Acho Brothers Make History

On September 9th, the St. Mark’s community will have the opportunity to witness a milestone in School history: two Marksmen brothers competing at the NFL level in their respective season-opener games. Sam Acho ’07 is listed as a starter for the Arizona Cardinals entering his second year in the NFL, while Emmanuel Acho ’08 will look to gain valuable NFL experience playing as a rookie for the Cleveland Browns.
After helping lead St. Mark’s to several SPC football championships, the Acho Brothers started a combined 52 games for the University of Texas at Austin and maintained their unwavering character and commitment to academics the entirety of their time at both institutions. This past summer, the “Brothers Acho” hosted a football camp at St. Mark’s to benefit charitable causes.
Make sure to watch Sam and Emmanuel when they suit up for the NFL!
