Samuel Briggs is now a priest of Yahweh due to his calling from Yahweh, the grand creator of heaven and earth. He played to the heart of football coaches and followers in the then days. Playing in the K K black Tigers, he was picked to play for Ambassador (Junior Sharks Fc) as it was called in those days. In between 1989 1999 where he was spotted to feature for the maiden Eaglets that shocked the world in China 1985, in the coca cola fifa junior world cup.
The match that catapulted Samuel Briggs to be picked to be part of the Heroic team of the Eaglets first eleven was Police team, where Samuel Briggs as a defender scored the winning goal to hand over the match for his team (the ambassador FC). That match ended 2-1 in favour of the Ambassador at Surulere National stadium, Lagos.
This agile attacking defender comes to reckon based on his modesty in his play. Unfortunately football lovers lost him to serving his grand creator, based on his spiritual father’s advice.
Samuel Briggs is now married with children, comfortably doing well as he chose life above name, wealth and fame in serving Yahweh.
According to Briggs, his prophet, Yahmarabhi warned him that if he does not quit playing football he will lose his life, stating that he came out in the world only to serve Yahweh with him (Yahmarabhi) the prophet.
That singular prophesy ended Samuel Briggs football career till date. Very unfortunate to his fans who might see Briggs blossomed as their international soccer star. ###
