Quote from: grumbler on November 28, 2021, 11:05:39 AMA funny story: Michigan defensive end David Ojabo was born in Nigeria, grew up in Aberdeen Scotland, and only started playing American football when he got a scholarship for his junior and senior years of High School at Blair Academy in New Jersey. His parents came to the US to see him play in The Game at the Big House. That was the first American football game they'd ever seen, and Ojabo says that they now think that that is what all American Football games are like.
Quote from: PDH on November 28, 2021, 04:14:42 PMGood story. I also like the one about the kid for Central Michigan who came the to US as an exchange student for one year from Austria where he had played American Football - that small school of 400 kids made a run into the playoffs and he caught the attention of college recruiters. He played as a tight end/wide receiver and got college scholarships, and has now transitioned to a all-league left tackle. Of course, he is a very athletic 6'7" kid who kept that after adding 60 lbs to move to the line - that is just a cool thing.
