Prince Maurice Shembo immigrated to the United States from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1986.
He was born on the 24th of December in 1991.
His sister, Christelle Shembo, is a forward for the Wake Forest University women’s basketball team.
He was born in 1991 in Greensboro, North Carolina, the city where he grew up and nurtured his childhood ambition of being a professional NFL player.
Prince Shembo attended Ardrey Kell High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, and due to his excellent performance in High school, he received a scholarship from Notre Dame. He accepted the offer and declined others scholarship offers from different places.
The now-waived player, Prince Shembo got drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the fourth round (139th overall).
It took place in the 2014 NFL Draft, and he concomitantly signed with the Falcons on May 18, 2014.
However, his playing career came to an instant ending when the Falcons waived him on May 29, 2015, after he was arrested for aggravated cruelty to animals after allegedly killing his girlfriend’s dog.
His attorney ascertained that he accidentally killed the Yorkshire terrier his girlfriend owned when he kicked it after it had bitten him, which later led to the death of the dog.
The situation brought Prince Shembo playing career to an unexpected end because his club did not tolerate his action and subsequently waived him from the team.
