These five Chicagoans prove they not only go with the flow—they set the pace.
The Bears wide receiver
scored a touchdown in Chicago’s last game of 2018, and set two postseason franchise records (10 receptions, tied with Matt Forte, for 143 yards)—a big bright spot in a season that ended too soon.
Playing an even bigger role in the team’s momentum next year, and continuing to build his Within Reach Foundation, which helps promote literacy
“To come off the injury I had [Robinson sat out the 2017 campaign] and play a full season was big. I tell guys all the time: When you say you love the game of football, when you say the game means so much to you, at some point, all that is going to be tested. When you go through an injury like that, you have to look at the glass as always half-full. And positivity creates many more outcomes. To be able to have an impact—that’s what I try to bring to the table. I established the Within Reach Foundation a few years ago. We have a gala, and I donate money per catch. The main thing I want to do is create reading rooms in Chicago Public Schools, to give kids a place where they feel comfortable and to give them confidence. I think anybody with confidence is a dangerous person.”
