Israel Idonije is one of those rare specimen, not only is he fiooooonnnnneeee as hell, (in my Liberia English “that man drop straight from heaven”) he is an incredible human being. On a serious note, Mr. Idonije might look like a giant from on the onset but he has a heart of gold. His story is so incredible that he needs to be nominated for CNN hero award.

Israel was on of the finalist for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Not only has he excelled on the field, his community and abroad, he is also a savvy businessman. I can’t say enough good things about this man, but you can read for yourself.
