Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl running back Thomas Jones is well on his way to a sixth consecutive 1,000-yard season. However, the 5'10", 220-pound beastly ball carrier has his eyes set on bigger goals, most notably a Super Bowl championship. With the Chiefs sitting atop the AFC West at 7-4, Jones' goal is within sight.

In the first installment of Thomas Jones Chasing Greatness, Jones provides an inside look at his childhood—a period of his life when he developed his mental toughness, work ethic and passion for football.

Watch the episode below to see how Jones' early years still drive his quest for greatness on the gridiron. Check back next week for episode 2, which will document his training evolution from doing Push-Ups as a kid to adding serious muscle mass in college.
