Bob Marley’s son Rohan made his mark on college football at the University of Florida. Rohan’s son, Nico, is already turning heads at Tulane University. Nico, like his father before him, plays the linebacker position. What’s unusual is that linebacker is no easy position for guys of their size. It usually requires a taller, much bigger frame. But these Marley dudes defy the odds of football as Bob Marley defied the music world, before them.
This video shows what these two descendants of Bob Marley are doing for Jamaica, the homeland of their famous father and grandfather, and for football. Rohan talks about growing up in Jamaica, and how Bob Marley started out with very little before rising to the world’s attention. They feel the weight of their father’s legacy.
