Jordan Steckler and Evan Heim are two northeast Wisconsin natives hoping to carve a long and successful career in the NFL.

Steckler signed with the Texans this off-season, while Heim is making a push for a roster spot in the league.

"Working out and just still trying to chase the dream of playing in the NFL because that's all that I've wanted to do since I was a kid," Heim said.

Besides the fact that Jordan and Evan are offensive lineman, the two have also bonded over the opportunity to represent northeast Wisconsin in the NFL.

"Football is a big thing in the area obviously. You don't always get a bunch of players that have made it," Steckler said.

"Not everybody gets this opportunity--its probably a thousand kids a year that get to be in front of NFL scouts. Just to be one of them is cool but I'm not satisfied with it," Heim said.
