Amukamara, Prince

Upper Deck College Legends 2011, #85

CARD: Upper Deck College Legends 2011
ACQUIRED: Box Breaker, 2019


  • Prince Amukamara was a highly regarded athlete that played CB for the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 2007-10.
  • With measured speed and leaping skills from his days in track and basketball, he emerged as a lockdown DB in his Junior and Senior years for Nebraska.
  • He’d be the second DB selected off the board in the 2011 NFL Draft by the New York Giants.
  • Unable to break into the starting lineup behind Aaron Ross and Corey Webster, Amukamara finished with 14 total tackles, a pick and 3 pass breakups.
  • He started 11 games in 2012, with 53 total tackles, a pick and 7 pass deflections.
  • 2013 saw a career high 85 total tackles for Prince, 14 pass deflections, and another interception.
  • Prince had a career high 3 picks in 2014.
  • After the 2015 season, Amukamara signed a free agent contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars, earning nickleback duties.
  • From there he joined the Chicago Bears in 2017.
  • In 2018 Prince had his first career NFL TD, to go along with 3 picks on the season.
  • He played one final year in Chicago in 2019, but was cut in a cost cutting move.
  • He then spent 2020 on the practice squad of both the Raiders and Cardinals, and the 2021 offseason with the Saints.
  • Prince is currently considered a free agent.


A devout Christian, I am surprised that he didn’t put an inscription on all his cards. When Prince was drafted it came out pretty early that he was still a virgin. This briefly overshadowed his early playing career news. -He later married in 2014.

Mike Sherrard is the story of perseverance through pain as he suffered multiple leg injuries through out his career. As of this post, he was a pretty good TTM signer, so I wanted to get him on a few cards of his I liked. Mike has been active in charitable circles for autism, and has begun making the rounds coaching football at the High School level.
