Former Red Wolf Aaron Donkor Attends Seahawks Minicamp
SEATTLE (KAIT) – A 2019 Red Wolf appears to be howling in the Pacific Northwest.
Aaron Donkor is part of the 2021 NFL International Player Pathway program. The IPP aims to provide elite international athletes the opportunity to compete, improve their skills and ultimately earn a spot on an NFL roster.
Donkor played 6 games for Arkansas State in 2019. He recorded 25 tackles and 1.5 TFL. The Seahawks added the German native to their roster last month. # 43 will be in Seattle through training camp.
Donkor reflected on his trip from Aachen to Jonesboro to Seattle.
Aaron Donkor: I’ve always wanted to play Division 1 football, and when I got there it was over before I really started. But I learned a lot. I learned that it is a game of adjustments. It’s about competing to improve every day. I learned that the game will move forward, that time flies and that you have to adapt. I had a coach, Christian Moore, he had contact with the International Pathway Program. And he threw my name in the mix, and they reached out to me. Then they had regional combines where I showed up. My goal for this year is to make this team better. Whatever the cost. I just have to earn the confidence of the coaches. I feel like I have a chance, like all the guys on this team, to make it a special team. If I am coachable, if I show my effort on the field. And I really want to grow up and play linebacker.
