Just one day after Ndamukong Suh was the second pick in the 2010 NFL draft, he is named by ABC News as their person of the week.
The newscast for ABC World News Tonight ended last night with a feature on Suh. This is given each week to someone who has made a profound difference to the world or the country or a community.
ABC producers gave him this award after watching Suh prepare for the draft last week in New York.
Part of the feature focused on Suh’s promised gift to the university, even though he had not officially received his first NFL contract.
Suh is on his way to the Motor City, after the Detroit Lions took him with the second pick in the NFL Draft.
With all of the stories this week about football and the draft, it is nice to see one that is more about the player away from the field.
