Growing up in Dallas, Texas, the son of Nigerian immigrants, Acho never dreamed his life would take him all over the country as an NFL player for the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants, but it did. It turns out those “glory years” of playing football were really just the beginning of his career and what he says is now his calling.

Acho shares the emotional breaking point that led him to step into a whole new direction of his life professionally and personally.
