Zack Martin, Mark Clayton top Indianapolis’ 10 best NFL stars

10. Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Cathedral

Kiwanuka starred for Cathedral High School at the turn of the century where he became a state champion with the Fighting Irish. The defensive end went on to play college football at Boston College where he became a star, compiling 245 total tackles, a program record 37.5 sacks, 65.5 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and three interceptions. Kiwanuka was the 2004 Big East Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team All-American in 2005. The 6-foot-6 standout became a first-round pick of the New York Giants in 2006, taken No. 32 overall. Kiwanuka quickly turned into an emerging pass rusher for New York, helping the Giants to a win in Super Bowl XLII. His role grew after Michael Strahan’s retirement following the championship season, though he would be in and out of the starting lineup through the middle portion of his career. Still, Kiwanuka tallied a respectable 38.5 sacks and 412 tackles across his nine-year NFL career, earning a second Super Bowl ring in 2012.
