The National Football League (NFL) as part of its Africa Touchdown project has engaged some fans in Accra with the goal of promoting the sport in Africa.
The programme saw some NFL players reach out to American football fans in Ghana, which was the first of its kind held on the African continent.
Jeremiah Owusu Koramoah, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Kwity Paye, Uchenna Nwosu, and Osi Umenyiora were some of the NFL’s stars present to interact with fans.
At an NFL Fan Zone gathering at the Kempinski Hotel in Accra, fans had the chance to witness first hand the drills athletes from the NFL go through.
Fans participated in drills such as vertical jump, broad jump, 40-yard dash, and quarterback toss to gain an understanding of NFL athletes’ workouts.
