Obada Gets Recognized

Carolina Panthers Efe Obada had a sack and an interception last Sunday against the Cincinatti Bengals, and later on received NFC defensive player of the week honors despite the fact that Carolina lost the game.  He is also the first player to reach the NFL through its International Pathway Program.

Obada is originally from Nigeria, but spent the majority of his childhood in Europe because he was abandoned in London when he was 10.  According to an artical published in the USA Today, Obada just recently revealed that he was the victim of human trafficking as a child.
