Here's a sneak peek of some of the highlights of Tuesday's debut episode:

-Bushrod on his hopes of winning a Super Bowl with the Bears:

“One awesome thing that coach [Marc] Trestman does is to inform us that Grant Park is where we want to end up three to four days after the Super Bowl. That is where we want to be. We want to see seven million people shut the city down. If we can end up in Chicago, that would be unreal.“

-Bushrod on how his teammates support his foundation:

“The kids are absolutely in awe when they see these players, but it motivates them. It motivates these kids to think outside their circle and motivates them to go out and be the best that they can be. With our scholarship, we are trying to motivate kids to go to the next level.”

-Bears tight end Martellus Bennett on Bushrod:

“He is a well-rounded, humble guy, who is eager to give and eager to do better. It is exciting to know a guy like this. He is a great human being.“

-Bears running back Matt Forte on Bushrod:

“I knew him before he came to the team from the Pro Bowl. He gravitated towards me. He is a great guy and when he got picked up by us in free agency, I was excited because he is a great lineman and then also he is a great guy. Great for him to invite us to do stuff like this and all for a great cause.“
