After earning his undergraduate degree in sports management in 2012, Emmanuel Acho was drafted by the Cleveland Browns. He was then traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, where he spent the majority of his career. While in the NFL, Acho spent off-seasons back on campus at the University of Texas, to earn his master’s degree in Sports Psychology.
In 2016 Acho left the football field, but he didn’t leave the game. He put down the ball and picked up the microphone to begin his broadcasting career. In 2018 Acho was promoted within ESPN, where he served as the youngest national football analyst, and was named a 2018 Forbes Under 30 Selection. In 2017, he and his family’s nonprofit organization, Living Hope Christian Ministries, raised enough money to build a hospital in rural Nigeria.
