This stunning lady is Mrs. Missy Murray, the beautiful and incredible momma of NFL football player Kyler Murray, the talented quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals and former quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners at the University of Oklahoma.
Kyler Murray College, MLN & NFL
Prior to transferring to Oklahoma in 2017, Kyler played for the Texas A&M Aggies, where his dad Kevin Murray not only excelled in football but was also was inducted into the Texas A&M Athletic Hall of Fame in 1999 and subsequently into the 2012 Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame.
Dad Kevin Murray
Kevin signed with the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent; subsequently joined the Calgary Stampeders, but eventually retired due to a chronic ankle injury. He later worked as the quarterbacks’ coach at Plano West High School in Plano.
Kyler Murray was born in Bedford, Texas on August 7, 1997, comes from a long line of athletes, not only his father was an outstanding player, his uncle Calvin Murray (Kevin’s younger bro) a former MLB outfielder, played college baseball at the University of Texas, major league baseball with the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, and the Texas Rangers.
Heisman Trophy and MLB Draft
Kyler won the Heisman Trophy in 2018, that same year the Oakland Athletics selected him in the first round (9th overall) in the MLB draft. Murray signed a contract with Oakland that included a $4.66 million signing bonus; however, after winning the Heisman he decided to skip his senior year and entered the NFL draft instead.
But what about baseball? If Kyler Murray ever considered going back to baseball, the Oakland Athletics still have his rights.
Moving on, to the 2019 NFL draft, where he was drafted first overall by the Arizona Cardinals. His selection came against all odds, due to his height and the fact that he didn’t participate in the individual drill. But surprisingly his height of 5’10” 1/8, 9 1/2 hands, and a weight of 207 pounds, which is close to Russel Wilson (5’10” 5/8, 210 pounds, 10 1.4 hands size).
I can’t stress enough how massive of a win this was for Murray, as many expected him to measure in at — or even under — 5-9, and while there was buzz recently about him weighing over 200 pounds, to be seven pounds above that figure sends a message that he can sustain that weight at the NFL level
When he got to the opportunity for his NFL debut on September 8, 2019, against the Detroit Lions Kyler finished with two touchdowns, 308 passing years, and an interception.
He finished his first season in the NFL, with 20 passing touchdowns, 2,722 passing years, 544 passing years, and 12 interceptions.
