Useless Information

I was checking up on the NFL draft, and discovered that former Alabama defender Charlie Peprah, who was taken by the Giants, is the grandson of “I.G. Achampong, [who] was head of state of Ghana in West Africa in the 1970s.”

Even so, Peprah might not win the team award for most interesting grandparent. Fellow Giant draftee Mathias Kiwanuka’s grandfather, “Benedicto, was Uganda’s first prime minister, elected in 1961 and assassinated by the Idi Amin regime in 1972.”
