Charlotte Linebacker Peter Agabe Is Energized, Happy To Be Playing Football

Videos by OutKick

The stands are empty in Boone, North Carolina today for the Charlotte-App State game so that means senior linebacker Peter Agabe has to hype up himself and let’s just say Peter’s energy level is off the charts.

“Emerged as an enthusiastic cog in his first year,” Peter’s Charlotte bio reads. You think?

Peter could’ve been playing in the Big Ten where his senior season would’ve been ruined with a COVID lockdown. Now here he is playing football, able to let that energy out of his system. Coronabros aren’t going to like this kid enjoying himself. Peter’s supposed to be miserable and masked up while riding in a car by himself.


Peter has a pretty incredible story that the Orlando Sentinel told back in 2019. He grew up in Nigeria playing football without a facemask and has only been in the United States since 2016. “The energy and attitude were the two things that really every day, he always had,’’ his former coach at Georgia Military told the Sentinel. “It wasn’t one day on, one day off. Every day.’’

Agabe’s dream? Hearing his named called by the NFL.

“I know that God has brought me here for a reason, and getting there, it’s something I can do,’’ Agabe said in the Sentinel interview. “Those in the NFL don’t have two heads. They have the same head I’ve got, and they’ve got the same body I’ve got, so all I have to do is work to get there.

“I’m telling you. With God by my side, I’m getting there.’’
