Amobi Okoye is a football player with a net worth of $8 million. Amobi Okoye has earned his net worth as a defensive tackle for the NFL. He played for the Houston Texans since the year 2007, and in September of the same year, was named Defensive Rookie of the month. He was born in Anambra, Nigeria.
Amobi Okoye (born June 10, 1987) is a Nigerian-American defensive tackle of American football for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Houston Texans tenth overall in the 2007 NFL Draft. He played college football at Louisville.
Okoye has also played for the Chicago Bears.
Okoye was born in Anambra State, Nigeria, a member of the Igbo ethnic group. He moved to Huntsville, Alabama in the United States when he was 12 years old. After only spending two weeks in middle school, he tested into the 9th grade. He first started playing football as a sophomore at Lee High School, knowing virtually nothing about the game before his high school coach suggested he go play Madden NFL football to learn. By the time he was a senior, he won first-team All-State honors as both a defensive lineman and offensive lineman. Because he shares the same surname as former Kansas City Chiefs running back Christian Okoye, some sources have claimed that the two are related. Amobi says they are not related, but the two families live on adjoining land in Nigeria.
At age 15 Okoye chose the University of Louisville over Harvard, citing a desire to play for a strong football program.
At Louisville, Okoye majored in biology. He later switched his major to psychology and graduated a semester early, thereby completing his degree in three and a half years. At 16, he became the youngest player in the NCAA. Okoye played in all 13 games as a true freshman at defensive tackle and was credited with 17 tackles and a sack. He recorded then-career-best three tackles against Tulane and recorded his first career sack against UTEP.
As a sophomore, Okoye appeared in 11 of 12 games, recording 26 tackles and a sack. Okoye's only missed game was against East Carolina, because of a shoulder injury. Okoye also made his first collegiate start against Army, recording a career-high seven tackles.
In his junior season of 2005, he recorded 23 tackles and four tackle
