Centreville’s Ken Ekanem excels despite father’s absence

For more than six years, Ken Ekanem’s father, Ime Ekanem, has lived in his native Nigeria. The absence of a father in Ken Ekanem’s everyday life has done nothing to hamper his football development. The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder is one of the area’s top recruits. This month, he pared the long list of college suitors down to five schools: North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oregon, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech. (Washington Post)
