Gardner Minshew, the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback who has been captivating the NFL world with his record-setting play on the field -appears to be a single man.
Gardner was drafted by the Jaguars in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, he previously played college football at East Carolina, before transferring to Washington State. The 23-year-old got his stars aligned this year and was named starting quarterback for the 2019 season.
He was born May 16, 1996 as Gardner Flint Minshew II -despite there not being a Gardner Minshew I -to parents Flint and Kim Minshew. Gardner’s mom, Kim, played college basketball at Mississippi State while his father Flint Minshew was a Millsaps football standout, a member of the school’s athletic hall of fame.
Gardner has two sisters, Meredith and Callie. Both sisters attend Mississippi State; Meredith is an award-winning dancer while younger sister, Callie, plays college volleyball at Mississippi State.
Minshew earned his collegiate stardom as a member of the Washington State football team, he actually kicked off his career at East Carolina. He graduated from ECU, earning eligibility as a graduate transfer. He then opted for a starting gig at Washington State over an apprenticeship at Alabama.
Under Minshew’s guidance, the Cougars would go on to register 11 victories in 2018, the most in school history. He was rewarded as the Pac 12 offensive player of the year, as well the Johnny Unites Golden Arm Award, which is handed out to the top senior/4th year QB in the nation.
The NFL stud recently revealed just how crazy (literally) he is about playing football. Gardner said he tried to intentionally break his right hand with a hammer in 2016 to gain a medical redshirt year, which would give him another year of eligibility.
That being said, Gardner sure is a great catch, completed with a signature stache and unique personality however, he seems to be currently single.
