Leeds United have taken on the responsibility of polishing the diamond that is Charlie Allen.
It's wrong to put too much pressure on a young player's shoulders but all the coaches who have worked with this gifted kid say he's destined to make a big impact.
You must be a special talent if you're making a Linfield appearance at the age of 15 - the club's youngest ever debutant.
He was already a teenage boy playing men's football and the Northern Ireland under-17 international now appears to have the world at his feet.
Allen is now 16-years-old and he's just agreed a three-year scholarship with the Elland Road side who, ironically, have just returned to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years.
The Carrickfergus teenager made his debut for the Under-23 side last Friday when he played the second-half of a 1-1 draw with Manchester City and, on Tuesday, he played the full game and captained the Under-21 side in the EFL Trophy match at Accrington Stanley, which finished 7-0 to the hosts.
Allen has settled in well and is already impressing the coaches.
If we are excited to see how his journey unfolds, how do you think his family, including dad Steven, feels?
"Charlie's done really well and we are delighted for him," he says.
"The whole of Carrick is proud of him, he has worked hard for years to get where he is."
That work ethic separates the good from the great in sport.
Manchester United scout Bob Bishop, who discovered a 15-year-old George Best, recognised talent when he saw it, but he often asked teachers 'what sort of a boy is he?'
The professional football environment is no place for the lazy, arrogant or unreliable.
Those who have worked with Allen say he has the hunger, focus and drive to stay on the right path.
Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Rangers were impressed by Northern Ireland's wonderkid but from the moment he arrived at Leeds United, he felt at home.
"I went to Leeds and was impressed with their facilities," says Allen, who was on target on Christmas morning when Linfield Swifts lifted the Steel and Sons Cup.
"They have reached the Premier League now and it's like a family club.
"From the moment I arrived, I was made to feel very welcome and it felt like home.
"There were trials at other clubs but it wasn't a difficult decision. As soon as I went to Leeds, I just knew I wanted to go there.
"English and Scottish clubs were interested but that's behind me now and I've been able to settle in with Leeds and want to play as many minutes as I can.
"I had to wait for clearance to come through but I was able to play against City and Accrington Stanley which was a brilliant experience. I will have to be patient and progress with the youth sides. Every time I'm playing, I will just try to impress and develop."
Allen has matured so much on a football pitch, it's easy to forget he's only 16.
Another emerging talent from Northern Ireland, 20-year-old Alfie McCalmont, signed a four-year deal to remain at Elland Road and that's a measure of the faith Marcelo Bielsa has in him.
Bielsa, whose side kick off their Premier League adventure at champions Liverpool tomorrow, confirmed he is staying with Leeds for their first season back in the top flight.
While the first team's fortunes are his primary concern, an effective production line will contribute to a prosperous future.
And the player who could be Allen's inspiration is Northern Ireland hero Stuart Dallas, who sparkled at Coagh United, Crusaders and Brentford before earning a Premier League journey at Elland Road.
"Stuart has been in touch, letting me know he's around if I need anything," said Allen.
"It's nice to know that and he's had a great career so it would be great to follow in his footsteps.
"I've settled in really well. I'm in digs in Wetherby after travelling over on my own and I now live with a family and another young player from Middlesbrough, everyone is very nice.
"I've been training most days and sometimes we head out for dinner or shopping.
"I'm with the younger players and we train in the same area as the first team.
"The facilities are top class, their pitches are like carpets.
"Everyone is really friendly and made me feel at home.
"I don't really get nervous, I was really looking forward to it and couldn't wait to get over."
Allen is also in regular contact with his former Linfield team-mate Dale Taylor who is at Nottingham Forest and whatever happens in his future, you can be sure he won't forget his roots.
"Family have been a big influence and the four years at Linfield helped me, particularly playing for the Swifts and being involved with the first team," he says.
"I was at Greenisland for eight years and they really helped my development plus the ClubNI set-up helped prepare me for this move and train the right way.
"Every coach I have worked with has been great and helped me out. Dale has gone to Nottingham Forest and he's doing well, we call each other every day to stay in touch. Hopefully we can meet again in the international set-up.
"I do miss family but you have to make sacrifices to move your career forward."
Dad Steven, mum Leeanne, brother Harry and sister Chloe are watching Charlie's progress with considerable pride.
Steven added: "Greenisland were brilliant and then it's worked out well for him at Linfield and we can't thank all the coaches who have worked with him enough.
"From day one, they have been brilliant with him.
"Leeds United will look after him and it's great to see the club back in the Premier League.
"The ClubNI set-up was also useful because last year he was living at Jordanstown and he became a full-time resident there, training every day.
"Charlie could stay with his school, unlike others who had to switch theirs and it can be tough but it makes the lads grow up.
"He was buzzing and ready to go.
"There was a lot of interest but if you're good enough, Leeds will give you a chance and you don't want to end up lost in an Academy structure somewhere else."
Charlie's younger brother Harry (12) will be inspired by his sibling's success as he sharpens his skills at Greenisland.
We shouldn't expect him to join a Premier League side by the age of 16 but Harry is fortunate to have an inspirational role model within his own family.
Charlie's family are watching every magical move their boy makes and they certainly aren't alone.
