Ziggy makes a draft run



Full Story –Houma Today.Com

There are stories of players making it to the NFL that would almost seem like something from a novel, but this year one player, Brigham Young defensive end/outside linebacker Ezekial "Ziggy" Ansah, has a story like virtually no one else in recent years.

Ansah grew up in Accra, Ghana, and dreamed of playing either professional soccer or in the NBA.

His path to the NFL was first paved by his speed as a track athlete, and in 2010, he decided to give football a try.

"I knew about professional football growing up, but my dream really was to play in the NBA," Ansah said. "Growing up in Africa, my background was soccer, running track and playing basketball. When I came to the states, I was a track sprinter, and I decided to give football a try. Everyone wanted me to try out and see if I could play this game. I guess I have done pretty well."

Pretty well indeed.
