Bio:   I'm a senior in high school, and have been playing sports for as long as I can remember. Being a top-notch student is my number one priority. I am striving to become the best student-athlete I can be. My father is originally from Nigeria, West Africa. When I was seven years old, I traveled to Nigeria to visit the school my family helped to build and to give back to his village. My goal is to be able to play pro-football in the National Football League and to be able to help the less fortunate. 

I'm  6'3 and 195 lbs., and play WR and Safety.  I am an honor student, a member of the ski club, and I also participate in hockey and basketball. I am active in my community by helping youth in Pop Warner football, reading to elementary school students and visiting residents at nursing homes. I volunteer with the Genesee Valley Youth Hockey; a program for at-risk youths. I am a certified life guard and I work at Sea Breeze Amusement park during the summer.

Osondi Dimgba stands almost 6'3 and weighs about 195lbs.  With a strong work-ethic and athletic ability, Dimgba has improved his performance on the field over the past year and now is a solid FBS prospect.  "He's the type of player any coach would want on his team and in his locker room.  He rarely complains about anything, he just goes out and does his assignment," explains Zane Howard (NLB Bats 7v7 Coach).  "His athleticism this off-season has really surprised me, and the fact that he has learned to utilize his athleticism on the field has really impressed a lot of people," says Howard.


Dimgba has participated in two regional 7v7 Tournaments held by Pylon Elite Camps (New Jersey and Ohio), and has vastly improved his coverage skills at the Safety position earning him NLB Bats 2014 Most Improved Defensive Player Award.  "He's a very smart player with raw ability, and great athleticism.  "I still believe there is so much more he can improve upon, but he just keeps getting better, and better which has helped open some eyes for Osondi as a legitimate D1 prospect ....I look forward to his senior season at Greece Athena.  I wouldn't be surprised if he makes All Greater Rochester (AGR) First Team," explains Howard.


Academically Dimgba has a GPA of 3.2 and will be taking SAT's this spring.  Rutgers, Central Connecticut, and  Youngstown State have all shown a strong interest by visiting Greece Athena HS all in the same week, and more visits are expected.  "Osondi is truly a diamond in the rough and I'm sure any college coach is gonna love the kid." says Howard.


Dimgba can play WR, but projects as a SS, he can jump out of the gym and make the play or be very physical when the ball arrives.  His quiet humble personality is a contrast to how he plays on the field.  And his work-ethic off the field can only improve his overall game even more.  Beyond Athletics Scouting will continue to follow Dimgba's progress this off-season and throughout his senior season.
