Stephon Gilmore is not only the greatest defensive player the NFL has seen in a while, he is also a devoted husband and loving father.
Gilmore met his wife Gabrielle during their college years. Gabrielle herself was an athlete who ran track. She even placed sixth at the SEC Indoor Championships in both the 60m and 200m. To add to that, he has also competed at NCAA Indoor & Outdoor Championships where she ran the 60m track.
Gilmore and his wife have been married since 2014 and they have two children together: a son Sebastian and a daughter Gisele. However, they are both very private when it comes to their life together and their relationship.
What we know more about is Gilmore’s amazing NFL career. He is currently preparing for the upcoming game that the Patriots have on their schedule. When talking about why he loves the game and why he is such a dedicated player, he explained:
“It takes a lot of hard work during training camp and during the season to get better and better every game, because nobody is playing his best football in Week 1. You get better and learn about yourself, learn about your teammates. You take it all in and just try to improve your game each and every week.”
During another interview, he said:
“It is tough every week going against the best guy. (You can’t) have one play that you slack off. I try and focus on each and every play and try not to let my team down. Going in each and every week you know the ball is coming your way, that is the thing you do know because you’re covering the best guy. Sometimes being on another guy you know the ball might not come your way, but you still play hard. When you’re covering the best guy the ball can come to you every single play, so that is the thing that drives me each and every week.”
We can’t wait to see him back on the field!
