Africa Fashion Week New York Play’s “Fútbol” with James Ihedigbo of the New York Jets

NEW YORK, NY, June 14, 2010- While the South African 2010 World Cup is just beginning, Adireé Fashion Agency (Adireé) of Africa Fashion Week (New York) (AFWNY) is starting to create their celebrity guest lists. AFWNY proudly announces that American “fútbol” safety for the New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL) James Ihedigbo will be attending AFWNY.

Ihedigbo started his successful “fútbol” career in high school and then walked onto the University of Massachusetts football team as a freshman in 2002. He did not stop there and decided to attend the Jets 3-Day Rookie Mini-Camp. The Jets saw his drive, passion and skill for “fútbol” and signed Ihedigbo as a rookie free agent.
