Sixteen Year Old Might Play in UK-UL Football Game!

From theLouisville Courier Journal:
"University of Louisville freshman Amobe Okoye might be the youngest player in college football this season. The 6-foot-2, 300-pound defensive tackle turned 16 last month.

When he showed up on the depth chart with the second team last weekend, UofL officials started digging. So far, no player younger than Okoye has surfaced.

But that might not stop coach Bobby Petrino from playing the Nigerian-born phenom when the Cardinals open their season Sunday at the University of Kentucky. "
