Cairo Santos’ unique journey from Brazil to Chicago Bears record-holder started with the support of 2 families nearly 4,000 miles apart: ‘He’s such a special human’

“I’m around a lot of professional athletes, and I don’t know if I’ve ever met a kid that’s as focused and even as Cairo. Kickers, it’s very volatile. You’re a hero or a zero. You never hear a person say, ‘Oh, well, Cairo Santos had an OK game.’ No, he either won the game or in a lot of people’s opinions he lost the game. That’s something I can’t teach but something I always had a lot of respect for. Even as a 15-year-old kid, he was different. He was very, very mature for his age. He was away from his parents. He was learning a new language. There were all these distractions, but he didn’t allow it to (affect him). He’s such a special human.”
