Born in Nigeria on November 22, 1997, the NFL team the Kansas City Chiefs signed offensive tackle Prince Tega Wanogho. He has been with the Chiefs for two years.
He played collegiate football for four years at Auburn before being drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL season.
Wanogho left his home in Delta State, Nigeria, for Alabama in 2014 in pursuit of a career in professional basketball.
Edgewood Academy in Elmore, Alabama, is where he learned the fundamentals of football and honed his talents as a defensive lineman.
Despite only having played football for a single year prior to committing to play for Auburn University, Wanogho was rated a four-star prospect.
A number of other colleges offered him football scholarships, including Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, and Texas.
Wanogho had to sit out his first year of college basketball at Auburn so that he could recover from a leg injury he had during his senior year of high school basketball.
Due to this, he had no choice but to become a redshirt. Originally an offensive lineman, he swapped positions and played as a backup for the remaining 10 games in 2016.
He started 32 games at left tackle throughout the course of his four years with the squad, from his freshman year in 2017 through his senior year in 2019.
Wanogho signed a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs on January 16, 2021, and he immediately joined the team’s practice squad.
He was waived from the team’s main roster on August 31, 2021, and re-signed to the practice squad the following day. On January 26, 2021, he signed with the Chiefs to be part of their reserves/futures roster.
