Dragging a little after the Thanksgiving break? Needing some extra motivation to get through this Tuesday? Here is the story for you then.
Amobi Okoye had a full ride to Harvard, or a full ride to play football at the University of Louisville. He graduated high school at 16 and became the youngest player in the NCAA when he dressed for the University of Louisville. He graduated college a semester early and was the 10th overall pick to the Houston Texans in 2007. In March of 2013, he nearly died after he contracted a rare disease that also took his memory. Now, he is fighting to find his spot on an NFL roster.
