    in Sports

    The Nigerian Institute of American Football was founded in June, 2011 at Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Nigeria. The Institute was founded by three American former-athletes. Daryl Hayes (an assistant coach at Shepherd University of West Virginia), Ricardo Dickerson (former football standout at the University of Maryland/Oakland Raiders), and Gregory Hendricks (former professional basketball player/coach) collaborated to bring American football to Nigeria. The three, along with Professional Basketball player and Nigerian National Basketball Team Captain Ejike Ugboaja, found a unique niche for the football while leading basketball camps in Ejike’s homeland of Nigeria.  The NIAF’s efforts in the United States are centered on fund-raising, collecting football materials, and preparing the curriculum for ABU’s Football Programme of Study. To date, thousands of dollars of donations have been collected. There exists an active attempt to secure long-term support from US citizens interested in spreading football worldwide.
