Mike Evans and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are through to the Super Bowl LV after a convincing win over Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game. The likes of Tom Brady, Scott Miller, and Leonard Fournette were influential in pulling off a narrow 26-31 win. But one player who has gone under the radar this season is veteran wide receiver, Mike Evans.

The explosive wideout has spent his entire career in Florida, playing for the Buccaneers. He will now make his first appearance at a Super Bowl since joining Tampa Bay in 2014. Evans has been one of the most consistent wideouts in the NFL over the last 6-7 years. He is a soft-mouthed guy with great etiquette and eloquent mannerisms.

Who does he have to thank for that? His ‘life-partner’ Ashli Evans.

College sweethearts Mike Evans and Ashli tie the knot in 2016

Mike Evans began to make waves while playing for Ball High School in Galveston, Texas. He was recruited by Texas A&M and was selected by the Buccaneers in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. But football wasn’t the only thing that made an impact on Mike during his Texas A&M days, as college was where he met his long-time love interest, Ashli Dotson.

The two met in February 2014 and almost immediately hit it off. 10 months later, the pair were engaged in a beautiful ceremony that was attended by their near and dear ones. Two years later they tied the knot on February 13 at a grand ceremony in Houston, Texas.

Ashli is often pictured at Buccaneers’ home games at the Raymond James Stadium. She is often seen wearing a Pirates jersey with her husband’s name at the back. Talk about relationship goals?
