Ziggy Ansah makes play change with 94,000 bottles of water donated to Flint, Michigan



Former BYU football player Ziggy Ansah has made a big difference in the NFL and today he is making a huge difference in Flint, Michigan.

Ansah delivered 94,000 bottles of water to Flint with his teammates, donating that number because he is No. 94. The town, which is about 70 miles away from Detroit where Ansah plays for the Detroit Lions,  has been struggling with contaminated water. The water has had high levels of lead in the water since April 2014.

A native of Ghana, Ansah told Detroit Lions writer Tim Twentyman that he understands how difficult it is to be without clean water.


Ansah, who played his first season of football in 2010, will be joined by Detroit Lions teammate Calvin Johnson in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 31 in Hawaii’s Aloha Stadium.
