Tiffany Rethwill is the lovely girlfriend of NFL player, Walter Thurmond, who has made a shocking announcement. At only 28, the 5 ft 11 in player is reportedly retiring from professional football.
Her boyfriend played six seasons in the NFL with stints in a number of teams, including the Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles. Walter Thurmond’s decision to walk away comes as a surprise after he had a big 2015 season. His change of path could be due to concerns over concussions, though the Eagles’ site said he’s an “avid film and art enthusiast” and clearly has other interests.
He was born Walter Riley Thurmond III on Aug. 12, 1987 in Hollywood, Calif. to parents: Walter Thurmond Jr. and Kassie Carney. Thurmond played football and ran track at the University of Oregon from 2005 to 2009 where he majored in Political Science.
Thurmond was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth round (111th overall) of the 2010 NFL draft. He was primarily a slot cornerback with the Seattle Seahawks in 2013, earning a Super Bowl ring.
In 2014, Thurmond signed a one-year contract with the New York Giants. In his second game, he tore a pectoral muscle and was placed on injured reserve.
On March 11, 2015, Thurmond signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles credited Thurmond with 62 tackles, including six for loss. He also had two sacks.
Walter, who has endured several serious injuries through his career, had a career-high 73 tackles and also three interceptions, after having just one interception his first five seasons. He also set career highs in sacks (two) and forced fumbles (two). He took to safety very well and could have had a lucrative and successful second half of his career at that position, experts say.
Someone who will support Walter’s decision no matter what, is certainly the pretty, Tiffany Rethwill.
Tiffany Rethwill attended Portland State University. She is a graduate from Sutherlin Highs School, where she ran track.
The Oregon native is the daughter of Dr. Rethwill and his wife, Angie. Tiffany Rethwill is one of five children, her siblings are, Tyler, Destiny, David, and Celine. (pictured with her siblings below).
