Rams safety O.J. Atogwe has guts

Rams franchise player O.J. Atogwe is a player that likes to take risks; he’s forced 33 turnovers since the start of 2006, the most in the NFL.

Apparently, the Canadian born player’s risk-taking extends beyond the field.

49ers coach Mike Singletary told the Sacramento Bee Friday that the safety is dating Singletary’s daughter. Atogwe heads to San Francisco this week to face the 49ers and a potentially awkward conversation.

Luckily for Atogwe, Singletary is cool with the arrangement.

“He’s a very nice guy,” said Singletary. “He’s a gentleman. He’s been to my home several times and we’ve had conversations, not about football, but about life.”

We often talk about a player’s bravery going over the middle or playing through pain, but dating the opposing coach’s daughter when the coach is Mike Singletary is a true act of valor.
