Ahead of Schedule

That's a good way to describe Louisville defensive tackle Amobi Okoye. He played his last game for the Cardinals in their Orange Bowl victory over Wake Forest. Where many student athletes are just beginning their collegiate career at 19 years old, Okoye just finished his. Amazingly, he was a 16-year old freshman playing big-time college football, and in April could wind up being selected in the first round of the NFL draft.

Okoye's success on the field, while impressive, is only a small portion of his story which has taken him to Louisville via Nigeria and Alabama.
