Bears D’ puts Heart Stoppers on display during Thursday’s Camp

How would you like to go to work on a weekday morning and have an idea batted down by one of the top five players in the National Football League in 2019? That was the case Thursday morning when, after a day’s rest, QB Mitch Trubisky dropped back on the very first snap of the morning and Khalil Mack busted through the offensive line on a routine pass play to tip his throw for an interception. Fans in attendance went wild as Mac celebrated with the defense.

The defense continued its dominance at Olivet today towards the end of camp when Prince Amukamara intercepted a pass. Amukamara lateraled the ball to Kyle Fuller who took it in for a defensive score. When asked how the defense was doing so far under his leadership defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano had this to say. 

Coach Pagano praised safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on how he’s been mentoring the young guys so far this year.

Coach Pagano touched base on how the NFL’s #3 player takes over the team and evolves the effort of others.

Inside of the awe-inspired crowd where a group of select guests of the Chicago Bears as four fans from the Advocate Children’s Hospital visiting. Among them was Emily Shaver, a 9 year old from Rockford who was born with complex congenital heart disease. Emmett McEneely, a 10 year old who has underwent an arterial switch operation in the first week of her life, Christopher Maldona, a 12-year-old who has had five heart surgeries and six cardiac catheterizations, and Taylor Susnis, a 26 year old with complex congenital heart disease, who is developmentally delayed and will always remain a kid at heart. After being treated to some plays that would stop the most dedicated fan’s heart, the group got lunch with select players and were part of a select autograph session with some of their favorite team’s players.
