Ezekiel Ansah | Mormon Footballers

Ghana-born Mormon footballer Ezekiel ‘Ziggy’ Ansah was a defensive player with the Detroit Lions, and a product of Brigham Young University where this famous Mormon footballer made a name for himself. As a top draft pick, Ansah’s sporting credentials cross into various other games such as basketball which helped to round out this footballer’s skills. It was his skills on the basketball court, in fact, that drew the attention of LDS Church missionaries who converted and baptised celebrity Mormon footballer Ansah to Mormonism in the first place. His first season in the NFL began in 2013.
