Former Alabama OL Cyrus Kouandjio Becomes a U.S. Citizen
Former Alabama offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio accomplished a life-long goal on Thursday when he took the oath to become a U.S. citizen.
The 23-year-old moved to the country from his birthplace of Cameroon when he was just four, and he's been looking forward to the day where he officially became an American. That moment came in Buffalo along with 33 other people.
"I feel great," Kouandjio told Bills reporter Lauren Hall. "19 years later, I finally get my citizenship and I'm finally a true part of this country. It's awesome."
Cyrus, who is now a member of the Buffalo Bills, followed in the footsteps of his older brother Arie. The eldest Kouandjio gained his citizenship almost three months to the day before Cyrus.
Kouandjio will be back on the field for the Bills on Sunday when the team travels to Cincinnati to play the Bengals.
