 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Prince Tega Wanogho hopes he serves as an example to youngsters in his native Nigeria after reaching the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles selected the former Auburn offensive tackle in the NFL Draft on April 25. "I say it all the time: It's way bigger than me," Wanogho told NBC Sports Philadelphia this week. "This is actually just not for me or my family, I would say my village. That's what it is. This is something I'm doing to help people back home, too, because I know there's so many kids back home in Nigeria who would like the same dream. Especially the fact of me being drafted, they see that right now they know they can do it. That's what I want to present to them someday -- just the chance."

Wanogho came to the United States in 2014 to pursue basketball. But he switched to football at Edgewood Academy in Elmore and made another switch at Auburn from defensive end to offensive tackle. "Whenever you take pride in whatever you do, you're going to find a way," Wanogho said. "And for me, it's not about me starting football early or late, it's just the will to learn, to play, and that's my will right there. I want to play. I want to be able to show people what I can do. People don't understand that, so at the end of the day, it's not all about when you start or where you actually start, it's just the finish. That's what it is. And that's me. That's what I do. I'm the guy who's always going to finish. "I'm not going to lie. I'm still learning. A lot of players in the league, they're still learning. That's something I'm going to do every day." - Birmingham News
