NFL-bound Oday Aboushi helps Staten Islanders
“I’m going to enjoy my family and enjoy my city over the next week,” he said with a big smile. “I’m not going to see a lot of people for a long time with all the training, so it’ll be nice to hang out with everyone.”
After the Senior Bowl, Aboushi will prepare for the NFL combine in Indianapolis in February and try to impress scouts. Then he’ll find out what his future holds with the April draft.
“It’s encouraging to see those projections and have people noticing you, knowing that your hard work is paying off,” Aboushi said. “Growing up, when I picked Virginia, I had this in my head from Day 1. This has always been part of the plan. So to see it come together, there’s nothing better.”
Moments after saying that, some of the first groups waiting outside were let into the center. Aboushi was there to greet them.
“This was the next big thing on my calendar,” he said. “I was prepping myself for it and busy getting everybody on board with it. I was anxious about it, but the day for me to help is finally here.”
