Abule Abadi-Fitzgerald came to the U.S. from Nigeria when he was only 12 years old. He arrived in Lakeland, Florida, where he found his adoptive family, as well as a love for football. His athletic passions led him to the University of Kentucky where he found his other family — the Big Blue Nation. Abadi-Fitzgerald will graduate this weekend with a bachelor’s degree in human communication, and now aspires to be a role model for his family in Nigeria.
