How would your child like to take Chicago Bears’ center, Roberto Garza, to school for show and tell? Thanks to the folks at Verizon Wireless, the official wireless provider of the Chicago Bears, and the NFL, your little football fan could win that opportunity.
The son of Mexican immigrants, Garza was encouraged to join the Marines after high school. A Marine recruiter interested in Garza ridiculed his desire to play professional football, allegedly stating that, “Mexicans do not play in the NFL.”
Now a 12-year NFL veteran, Garza was selected as a Pro Bowl alternate with the Bears in 2011.
