WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue senior wire receiver Anthony Mahoungou says he's the first French football player to receive a division one football scholarship; but he hopes he's the first of many.
"When I dress up in the locker room," said Mahoungou, "I take a few seconds and say, 'Anthony you go not only for your team but for your country, because people are counting on you. Over there, I'm not going to say I'm a star but I realized every time I went back home, people look up to me."
Mahoungou is Purdue's secon-leading receiver this fall (after five games) with 219 receiving yards, and scored a touchdown against Ohio.
