Five things you need to know about Larry Ogunjobi


Charlotte 49ers Athletics

Larry Ogunjobi is a name the offensive line needs to know before today’s matchup. The junior defensive linemen leads is the best player on the 49ers’ defense.

Ogunjobi leads the team in tackles

Ogunjobi has recorded a total of 52 tackles on the season, 34 solo and 18 assists. Ogunjobi 13.5 tackles for loss have resulted in 37 lost yards for their opponent. Thankfully, Ogunjobi has only recorded 2.5 sacks for a loss of 18 yards. Ogunjobi holds the 49ers records for single-season and career sacks and tackles for a loss. This guy is a tackling machine.

Ogunjobi was chosen as the first player to wear the honorary 49 jersey

During Charlotte’s first season as an official football team in 2013, head coach Brad Lambert wanted to do something special with the No. 49 jersey. Lambert decided that a player each week will get to wear the No. 49 jersey with the name ‘Grit’ on the back based on their on and off-the-field accomplishments. Ogunjobi was the first player ever to wear the jersey for the Charlotte 49er football team.

Ogunjobi has a LinkedIn page

It is very rare to see a Division I athlete have a LinkedIn account. I guess it is good to be prepared in case a professional football career does not work out. It seems that Ogunjobi does not plan on continuing his football career. Ogunjobi states that he is taking all the required classes to apply for medical school. Here is a section of Ogunjobi’s summary on his profile.

Currently looking for a mentor, at this point in my life I’ve come to the understanding that I don’t know everything, but there are many people willing to give the knowledge if your willing to receive it; I’m one of those people who are ready to not only receive it but also go out and get it.

Ogunjobi is very strong 

The 6-3, 294 pound nose tackle is one very strong person. I think I pulled as muscle just watching this video.

Ogunjobi has read the bible multiple times

According to the Charlotte 49ers athletic page, Ogunjobi has read the entire bible more than once. I thought reading all of the Harry Potter series was an accomplishment, but this is quite impressive.

    He sounds like a very intelligent young man with high character. I wish him luck in all of his pursuits in life – just not too much luck tonight. The Cats need a break badly.

    Does he want a position in Lexington?
