Nnamdi Asomugha ACTS in Retirement

Nnamdi Asomugha spends retirement giving teens a college boost

Despite his retirement from the NFL, Nnamdi Asomugha continues to run the college tour he started for low-income and at-risk students. 

It’s still the offseason for retired NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

The 32-year-old former All-Pro announced his retirement in December after 11 seasons in the NFL, but he doesn’t miss the game yet. He’s been focusing his energies on his foundation and providing new experiences and college visits for at-risk high school students from low-income communities. “I’m still doing the same things I would have been doing,” Asomugha said of his time away from football. “This college tour still would have happened […] So I’m not in that stage yet, no. But if you talk to me in the fall, I might have a different answer for you.”

Asomugha started the tours, which he’s dubbed ACTS, (Asomugha College Tour for Scholars) in 2007. Even before he joined the Oakland Raiders in 2003 as a defensive back, the California native volunteered his team with the East Oakland Youth Development Center.
