School and football haven’t always mixed. It is well-documented that some players, particularly in decades past, had to let their education fall by the wayside if they were going to make it as a footballer, given the time and dedication needed to excel in the sport.
But in recent times, some players have decided to combine the two and one of such stars is Reading defender, Baba Rahama, who for example has shown through his good project that Education can go with any Sporting activity.
In a clever, somewhat grandiose, move, Baba Rahama found some common ground and the opportunity to promote Education through his project.
