  2. 2. Jaleel Awini graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder in December of 2016. Jaleel Awini majored in Economics, and was a member of the football team.
  3. 3. Jaleel Awini: Air Force Academy Jaleel Awini originally signed to play with the Air Force Academy Falcons, but transferred to CU after his second year there. Always a quarterback, he switched to defense as a Buffalo, and impressed his coaches with his skill at the new position.
  4. 4. Jaleel Awini Said “I just have to keep improving every day and I should use the same play-making skills I had on offense on defense,” Jaleel Awini said at the time.
  5. 5. Jaleel Awini: Toughest Players Jaleel Awini's coach at Rangeview High School in Aurora, Colorado, remembers him as one of the toughest players he ever coached. In one game, he got crushed by an opposing player, and coach Dave Gonzales said he thought he’d have to take his star player out of the game. “I don’t know if he lied his way through the concussion test, but the kid who hit him got ejected for leading with his head,” Gonzales recalled. “Jaleel got up, shook it off. Next series [he was] back in the game and led us to a come-from-behind win.”
  6. 6. Jaleel Awini: Acknowledged "It was unbelievable. It showed his toughness, his leadership. That will always stand out with me.” Jaleel Awini acknowledged that quarterback would always be his position, but said the needs of the team matter most. “I was a little torn at first, but my ultimate goal is to play and help this team in any way I can.”
