A Redding teen is making big sports predictions in the hopes of turning it into a broadcasting career.
14-year-old Sam Chimenti has already accurately predicted past Super Bowls' teams correctly.
In fact, last year before the NFL season started he predicted the Baltimore Ravens would defeat the San Francisco 49ers.
And while that was a feat in its own, he also predicted the spread of the game would be just 3 points--the Ravens ended up winning by exactly 3 points.
With that kind of resume, Chimenti has started a sports prediction website.
On it he has made predictions for the Major League Baseball season and the upcoming NFL Draft.
Chimenti is definitely using his site to build name recognition in hopes of segueing it into a career in sports journalism, but he's also very passionate about what he does.
"I want people to get to know me because I want to be on ESPN someday," Chimenti said, "That's my big dream – I've been thinking about it since I was 8-years-old."
"I couldn't think of a better job than to be on ESPN," he said, "where I could get paid to talk about the things I love and the things I do every day."
Chimenti hopes to soon add fantasy sports to his website's arsenal.
