Toheeb and Jesus - T&J Soccer
Two years ago, Toheeb Okenla and Jesus Fernandez-Ortiz enrolled in NFTE as a senior and junior, respectively, Thornwood High School in South Holland, Illinois. They eventually designed a new soccer sock that featured a sewn-in pocket to allow players to insert the shin guard of their choice. From there, T&J Soccer was born. As the winners of NFTE’s 2013 National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge, Toheeb and Jesus have demonstrated their passion for soccer and business development.
