in college and then transferred to Wisconsin to play football. He started as a quarterback for Wisconsin. He was drafted as a first-round pick for the Seahawks. He is one of three quarterbacks to throw at least 50 touchdowns during his first two seasons. He also has the most regular-season wins by a starting quarterback in his first three seasons.

He said, “I’m not telling you it’s going to be easy. I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it.”

To me, this means that your ride to greatness is not going to be easy. It’s going to be hard, and you’re going to face tough places on your ride. You can’t expect it to just be handed to you; you have to work for it. When the time comes, it will be worth it. You will feel good about yourself and know that you have come to that goal and greatness. Everyone has heroes of their own, and my hero is Russell Wilson.
