Despite appearing on national TV every week and holding the fate of our athletic department in their coarse and calloused hands, UM football players are normal students too.
They eat, they sleep, they study, and have to wash their own laundry like the rest of us.
Twenty-year-old freshman Sunny Vincent Odogwu is the 6’8″, 318 lbs. offensive linesman on the University of Miami football team. He wears the number 66 on his jersey and at 3 p.m. on Sunday October 6th Odogwu placed his wet, just-washed laundry into dryer #9 at Pearson Residential College’s laundry room on the third floor.
At 4 p.m. he returned, took the load out, and folded the clothes in his room.
It wasn’t until 9 a.m. the next morning that Odogwu realized that some of his clothes were missing. According to the police report “he believes [they] were taken from the dryer.”
All property missing belongs to the University of Miami Athletic Department. They include:
1. “size 4XL green sweat pants with MIAMI in white along the upper left pant leg.”
2. “size 4XL gray sweat pants with the green and orange U on the upper left pant leg.”
3. “size 3XL green T-shirt with the green and orange U on the front and the #66 written on the factory tag with a dark marker.”
The property is valued at $245.
Any information about the stolen gear should be reported to UMPD. Call 305-284-6666.
