28.  Mustang Linebacker Made it to the NFL

MICHAEL OKWO

British-born Michael Okwo, MC’03, shined enough on both the Mustang football field and in his Costa classrooms to draw the attention of  Stanford University.  While there, linebacker Okwo was named twice to First-Team All Pac-10.  In 2006, Okwo was a third round draft pick by the Chicago Bears.  Unfortunately, injuries kept him off the field more often than on during his brief NFL stint with the Bears (2007-8) and the Indianapolis Colts (2009).  That said, did you know that a high school football player has less than a 0.09% (or 9 in 10,000 chance) of ever being drafted by an NFL team?  That’s real drive.
