The competitive streak of this sixth-year running back extends to his personal style. “When I’m on the road with the team, I don’t like to wear what everybody else does,” says Forte, 27, who shares a five-bedroom house north of the city with his wife, Danielle (a stay-at-home mom), nine-month-old daughter, Nahla, and dogs Taz and Ali. Here, the Pro Bowler offers a glimpse into his winning style.
