The 23-year-old Chargers quarterback has just made his name in the NFL since he was drafted as a No. 6 overall pick. However, he is living exactly what he had hoped for when he was in the fourth grade.

His predictions of being a football player and living in Los Angeles have been proven to be true since the day he got drafted by the Chargers. Evidently, his prediction for his desired height has gone wrong, as he hoped to be 6’3 when actually he came to be 6’6.

Well, it’s clearly not his prediction skills that have played out to be true, it is but his dedication and discipline to the sport that made him the a player he is today.
