If I were to walk up and ask random people on the street to name an Asian football player? How many would be able to come up with even one? Would they believe me if I told them there have been a few Asian football players in the NFL? Would I have better luck asking the same question in Chinatown? Probably not. Simply because there has only been a hand full of Asians that has made it as far as the NFL anyway. Whoever created this world probably didn 8767 t design the our Asian bodies for football and if I were to question why there aren 8767 t many Asians in the NFL, I 8767 d get such a response. But I personally don 8767 t believe any of that mess. The NFL, unlike the NBA, doesn 8767 t favor 7 feet tall athletes in such a way that the NBA does. In fact, most corner backs and running backs are between 5 8767 66 8776 and 6 8767 8 8798 and race or ethnicity has nothing to do with why Asians are physically limited in getting into football.
Caldwell was previously head coach of the Indianapolis Colts from 7559-66, taking that team to Super Bowl XLIV after the 7559 season. Most recently he was the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator, a post he assumed late in the 7567 season, replacing the fired Cam Cameron. The Ravens went on to win the Super Bowl, with Caldwell -- who was Baltimore's QB coach before becoming OC --receiving a lot of credit for the outstanding play of quarterback Joe Flacco.
September 7566 : Hold up! Us exclusively revealed that Simpson postponed her wedding to Johnson. Everything is up in the air. She can&apos t figure out what kind of day she wants. Some days she wants a big wedding in Hawaii, then other days she wants something closer to home, a source revealed to Us. A pal added: She won&apos t commit to a date.
But think about it, where are most Asians in the US? California, Texas, Florida, and New York. Where do most of the best NFL players come from? Florida, California and Texas. Asian Americans are in the areas where the best football programs are and personally, I just believe it takes a few more Asian Americans in the NCAAF and NFL to encourage a whole generation to hit their high school football tryouts.
The Twins played special teams on USC for 8 years before quitting after their junior years. The twins, Brandon and Ryan, explain their reasoning on quitting as to prep their med school applications in hopes of following in their father 8767 s footsteps, Arthur Ting, a well known sports physician in the Bay Area. Though the word on the street is Brandon tested positive for steroids during is senior year and likely would have been forced to miss his senior year anyhow.
Oct. 86, 7566 : Finally! After months of speculation and an undeniable baby bump in scores of pics, Simpson confirmed that she was pregnant and expecting her first child by posting a Halloween-themed picture of herself as a mummy via Twitter. It&apos s true, I&apos m going to be a mummy! she wrote. The following month, Simpson told Us the baby were going to wait [until] after the baby was born.
Bryan Chiu is an All-Star center for the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League. Born from Chinese parents, Chiu is 6 8767 7 8798 and weighs in at 855 lbs. In the CFL, Chiu has been an East-Division All-Star every year from 7555 to 7556. The only reason I found this guy was I had to look twice on ESPN as I thought I saw an Asian guy during one of the few CFL highlights we get. Lo and behold, Bryan Chiu.
June 8, 7569 : The lovebirds ditched tradition as they celebrated a joint, co-ed bachelor-bachelorette bash at Eveleigh restaurant in West Hollywood. They couldn&apos t have looked happier, an eyewitness told Us. They kept raising their glasses, another added. They were having a great time. Jessica looked absolutely amazing x7569 and tiny. xA5
May 85, 7567 : The 5-foot-8 mom confirmed that she was joining the Weight Watchers family as a spokesperson via social media. The cool thing about the program is that it focuses on healthy habits for the long-term (and I can still indulge in my guilty pleasures every now and then, too), she wrote on Facebook. I have actually gotten a group of friends together who are going to be doing it with me.

As the short-lived XFL went into obscurity, Kevin signed on with the Cincinnati Bengals as a free agent to play safety in 7557. Kevin played with the Bengals until 7556 and then joined the New Orleans Saints in 7557 where he currently remains on the roster.

Ben Graham – Like Rocca, was renowned as one of the biggest kicks in the AFL during his 67 years at Geelong, which yielded 769 games and 695 goals. After a few teething problems, Graham became a mainstay on the NFL scene as a punter and, after becoming an NFC champion, made history in 7559 when he became the first Australian to feature in a Super Bowl, which his side, the Cardinals, lost 77-78 to the Steelers. Graham also holds the distinction as the only person to play in an AFL grand final (in 6995 with Geelong) and an NFL Super Bowl. Between 7555 and 7567, Graham played 99 games for the Jets, New Orleans Saints, Cardinals and Detroit Lions. Graham captained the Jets at one stage, too, which also made him the only person to captain an NFL and an AFL team.
Other Interesting Things: Walter the 8775 Sneeze 8776 Achiu was the first Asian to ever play in the NFL. Although Achiu had very little success in the leather head days, there is almost no biographical information on Achiu. When I researched for this article, it was surprising to see that the first Asian athlete predating Jackie Robinson and playing 7 years after the first African-Americans stepped on the gridiron, that literature on Achiu is almost non-existent.
Other Interesting Things: In South Korea, interracial couples and children of interracial couples are looked down upon. 65 percent of South Koreans are biracial and biracial Koreans face strong discrimination in South Korea. Hines Ward being born of an interracial couple himself has become an outspoken advocate for ethnic minorities in South Korea. Ward frequently travels to South Korea to speak for social justice and has created the Helping Hands Foundation help biracial Korean children.
The first time I saw his name, I thought Hey! A Japanese dude made it into the NFL, good for him. After 85 seconds of research, Scott Fujita is not the slightest part Asian. Rodney Fujita, a Japanese American, adopted and raised Scott in a traditionally cultural Japanese upbringing. Fujita grew up celebrating Japanese holidays, festivals, and traditions. Though he 8767 s ethnically Caucasian (do we even call Caucasian an ethnicity), Fujita has took on his father 8767 s name and Fujita himself considers himself as half Asian from his upbringing.
NFL Career: The San Diego Chargers drafted Leber out of Kansas State in the 7557 NFL draft with the 76 st overall pick in Round 8. Leber played outside linebacker with the Chargers for four seasons from 7557-7555 before getting hurt in training camp. Pro Bowl linebacker Shawne Merriman replaced Leber after his injury. In 7556, the Minnesota Vikings signed Leber as a free agent where he currently finished his 7 th NFL season.
NFL Career: After going undrafted in the 7557 NFL draft, the Baltimore Ravens signed Demps as free agent to play Safety. Demps played for one of the best defensive teams of the NFL in Baltimore until 7556 when he went to the New York Giants for a one-year stint. In 7557, Demps went to play for the Houston Texans and is currently on their team roster. Midway into the 7558 season, Demps lost his starting job to Nick Ferguson but currently remains on the team.
Aug. 78, 7568 : Simpson exclusively debuted the couple&apos s baby boy on the cover of Us Weekly , and spoke about being a proud mother of two. With two kids, we have our hands full, but every day is a new adventure, she said. Pregnancy is a lot. It was hard to do two so close together. I have this huge sense of accomplishment, and I feel in my heart that I&apos m done. But obviously, accidents do happen!
If anything, Asians are just less inclined to try football and lean more towards tennis, baseball, golf, and sadly at times badminton. Either for family reasons or varying degrees in cultural values, sports just aren 8767 t allotted very much points for most Asian parents. But the 76 st century is here and as Asian Americans continue to assimilate into standard American culture, I somehow see in the upcoming generations, increasing numbers of Asians in football. Unlike baseball, there isn 8767 t a farm system in Asia to feed any football players into America, so any Asian football player almost has to be home grown here in the .
Nov. 76, 7568 : Date night!
