Dream becomes reality for Bears rookie Sanborn

Growing in the Chicago region Jack Sanborn dreamed of producing the kind of play that he would have made for players of the Bears that he created on every Saturday in Soldier Field

The rookie linebacker undrafted from Wisconsin He was born within suburban Deer Park and attended

Lake Zurich High School was a standout in special teams and defense in a 1914 win against the Chiefs

Being part of an Bears team whose coaches Matt Eberflus has vowed will be fanatical in taking aways

Sanborn scored an interception and an fumble recovery on two quarterthird plays

The offense was able to convert the two mistakes into touchdowns and a field goal allowing players Bears score 19 points without a response to overcome a 140 deficit at the halftime

Its something we talk about constantly in training Sanborn said Takeaways are the essence of the game within the NFL

We had a takeaway and the next time we had another shortly after and sort of picked up speed

Sanborns interception occurred at the end of the first play in the quarter on the third play of the second half on a Shane Buechele pass over the middle that was intended by tight end Jordan Franks

We was in cover 2 The receiver was trying to slow down before myself Sanborn said I made a decent break

The quarterback attempted to insert it and I sort of boxed him in a bit but was fortunate enough to keep it

Sanborn also recorded five tackles and one tackle for loss on defense He also recorded two trips to special team Sanborn made a fourth tackle on punt return  but it did not count because of penalties imposed on the Bears
