The journey of the Wizard of Oz (also known as South Jersey's Olamide Zaccheaus) to Atlanta

Yet, sometime Sunday night, under the bright lights of national TV, and before the crowd at Mercedes-Benz Stadium bursts into a frenzy and begins blasting the visiting Philadelphia Eagles, Zaccheaus, or “OZ,” as he’s affectionately known at The Prep, will reflect for a moment on the journey that got him here — an undrafted free agent signed out of Virginia, by way of St. Joseph’s Prep, who made the Atlanta Falcons 53-man roster.
