Bears fans know Matt Forte as the player that has rushed for more than 8,000 yards during his NFL career, but few know the story behind the man.

In an episode that aired Tuesday night, ESPN’s “E60” chronicled Forte’s life from pee wee to the pros.

In the opening moments of the episode, Forte describes how Bears legend Walter Payton inspired his training regime.

The episode also details Forte’s relationship with his first coach: his father.

The best part was perhaps footage of Forte from his pee wee days – when he dominated the competition even more than he does now.
