Jaguars’ Adam Gotsis, Foye Oluokun to wear flag decals in Weeks 4 and 5

The NFL announced an initiative Wednesday with a list of more than 200 players who will wear flag decals on their helmet to celebrate their nationality or cultural heritage in Weeks 4 and 5.

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive lineman Adam Gotsis and linebacker Foye Oluokun are represented on that list and will wear the Australian and Nigerian flags on their helmets, respectively.

Gotsis, 30, was born in Melbourne, Australia and grew up playing Australian rules football before taking up the sport of American football when he was 13. He came to America in 2012 to play college football at Georgia Tech, and was picked in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos.

Oluokun, 27, is the son of Nigerian immigrants and played collegiately at Yale before getting picked in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. He joined the Jaguars earlier this year as a free agent and is a defensive team captain.

Also on the list of players participating in the helmet initiative is safety Ayo Oyelola, who is a native of the United Kingdom and joined the Jaguars as part of the NFL’s International Pathway Program. Oyelola is currently on the Jaguars’ practice squad.
