The Liberty Flames Sports Network's Game On show recently had a chance to visit with Dr. Samkon Gado, a former Liberty and NFL running back.
Gado was a four-year member of Liberty's football team (2001-04) and graduated from Liberty in 2005. The native of Nigeria earned All-Big South honors during his senior year as he led the team in rushing with 901 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Following his collegiate playing career, Gado embarked on a five-year journey in the NFL where he played for the Kansas City Chiefs (2005), Green Bay Packers (2005-06), Houston Texans (2006-07), Miami Dolphins (2007) and the St. Louis Rams (2008-09).
In 2010, he ended his professional football career and relocated to South Carolina with his wife, Rachel, and his son, to study at the Medical University of South Carolina.
