Haitian-American Miami Dolphins' safety Louis Delmas, a Haitian

Here is a picture of Haitian-American Louis Delmas who is currently playing for Miami Dolphins as a safety.

The chests of many Haitians in South Florida swell with pride when they speak of the two Haitian players in Dolphins. Louis Delmas and Terrence are two of the at least 20 known NFL players with Haitian roots. On March 10, 2014, Louis Delmas (born 12 April, 1987), has signed a $3.5 million (maximum) one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. Terrence Fede (born 19 November, 1991), is the first player ever drafted from Marist because of his sparkling performance with one 40-yard dash time of 4.76 seconds, with a 10-yard split of 1.62. Delmas is happy over his selection to play for Miami Dolphin, because very few Haitians are fortunate enough to succeed in something that they really love to do. The duo has come to the limelight after a breakthrough performance of the Dolphins' 27-13 victory over Jacksonville on Sunday, October 26. Delmas, who only speaks Creole, has expressed his happiness and pride with own Haitian roots and has mentioned the power of Haitian tradition and elegance in sports. He got his name from the place where he was born-- "Delmas", a litter town in Port-au-Prince. He attended Western Michigan University and spent his first five NFL seasons with Detroit.
