It’s Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields!

Fields was born on March 5, 1999, in Kennesaw, Georgia. He attended Harrison High School in Kennesaw, where he excelled as a multi-sport athlete, playing football, basketball, and baseball.

He gained recognition as one of the top high school football prospects in the country. He was a highly sought-after recruit and ultimately committed to playing college football at the University of Georgia in 2017. However, he transferred to Ohio State University after his freshman season in 2018.

At Ohio State, Fields quickly made an impact as the starting quarterback. In his first season with the Buckeyes in 2019, he led the team to a Big Ten Championship and a spot in the College Football Playoff. He garnered numerous accolades, including being named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and finishing third in the Heisman Trophy voting.

Fields continued his success in the 2020 season, once again leading Ohio State to the Big Ten Championship and a College Football Playoff appearance. In the semifinal game against Clemson, Fields had a standout performance, throwing for six touchdowns despite suffering a rib injury earlier in the game. The Buckeyes ultimately reached the National Championship game but fell short against Alabama.

Following his impressive college career, Fields declared for the 2021 NFL Draft. He was selected by the Chicago Bears as the 11th overall pick in the first round. Fields quickly became a fan favorite in Chicago, and his arrival generated significant excitement among Bears fans.

As a rookie in the NFL, he showcased his skills and potential, demonstrating both his arm strength and ability to make plays with his legs. He faced some ups and downs during the season, as is typical for a young quarterback, but he showed promise and a strong work ethic.

He took a major step forward in his second season as he threw for 2,242 yards and totaled 25 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

2023 is shaping up to be a very important year for Fields.
