2L’s Says Y.E.S. to Ugo Amadi (Youth Excellence Spotlight)

We are excited to tap back into our youth as we recognize a new 2L’s Youth Excellence Spotlight (Y.E.S.). This month we introduce you to Ugo Amadi. Amadi is an Overton High School standout that progresses in sports and scholastic achievement. Amadi, who is known as “Showtime” on the field, is recognized as the 33rd best cornerback prospect, the 14th best overall prospect in Tennessee, and the 425th best overall prospect of the class of 2015. The 16 year old Tennessee native also sets great examples in the classroom as he currently holds a 3.5 GPA in his studies.

While enjoying having fun with friends and family (like any young teenager), Ugo Amadi takes advantage of his spare time by perfecting his craft of football. Amadi has been playing football since the age of 6 years old and has a sense of ‘tunnel vision’ when it comes to being serious about the sport. Amadi states that Meek Mill is a big musical influence for him because he speaks of the struggle and how it’s not easy to be successful. “It takes hardwork and patience” states Amadi.

While speaking with the 3-star Cornerback, Amadi stated that his family and football coach hold a major influence in his dedication to scholastic achievement and football. When asked what keeps him striving in the classroom, Amadi replies “My future, I want to make sure I get the education now, instead of going back to get it later.”

The young star visited various college campuses and been offered a scholarship from schools including Tennessee, Mississippi State, and Duke. We will be delivering a one on one video interview with Ugo Amadi later in the month. We recognize Amadi for his hardwork, focus, scholastic achievements, and dedication to the game.
