Arizona Cardinals 2012 Profile From A to Z: Sam Acho


Sam Acho, remember the name.  Acho, came on strong in his rookie season of 2011.  He started the season slow, only getting one tackle in the first five games.  However, isn’t always about how you finish?  He finished strong.  He ended the 2011 season with 40 tackles and seven sacks.  Not bad for a player who did close to nothing until the Pittsburgh Steelers game in October.  He is an up and coming linebacker who should solidify the position for years to come.

2011 season:

Tackles: 35 solo , 5 assisted – 40 total

Sacks: 7.0

Forced fumbles: 4

Fumble recoveries: 1

Fun fact:  His mother ran track at University College Hospital in Nigeria
