Don’t watch Thursday’s PFT Live segment with Texas defensive end Sam Acho unless you want to feel a little worse about yourself.
The third-team All American and first team all Big 12 member is readying for life in the NFL and a possible transition to outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Work ethic should not be a problem for him at the next level.
Acho was a two-time Academic All American, speaks Spanish, and won a pair of national scholar athlete awards. He travels to Nigeria every year as part of a medical outreach program. Oh, and he can rip off some Shakespeare when Florio puts him on the spot.
