A Dallas Cowboys player and former University of Kansas star credits his former teacher for his success.
Linebacker Azur Kamara was reunited over Zoom with his former teacher at Frank Borman Elementary in Phoenix Wednesday. Before two weeks ago, Kamara hadn’t talked to his former teacher Margaret Bradley since he was in sixth grade. But over the years, he never forgot her.
Azur Kamara was an outside linebacker at the University of Kansas.
“She always had a smile on her face,” Kamara said. “She was very nice overall, never got mad at anything. Always had a cool head and always had a smile on her. I love talking to her.”
Bradley never forgot him either. She would use him as an inspiration to encourage other students to succeed.
“I use him as an example,” she said. “He’s touched on a lot of children’s lives.”
