Biography:

The Thunder's 'Defensive MVP' of 2015, as voted by the coaches and staff, KC Obi excelled in multiple disciplines during his second season with the Portland Thunder. Obi began the season at defensive end, until an injury to mack linebacker Brandon Tett forced the AFL sophmore into the second level. KC's quickness and strength aided him well in the new role, allowing himt to finish the 2015 season second on the team in sacks (6.5) and tackles for a loss (7.5).

Last season, Obi contributed in 15 games, with 22 tackles. Obi’s five sacks were good for second on the team. He also holds the only safety recorded in team history.

At North Texas, in his senior season, he finished tops on the Mean Green with 10.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks in 2012. Obi was awarded the Bill Bishop Award for the Mean Green’s Outstanding Defensive Lineman for that season.  

Obi obtained his degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science, worked as a fitness trainer for LA Fitness, and also speaks a little Spanish.
