Before Emmanuel Ogbah made it to the NFL as a second-round selection in the 2016 draft, and before he signed a massive four-year, $65 million contract this offseason, he was an immigrant whose family moved from Nigeria to Texas.
Ogbah and his family discussed their journey and the Miami Dolphins’ defensive end’s upbringing in a team-produced video on YouTube. The peek behind the football life of Ogbah shows his compassion and work ethic, as they talk about some of the sacrifices he and his family made as well as how much he cares about giving back to his family, community and home country.
When Miami paid Ogbah this offseason, they locked up a high-character individual, who also produces on the football field. That’s a win-win scenario.
