Ahman Green

by Tristan from Omaha

Ahman Green was born February 16th, 1977 in Omaha, Nebraska. He was named after the football great Ahmad Rashad. His mom liked the name without the "d" at the end. His full name is Ahman Rashad Green.

As a kid, Ahman had the nickname "batman". He had the Batman emblem shaved into the back of his head and kept it for two years. Also, as a kid he suffered two major injuries. One was when he was trying to get silly-putty and fell of a ledge and had a rod stuck in his jaw. The second injury was when he and his friend had a race in the gym and he was going so fast that he couldn't slow down and hit the wall and broke both his wrists and gave himself a concussion.

Ahman went to Central High-School in Omaha, Nebraska. He was high school All American and Player of the Year selection three times. He rushed for more than 1,000 yards as a junior and senior. He was a three year letter winner in football, and captured state titles in the 100 and 200 meter dashes.

Ahman went to college at UNL (University of Nebraska at Lincoln). He played for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Ahman was one of Nebrask's best running backs. He was a part of the 1997 citizenship team. He left college one year early to play in the NFL. He was the third round pick for the Seattle Seahawks in 1998. He now plays for the Greenbay Packers. Ahman now has a wife and two girls. He weighs 218 pounds and is 6ft.

Ahman is my hero because he shows dedication to what he does. He gives me the strength to excel at football, and to do everything right. I want to follow in his footsteps through high-school and college. Maybe someday I might play in the NFL. From breaking both wrists to becoming one of the best running backs ever, he is one of the best heroes ever.
