Amobi Okoye (l) at one of his Camps in Nigeria


ASM: Well you know that the NFL tried NFL Europe, and that never panned out; and my personal research and experience with that is that I feel because there was no base of players from Europe as opposed to what you have in Africa, therefore I believe maybe in the case with Africa you have such a great amount of players who – Amobi: Of, course you have kids that can look at a player and say that’s my brother playing. ASM: There you go…. there you go …. So I’m kind of like pitching the idea to you, because I think the reason why the NFL failed in Europe is because you don’t have that many players in the league that hail from Europe who play in the NFL. I mean even if there are any they are not even a full hand count you know...I would say … so but in this case with Africa you have so many, a little over a hun- dred, I would say, so I think this has more chance of succeeding than what they tried in Europe. So anyway you’re doing an awesome job, Amobi, and I want to commend you, so how’s life with the Chicago Bears so far, how is your career going with the Chicago Bears at this stage? Amobi: I’m really blessed; I’m happy to be there to do what I have to do and I just love to win. I love this it man I love the team, I love the payers, my teammates, and most importantly the fans the fan base.. ASM: I have to say on a personal level, that you’re one of the players that I admire the most and I kind of followed your career, because I live in the Houston area here and you’re one of the guys that initially—when we started covering NFL Africa, you’re one of the first players we highlighted to let people know that you have this part of Africa here in the USA and they are thriving – Amobi: Thanks man I appreciate it. ASM: You’re welcome,
