NFL: Celebrity Basketball Organized by NFL Defensive Tackle for the Houston, Texans, The Amobi Okoye Foundation Inc.

A Hero on and off the football field, it will be factual to infer that this is the case with the NFL Defensive Tackle for the Houston, Texans, Amobi Okoye #91, who started a non-profit organization “The Amobi Okoye Foundation Inc.” to provide an exemplary figure, educate the kids, and as he previously stated “with the belief that all youth have the basic human right of hope for a brighter future”.

The celebrity basketball game commenced after a short barbecue from the morning kick-off for kids event. Although, these players are professional football (NFL) stars, one will be curious to know how these big guys would perform on a basketball court. All I can say is, don’t be deceived by the size, these guys are athletic, very agile, and they can jump, as I witnessed a few dunks, 3 pointers, and a lot of running back and forth the ends of the court. The last minute of the game became very intense that it seemed as if I was watching an NBA game for a second.

The game was structured in such a way that the defensive linesmen (Black Jersey) played against the offensive linesmen (Red Jersey), and at the end of the day, the Black Jersey took the crown home.

After the celebrity basketball game, the Amobi Okoye Foundation awarded a one year $10,000 scholarship to Johnny Penna based on certain academic criteria and an essay. As he was receiving this award, Amobi expressed his intension to have Jonny write another essay that will qualify him for a trip to Nigeria next year to attend a program, Changing African Through Education  (C.A.T.E) which is also being sponsored by The Amobi Foundation Inc.

Other guest appearances were NFL Stars, and representatives from various organizations including but not limited to NIKE, POWERADE, WATERLIOUS, 97.9 THE BOX, EVOLV.
