Ahman Green In the NFL
Ahman Green was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in 1998 and played for them until 1999. He was then traded to Green Bay in 2000, where he had a successful career and was selected for numerous Pro Bowls from 2001 to 2007. After a brief stop with the Houston Texans from 2007 to 2008, Green returned to Green Bay for a second stint in 2009. He retired as the Packers’ leading rusher with 8,322 yards in 104 games.
Green’s Passion For Video Games
Ahman Green is a lifelong video game enthusiast who enjoys playing “Madden” games and “Tecmo Super Bowl.” He often spends his off days all gaming instead of golfing like some former teammates. Green is passionate about growing the ESports industry and became the first ESports coach for Lakeland University in 2020.
He built the program from scratch, and Lakeland’s co-ed team now competes in the Nation Association of Collegiate ESports (NACE) alongside about 150 other colleges in the league. Every fall, they battle against teams from all over the country, promoting the sport along the way.
In January, Ahman Green began a new role as a Mass Communications lecturer and Esports coach at his former college, Nebraska. His primary focus is to teach students valuable life skills, such as discipline, respect, and communication.
