I hope more than a few American kids are reading those words and Ziggy Ansah's story. What an inspiration these folks are.

The term scholar-athlete was never applied to a better example.

Great article...it is nice to read about this youn man and the success that he is having. As I read about his journey through the different sports that he loved only to find ultimate success in football, it is a credit to him and his family that he could reach the highest level of that sport and become a football player in the NFL. It helped remind me of another great BYU athlete who came to America and thrived at BYU...Kresimir Cosic from Yugoslovia. I hope that Ziggy will have as much influence on Ghana as Cosic had on Yugoslovia. I think that with his talents and his spirit he would be a great ambassador for an American success story and the spreading of the gospel in Ghana and possibly all of Africa.
