Akin Oni-Orisan is a very charismatic pickleball player. Akin has a ready laugh, and when something strikes him as funny, he may roll on the floor laughing at the top of his lungs. Many of my volleyball friends have asked “what’s going on with that guy?”, and tell them he’s having fun and enjoying life like only Akin can. Akin came to the US many years ago to go to college, and was a teacher in the Detroit Public Schools for many years, before retiring. Akin also enjoys playing Mexican Train.
