NFL player LeGarrette Blount, the fab running back with the New England Patriots is not single ladies, we can assure you that Blount has been dating his longtime girlfriend Merissa McCullugh, the prod momma of their adorable son.
LeGarrette Blount the University of Oregon graduate, was born in Madison, Florida. He was named the FedEx NFL Ground Player of the Week last year. LeGarrette signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent in 2010.
The Titans waived him on September 5, 2010. Was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the following day; TB then traded him to the Patriots on April 27, 2013.
We all know Blount has his temper, some people think he is no stranger to trouble. Who can’t forget that interview with Sports Illustrated about the Boise State Broncos in 2008 while in college in Oregon?
He was suspended for the rest of the 2009 season; some time later, threw a punch a his Titans teammate Eric Bakhtiari.
However he has been on his best behavior ever since. But even in those dark days, when the rest didn’t speak highly of him, one person stood by his side, supporting him and showing him all the love she had for him, that person is his girlfriend Merissa.
Meet Merissa McCullugh
28-year-old Merissa T. McCullugh from Eugene, Oregon the daughter of Frank and Alaina McCullugh, met her football stud in 2009, while they attended at the University of Oregon.
Merissa gave birth to her and Legarrette’s son LeGarrette Jr., on September 16, 2009; while he was suspended from the Ducks, the birth of his son was a indeed a wake up call to Blount; he realized he had to mend his ways. A few months after the birth of the son, Blount was reinstated in the team, Merissa remembers that day.
“He was so happy” Merissa said. “In that moment knew he’d gotten the chance to play the sport he loved again. He could see that all the hard work he had put in had paid off.”
Some people are telling me that Merissa and LeGarrette has a second child and that Merissa has an older daughter from a previous relationship, what do you know about that?
