Larry Ogunjobi(Ragsdale High School) was the first Charlotte 49er to be invited to the NFL Draft Combine…..
This is just one of many firsts that Ogunjobi has reached for the 49ers’ young football program. He was the first 49ers player to be invited to the Reese’s Senior Bowl and was the first 49er to be named to National Watch Lists, landing spots on the Bednarik Award (college’s top defensive player) and the Outland Trophy (nation’s top interior lineman) Watch lists.
Ogunjobi is the only player to start all 46 games in the 49ers’ four-year history. He was the first player honored with the program’s coveted No. 49 jersey, for the 49ers inaugural game, Aug. 31, 2013 vs. Campbell. He recorded the 49ers first tackle for loss (TFL). This past year, he became the first 49er to be named first-team all-Conference USA. As a junior, he was one of the first two 49ers to earn second-team all-Conference USA honors.
He holds school career records for tackles (217), TFL (49.0), sacks (13) and QB hurries (33). A double major in Computer Science and Biology, he earned his degree in Computer Science this past December and was a three-time selection to the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll.
Ogunjobi is one of 11 C-USA players invited to the NFL Combine.
