Default Re: Nigerian-Born American Footballers: Their Impression, Expectation On Nigeria

Quote:
Don't discount the decision-making ability of 15-year-olds, though. Amobi Okoye didn't just sign with the University of Louisville at that age. He showed up on campus to play football.

Yesterday Okoye, a native of Nigeria now with the Houston Texans, was one of four NFL players from Africa profiled in The New York Times for returning to that continent on a humanitarian trip.

In March, the group went to Nigeria to fund scholarships at 10 universities, give HIV testing kits to clinics, dig water wells and outfit a youth soccer team.

It was Okoye who organized the trip, and family members of his helped arrange many of the stops in the country. At just 20, Okoye looks destined for great things.
