Freshman Owusu Continues Family Tradition

Football is one of those sports where talent often runs in the family. Archie, Peyton, and Eli Manning, Howie and Chris Long, Kellen and Kellen Winslow—the list of NFL families is lengthy. Harvard football is no exception to this trend, as the Crimson can say it has a player whose family heirloom is a football. Hailing from Oxnard, California, freshman defensive back Brian Owusu is the second oldest in a family of five standout athletes.

Giving up on a dream is never an easy thing to do. Just ask Andrew Berry ’09, Harvard’s three-time All-Ivy cornerback and 2008 preseason All-American. A star on and off the field, Berry also ranked among his graduating class’ top five percent in GPA and was Director of the Cambridge Youth Enrichment Program during his time at Harvard. Though he dreamed of playing professional football, Berry was not selected by a pro team in the highly-competitive NFL draft last April. He received a tryout offer from the Washington Redskins, but almost immediately after he arrived at their minicamp, he was sent home with a herniated disk in his back. Berry knew then that his dream of playing pro ball was over.
