"In an interview with Muscle & Fitness magazine, New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara acknowledged that he's still a virgin and that he doesn't drink soda, let alone alcohol. As a result of his lifestyle choices, Amukamara admitted that some people call him "The Black Tim Tebow."

The 24-year-old former first-round draft pick revealed his strict training regimen as well as his clean diet in the piece with Matt Tuthill, but it's the activities Amukamara doesn't participate in that have caught the most attention.

In addition to saying that he doesn't eat bacon and that he only has 7.8 percent body fat, Amukamara talked about growing up Catholic ..."

Funny.  Where I come from, "growing up Catholic" is code for "debauched by 17."

Amukamara was born in Leominster, Mass., to parents of Nigerian descent. According to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk, he has five sisters (Princess, Precious, Promise, Peace and Passionate). Youngmisuk noted that "his mother, Christie, was a sprinter on the 1984 Nigerian Olympic track team" and "his father, Romanus, is a chief." His grandfather was the king of the Awo-Omamma in Imo State of Nigeria.
