NFL Texans Outside linebacker ‘Connor Barwin’ Recounts Journey to West Africa, Nigeria
Couple of days ago we showed you video of the 2011 C.A.T.E trip to Nigeria. A trip led by Amobi Okoye Foundation, which also included Houston Texans outside linebacker Connor Barwin, and a group of other NFL players, Coaches, International Federation of American Football (IFAF), College Interns, Doctors, and Volunteers (Including New York State Senator, and California Mega Million Lottery Winner) to a nearly two weeks fulfilling philanthropic mission to Nigeria as part of his yearly C.A.T.E program.
Watch the video below
Barwin is currently on the rebound from a horrific ankle injury in game 1 of last season that ended his season. He said he is almost 100 percent and will be ready for training camp, whenever that is because of the lockout.
During the trip to Nigeria, Barwin visited schools, medical clinics, and helped with clinics for kids and for coaches in an effort to expand the knowledge of football to the people of Nigeria where the sport is in its infancy.
It was an eye-opening experience for Connor.
