Former Lincoln Player Signs Rookie Deal with NY Jets

Former PSAL player from Lincoln HS, Israel Abanikanda officially singed a rookie contract with the NY Jets. Before taking his talents to Pitt for college, Abanikanda was the 2019 New York State Gatorade Player of the Year as a RB, and a Mayor’s Cup 100-meter dash champion on the track, when he was at Lincoln.

Abanikanda was selected in the fifth round by the Jets in the 2023 draft. 

Abanikanda led the nation in touchdowns (21) during the 2022 NCAA FBS season. Gaining 1,431 yards on the ground, the Bedford-Stuyvesant native won the Atlantic Coast Conference rushing title despite missing 1.5 games due to injury.
