Pittsburgh Football Player DeAngelo Williams Visits Egypt to Promote American Football

 

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams arrived in Egypt on Monday for a visit aimed to promote American Football as a part of the American Football Without Barriers (AFWB) program.

“We are coming to help polish the great athletes in Egypt with our knowledge of football, in the hopes of bettering the program,” Williams told the Tribune-Review earlier.

Williams, along with nine other members of America’s National Football League (NFL), are looking to boost knowledge of the game in Egypt, where soccer is the most popular sport. Williams and the other NFL members will be setting up a football training camp in hopes of equipping Egyptians with the skills to get football scholarships to American colleges.

The Tribune-Review quoted Amr Hebbo, a founder of the Egyptian American Football Federation, as saying he is “super-excited” about the American players’ visit to Egypt.

“We have been waiting for this for a long time,” Hebbo said. “[Egyptians] are starting to know more about American football and are forming more teams. We are trying to expand as much as we can.”
