Justin Herbert had big dreams that came true.

The NFL shared a photo on Instagram of a letter written by now 23-year-old Herbert when he was nine, in which he shared his goals of playing in the league after Monday's Los Angeles Chargers victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.

"When I grow up I am going to be a professional football player," the fourth-grader declared.

In another line, the Eugene, Oregon, native said, "I am going to live in Los Angeles."

The Chargers starting quarterback also said at the time that he hoped to be 6'3" when he grew up. He now staggers at 6'6" — exceeding his expectations.

"But seriously called his shot that's dope," one person commented.
