  1. What's sup with the story on Nate...We thought he is Eritrean...take a look the story below...

    “I’ll be the first Ethiopian player to play in the National Football
    League,” said Berhe (pronounced Bur-HEY). “That’s huge for me and huge
    for my family and huge for the people in Ethiopia. It’s a big feat. Not a
    lot of people from East Africa are in the National Football League. I
    look at it all the same, Ethiopia, Eritrea, it’s all the same, just
    different name.”

    A list of the most famous Eritrean athletes contains almost
    exclusively long-distance runners such as Ali Abdallah, Nebiat
    Habtemariam and Simret Sultan. Meb Keflezighi last month won the Boston marathon
    and is an Eritrean refugee who went to UCLA. Thomas Kelati, an
    American-born basketball player from Washington State of Eritrean
    heritage, was once with the Lakers in training camp and plays professionally in Europe.

    Berhe, a California native who has never visited Africa, but plans to
    do so in the near future, has also posted on Twitter: “Shout out to my
    Habesha [those residing in the Horn of Africa] people, much love and
    respect. Will make you proud.”

    Berhe’s parents own and operate five non-profit group homes in the
    San Bernardino, Calif., area that take in psychologically disturbed boys
    ages 8-15 and he says “I’ve always been involved in humanitarian-type

    The Giants hope what Berhe gave San Diego State can transfer to the
    next level even though, at 5-foot-10 and weighing in with the Giants
    this week at 198 pounds, he looks more
    like a cornerback than a safety. His timed speed is ordinary, but that
    did not stop him from leading his team in tackles the past two seasons.
    As for his lack of size, Berhe thinks that’s an overrated component,
    mentioning top safeties such as Earl Thomas of the Seahawks and Devin
    McCourty of the Patriots, who are essentially the same size as Berhe.

    Berhe excelled playing the “Aztec” position, a hybrid safety-linebacker role that allowed him to blitz and offer run
    support, a role Marc Ross, the Giants’ vice president of player
    evaluation, likened to the spot Deon Grant created on the 2011 Super
    Bowl championship team. Berhe is not nearly as big as Grant, though, and
    it remains to be seen if, as a natural strong safety, he can cover
    capably enough and play his aggressive style and hold up physically to
    the rigors of the NFL.

    Scouts describe Berhe as “instinctive,” and said he “plays with abandon” and has a “very likeable personality.”

    Giants general manager Jerry Reese said: “We use the term ‘football player;’ this guy is one of those guys, a football player. He’s all over the place.”

    Berhe admitted he had “wide eyes” last Monday walking into the Giants training
    facility, seeing the four shiny, silver Lombardi Trophies behind glass.
    Through social media, he already has felt some love and believes his
    East African background will resonate in this area.

    “New York and New Jersey are melting pots and I’ve been hearing a lot
    of responses on Twitter and Instagram, people showing support,” Berhe
    said. “I feel like I’ll get a lot of backing down the road here.”

  2. His dad is Eritrean and mom is American...I don't know where it came the Ethiopia involvement in the blood line.

  3. It was a misquote. I'm writing a piece about it as we speak.

  4. I see....
    I have a feeling they are misquoting and misnaming things purposely. Like John Kerry, didn't even apologize and correct himself about Meb incident

  5. Who cares ??? Danton & zeroes rani are Ethiopians too, just wait & see :)
    (As is his excellency from tenmbien) lol
