Former Notre Dame student-athlete Romeo Okwara '16 earned his first NFL start last night for the New York Football Giants on national television.
The 21 year-old Okwara, who entered Notre Dame as a 16 year-old -- made 8 tackles, 1 sack (photo above) and 1 pass deflection in his NFL starting debut.
I believe he just might be the only 21 year-old player in the National Football League with a college degree -- he has a B.S. in Accounting from Notre Dame.
Oh, by the way --- the Giants beat the Cowboys 10 - 7 in a defensive slug fest.
