Emmanuel Ogbah Week 6 Lott IMPACT Player of the Week

NEWPORT BEACH, Ca. – Oklahoma State Defensive End Emmanuel Ogbah has been named the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week.

The 6-4, 275-pound junior from Houston forced two fumbles, recovered one for a touchdown, had a sack, a quarterback hurry and eight total tackles in the Cowboys’ 33-26 win over West Virginia.  Oklahoma State remained undefeated at 6-0.

In recognition of Ogbah’s performance, the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation, sponsors of the Lott IMPACT Trophy, will make a $1,000 donation to the general scholarship fund at Oklahoma State.

Ogbah was the All-Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year last season when he had 17 tackles for losses and 11 sacks.  He was also a second team All-Big 12 Academic selection.  Ogbah is a native of Nigeria.

“I think I carry the lessons I learned back then (in Nigeria growing up), because my dad always taught us to respect people, to respect elders,” Ogbah said. “That’s really helped me out.”
