    I'm sure that the BYU basketball team could have used Ziggy this past season. They really needed depth on the front line. However, things worked out better for Ziggy.

    Congratulations Ziggy.
    Without Ziggy, there would have been no Cougars taken in the draft.

    Maybe those missionaries who befriended him deserve a little credit. Where would Ezekiel Ansah be at this moment had they not gone there to find him?

    I remember being confused where everything went too.

    Didn't end near as well for me...

    Thanks, Ziggy, for everything you are!

    Ziggy Ansahs story is heart warming and incredible at the same time. He literally came from nowhere to be the #5 pick in the NFL draft.

    Great young man that will be an inspiration to many who have been told they cannot do something but have a desire that will not be snuffed out. He has great tools that cannot be manufactured, but his greatest gift is the motor inside him that drives his quest for perfection. He will be a great football player (already has attained a remarkable feat in getting drafted 5th in the NFL) but there is also a greater reward for him as he turns that remarkable drive toward things outside of football. The sky is the limit for Ziggy. What a great example for all for us.
