A Ghanaian American football player, Thomas Incoom has declared for the 2023 NFL Draft and thrust his family into stardom in America.
His parents, Stephen Incoom and Doris Ntim were interviewed by Fox 5 in Atlanta to profile the family.
Stephen was reportedly an employee at the U.S. embassy in Ghana and in the early 2010s, they had an opportunity to emigrate to the United States.

The family took the chance but life was initially so difficult they tried to move from Atlanta, Georgia to Texas but got into a car accident on the way.
Incoom reportedly witnessed the accident which his mother described as ‘traumatic’.
Following that, they remained in Georgia and with the help of a neighbour, assimilated better.
Their son got into American football and became a star for Stone Mountain High School, Valdosta State and Central Michigan University.
He has now declared for the NFL draft and the family is hoping he can land an NFL contract which has the ability to completely change their lives!
According to American NFL draft experts, Incoom has the chance to be a late draft pick, not a superstar but a solid addition to an NFL roster.

NFL.com’s profile on Incoom reads: “Incoom is a tight-hipped, short-stepping edge defender whose lack of ideal length could push him into a full-time role as a 3-4 outside linebacker. His upper-body strength and sturdy base allow him to neutralize bigger men across from him, but he’s unlikely to ever be a volume playmaker or tackler.
“His face-up rushing style is neither elusive nor particularly creative, and many of his sacks over the last two seasons have come thanks to his strong, secondary effort. Incoom was average against tackles from Oklahoma State and Penn State in 2022, but there are enough flashes on tape to warrant a look on Day 3 of the draft.”
The Incoom’s would be hoping Thomas lands on an NFL roster at least, from which he can hope to build a career.
