If you still doubt that Aaron Donald is one of the best American football players in the world, then have a look at the NFL Top 100 list, and you will see that his name is written on the first line.
Yes, he tops 100 NFL best players, but what did he do to occupy the rightful place at the sports Olympus?
He was born in Pittsburgh, PA in the family of a businessman Archie Donald and a homemaker Anita Goggins. In his young years, Aaron was quite plump and lazy. But he built a great stature after he started to workout with his father in a gym, which they had created in the basement of their house.
Aaron began to play American football at a high school and received several accolades in his teens. After that, he got three scholarship offers (just three, not more, because of his height, which is not so impressive for an American football player) and preferred the University of Pittsburg to two others.
He continued to practice football as a college student. His results looked impressive and were proved by a string of awards, including the Defensive Player of the Year. In 2014 he was signed by St. Louis Rams and officially started his career.
Since then Aaron has been playing American football. He plays as a football defensive tackle, and this position is considered as one of the most important and most complicated in American football. But Aaron puts lots of efforts to do the best for his team on the field.
In 2018 he signed the $137 million deal with the Los Angeles Rams, which became the most lucrative in the football history for 24 hours, and then it was exceeded by another defensive tackle, Khalil Mack. In any case, he remains the best player for the wide circle of his fans.
