Bill Mancebo's Player Spotlight
This week the player spotlight finds Naweed Habib.
Habib is an ex footballer who began the sport at age 10. Starting with the Fremont Football League Falcons and playing through his school years as an Eagle for American High he's played many positions. His playing days ended in the summer of 2009.
At 17 and after many years of positioning himself as a tight end, full back, offensive lineman and defensive tackle, Naweed began training as usual, this time preparing for his senior year. During the pre-season regimen at Dougherty Valley Football Camp he severely broke his left hand while executing a tackle maneuver.
No longer being able to dominate the football field, Habib rebounded on his well-honed education skills and now bounces ahead to command in another field. He currently attends Ohlone College and looks to transfer in two years to UCLA where he will major in pre-law. He hopes become a sports agent, primarily in basketball, where he will take on the business management for players in the NBA.
Habib says that keeping his physical edge is what makes him what he is and stays in shape by doing a lot of bicycle riding, weight training and some running nearly every day.
For the fun side of life he'll hang out with friends, play a few video games and ride more of his bike. Naweed has a major interest in people and places and enjoys traveling and exploring new places both near and far.
His favorite foods are home cooked meals made by his mother or aunt, especially their homemade bologna lovingly created in traditional Afghani style. For dessert he'll take a few slices of cake and he's not particular; any cake will do.
