Legedu Naanee was one of the best athletes to suit it up for Boise state, coming into the blue as a quarterback, eventually starring as a wide receiver.

His talents even helped elevate his game to the next level...Playing six seasons in the NFL...Four of them with the San Diego Chargers.

Naanee was recently in town for a Boise State football camp, and I had the chance to visit with him and see what is keeping him busy in Southern California.


Coming out of high school Naanee was recruited by several Pac-12 and Big 12 schools but ultimately decided to play for Boise State.

In his time on the blue, he finished with over 1000 yards receiving and had 12 touchdowns.  Naanee says the style that the Broncos play now is more competitive and much more talented.

"Back then they were getting guys, and we would get a couple of JC guys and all that.  Now they are able to go into any high school in the country.  In this region if you want to come to the blue and people knows what that means," said, Former Bronco Legedu Naanee.

As far as recruiting goes Naanee says the Broncos are in the right place.

"People are going to want to continue to come here because of the success that they have, and the guys that they have in the building and the facilities that they have now," said, Naanee.

In his time as a professional athlete, he had to constantly take care of the body to make sure that he was in tip-top shape.  So when he hung up his helmet Naanee put his business management degree to good use, owning three business all geared towards helping the human body.

"Really from playing, from getting massages twice a week before the game, before the week started and after the game.  We do facials acupuncture, botox, laser hair removal, fillers, peels, and nails.  The whole medical part of it opened up and it was a great opportunity and I jumped on it," said, Naanee.
